Hours ago, when the skies were clear, I donned the soft-as-baby’s-bottom burgundy suede flats Santa brought me. I think he was trying to send me a message about the heels since I found an identical pair of flats in navy as well as a pair of black and chocolate brown riding boots under the tree.
I. Just. Cannot. I cannot tread in snow deeper than the depth of my ballet flats. They’re not treated (and even if they were my feet would get cold!)
The solution comes to me. I send my children to the car. My 11 year old (also not prepared for mother nature’s frosty end to the evening) has less lovely shoes on. Her feet are not that much smaller then my own. Her 7 year old brother runs back (also on in his totally-not-appropriate chuck taylors) with her kicks.
