The Shoe Queen

Seriously....how FAST can a toddler's feet grow!?!?!?

At the end of May, Grace was wearing size 7 toddler shoes. Yesterday, I looked down at her cute flower sandals and realized that her big toe was hanging out the front of her shoe. DAMN! So off to Target we went for new shoes. Of course, she had to find every pair of Dora the Explorer shoe they carried this week; we ended up with 2 pairs of them....in size 8!!!! All the size 7 shoes went into the "Grown out of Shoes" box that I keep in her closet.


(Sidenote: Mama Chix---I am mailing that box to you!!!!)



I have been told countless times that babies/kids grow out of clothes so fast. I never really thought that shoes would be the true culprit to my depricating bank account. At least her clothes will last through a season.....this is round 2 of the spring/summer shoes!



Oh well. Every girl needs cute shoes and now Grace has adorable little shoes that will fit her for 3 or 4 weeks!

My daughter was the same way! It seemed like every other week her feet grew. But now that she's almost 5, they seem to have tapered off a bit. I love the background on your site!

I LOVE the little girl's shoes! They are so cute. But you're right. Grace is already in size 4 and growing faster and faster. It is EXPENSIVE. But thank goodness for Target! :-)

I mailed out a box to you yesterday! Baby Block shower gift and some hair accessories for Grace's new hairdo!

Wow thats fast. G is 27 months and her feet have always grown really slow but then again so does she. She still wears a size 5!

Those feet look mighty tasty...I am sure you nibble on them all the time LOL!

I totally know what you mean. I had put my little guy in new shoes a month ago, and it seems his feet have outgrown them already. Yikes. Agreed about Target, pretty cheap and yet pretty comfortable shoes for the little people in our lives.

Just wait till she's older! I have for some years automatically bought two of every pair of play shoes I buy for my kids: one in the size they're currently wearing, and the next size up. It's just practical, really...

(And expensive!)

ONE day they'll stop growing, but right now my son (age 17) wears size 12 - that's twelve MEN'S - and my daughter (almost 13) wears size 10 - yes, ten WOMEN'S, four sizes bigger than her mother! Phew.

Thank goodness my oldest has a) stopped growing and b) lives on her own and buys her OWN shoes!
