SHOPPING FOR SHOES WITH MY GRANDDAUGHTER

Dear Reader,

My name is Bernadette and I am hopelessly addicted to footwear.  There, I have admitted it.  If I were single, I would make Carrie Bradshaw look like a piker when it comes to shoe extravagance.  My husband has never understood my obsession. And sadly the current state of my health precludes wearing high heels; one of my top shoe choices.

On Sunday, I took my granddaughter out to buy her a new outfit.  The first stop was the shoe aisle.  Imagine my delight when at the top of her lungs she exclaimed, “MeMe, shoes for me?”  She ripped off her sneakers and flung them in the back of the shopping cart.  Without batting an eyelash tried on every pair in her size and rejected them until we got to the most magical pair –

black shoes


She clutched the box to her heart and wouldn’t let it out of her sight for the rest of the shopping trip.  But the best part of the shopping expedition came when she spied PopPop.  She exclaimed with a great big smile at the top of her voice, “PopPop, shoes, see, new shoes.”  PopPop took one look at me and shook his head.  He was sure I was on my way to corrupting my granddaughter and introducing her to my love affair with footwear.  And he was right!

Wishing you great looking shoes,

Bernadette

Note to reader – My granddaughter is only 2 1/2.

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. Haha this is so sweet! My daughter counted my moms shoes one by one announcing the numbers as she went, mom kept telling her they were for work! This was years ago but reading your post made me think of it! Wonderful

  2. Why is it men don’t understand that the outfit determines the shoe style and color. One shoe does not fit all outfits! Oh yes, those are the perfect and magical shoes! Sounds like a perfect shopping trip!
