So sad...

Something quite sad has happened in our household. Like seriously sad. Sad enough where I could very easily cry if I think about it for too long. Scarlett has outgrown her Kittie Cat rain boots, size extra small, 5/6.

Previously, when asked what shoes she would like to wear, Scarlett would always pull out these boots. I, being a horrific mother, rarely let her wear them in public - let's be honest...the "everyday" doesn't often call for rain boots. The weather has been beautiful recently, and I was ready to let Scarlett go puddle hopping donning these appropriate boots. That's when I made the discovery that Kittie Cat was no longer with us. I am suddenly feeling very regretful. Poor Bubsy loved these boots and I should have let her wear them everyday...or at least more than I did...which was next to never. They didn't go to complete waste though. Many a sleepy Sunday morning was spent hanging out in both pj's and Kittie Cat rain boots. Those will now be some of my fondest memories.
I'd like to introduce you to Kittie Cat's replacement. Not quite as purr-fect, but adorable none the less. Meet Polka Dot rain boots, size small, 7/8.

So far, Scarlett has worn them three times in a 24 hour period. If she wants to wear them, I'm going to let her. I'm not making the same mistake twice. So folks, if you see my Bubsy truckin' down the street wearing these rain boots in complete and total non-rain weather - please smile and know that she is the happiest toddler in the world. How can you call that impractical?

So cute! But why do I get the feeling that you are not entirely convinced?
