New Shoes

Every girl likes new shoes! Especially if your name is Nora. Nora is a shoe queen. She sleeps in her shoes sometimes. Which is what she did with these new shoes this week. We stopped in Target this week and while we were there we looked at the costumes. Now earlier this week she had told me that she wanted to be Sleeping Beauty but as she looked at all the princess costumes she noticed something different. It was a Dorothy costume. She walked right up to it and said "I wanna be that." I was shocked. She didn't even know who that was but she liked the picture on the outside I guess. I just kept asking her "are you sure?" And she just kept telling me "yes." So, as everyone probably knows Target carries the red glitter slippers year round, so I knew we could get the shoes to match. So we did. She came straight home, put on the dress and the shoes and took a nap in them. She slept for 3 hours and I finally had to wake her up. When she woke up she took off the shoes and they were literately dripping sweat. Gross. But she loves them.



Then my aunt called me this week because she was getting rid of my cousin Darcey's twin bed. So, we went over to her house this week to pick it up. While we were there my aunt gave Nora a pair of Darcey's shoes that she had out grown. Nora wore them the whole day today. They are a little big but she had no problem walking in them. She got lots of compliments. They are cute with that little wedge. Now I am afraid that this will be the only shoes she will wear.

That is so Nora! I was Dorothy one time, too. And Jason was the scarecrow! ;)
