It was a sad, sad Sunday morning a few weeks ago when Lily insisted she wear her favorite little slip on ballerina flats to Sunday school and they did not fit. I knew they were getting much too tight on her and had tucked them away in her drawer wanting to have them shadow boxed with a favorite dress she had already outgrown. We went round and round and she shed many tears. However, she found them and jammed her little feet into them anyway. She ran into the great room and yelled "tada"! It was hilarious! I could not help but laugh at her. I wish I had taken a picture of her feet. She actually looked like the stepsisters in the Cinderella movie. Her foot was about to pop out and you could actually see under her arch and into the shoe.
These will forever be her favorite shoes I think, and mine.
