At Least I Remembered His Shoes Today

Does anyone read my site via a feed? I switched to a short feed instead of a full one after being alerted to the bitacle nonsense, and it may have helped. They've pirated my older posts (gnarly thieves!) but the recent ones haven't appeared.

We had a productive day today. We've got a new box of diapers, food in the fridge for the week, a fresh complement of sippy cups and miniature, round-tined forks. The grocery store even had gallon containers of organic whole milk in stock, miracle of miracles. I no longer check the expiry dates of milk, knowing that it'll be long gone before the day comes.

I feel like a successful quartermaster. Of course, the last time I felt this prepared, the next thing we did was drive to an event without bringing shoes for the child. He was a new walker at the time, so he didn't mind being carried, but I felt pretty foolish. We were all dressed up, dresses and suits, while Q kicked his shoeless little feet.

Tonight it was time for bedtime milk when I realized that I hadn't yet washed the new sippy cups but had already packed away the old ones. I'm hoping that breaks the jinx and there isn't something even sillier coming this way.

Photo: While SwingDaddy waiting (endlessly, it seemed) for the class photo to be taken at yesterday's reunion, Q and I had some fun with the camera too. The focus isn't quite right in this shot, but I like it anyway. We were on the same side of the railing when I took it, so I'm lucky that it turned out at all.

Before my son was walking, I took him out barefoot on a hot, summer day and two women came on told me that I should put socks on him or he would get a cold. The temperature was 42 degrees celcius

Great picture, especially knowing you stretched and did it without being directly behind the camera.

We are so use to little ones not having shoes, it's easy to forget. Of course being a parent means forgetfulness runs amuck.

You are on a roll there. Yeah, been there done that! One time we went to the mall and we forgot our son's shoes...and had to turn back home. I mean he's 3 y/o and all, so having to hold him throughout the mall w/o shoes would have been a bit weird, you think?

Glad you like the picture! And also to know that I'm not the only one who forgets shoes.

rohini - 42 degrees celcius? I would think heatstroke, rather than a cold!
