Favorite Photo Friday: Brandon's footwear

May 2008

Brandon is rather particular about shoes...and he goes through phases. Right now, he refuses to wear anything but heavy duty athletic shoes. No slip-ons, no flip flops, no crocs. He only grudgingly wears dress shoes on Sundays because we insist. Back in 2008 Brandon was obsessed with cowboy boots. He'd wear them till the the stitching was coming un-stitched and the soles had holes. And then insist on another new pair just like the old ones....despite the fact that there were other footwear options still in his closet. So when I told him to grab his shoes and head to the car in preparation for a trip to Grandma and Grandpa's house I shouldn't have been surprised to find that even though he was wearing shorts and a tank top, the black cowboy boots completed the outfit.

It must be a boy thing because Matthew does the exact same thing. We finally hid the Buzz Lightyear snow boots in mid-June and then he cried when he couldn't wear them.
