My10 year old daughter did not have to wear my shoes most of the weekend because hers were soaked from the snow.
My 10 year old daughter does not wear size 8 1/2 shoes. She also does not only own one pair of shoes at a time because her feet grow so darn fast we never know if they will last 2 days or 2 months.
My daughter did not once throw a fit at school because her shoes didn't fit. She didn't take her shoes off and throw them at her best friend to make the point that they didn't fit. Big Chocolate did not bring her home from school just so he could ahem "discipline her".
After being "disciplined" she did not keep jumping up and down over and over yelling "I'm not wearing shoes that don't fit!" I did not have to bail and have her wear a pair of her big brother's shoes so she could go to school and not be "disciplined" all day long.
I did not promptly go buy her a new pair of shoes and have it delivered to her classroom in the middle of the day. I am not a bad mom!
