You get what you pay for

These shoes are a little bit cute, right? Not "knock your socks off cute", but for never been worn, in my size and a $1 at a garage sale, I bought them. Wouldn't you know, that within hours of them entering my house, Kaylee went crazy with them.

Yes, those dollar shoes left black marks all over my kitchen in a perfect path from one side of the kitchen to the other. It happened on Brian's watch on Mother's Day, so he helped me scrub it off with Comet. Happy Mother's day to me. At one point, the entire family was working on it, where we once again learned about "squeezing water out of the rag". It's such a WET lesson to learn, and I secretly loved that we were all working on a project together.

OH! The shoes don't even fit! I don't think I'd keep them even if they did, knowing what they are capable of. Size 8...any takers before they get dropped off at the Goodwill?

Wow...that is too funny. I bought my older son a pair of second-hand dress shoes for a wedding a few years ago. I only bothered to try one on him because they were fastened together. Well, my husband and I were in the wedding, too, so my in-laws were in charge of dressing him. When they came to the wedding with him in his dress clothes and messy sneakers, I was mortified. But it turns out that the other shoe was defective, and they couldn't even get his foot in the silly thing! When we held it up to the other one, it was extremely narrow in comparison even though they both said the same size. Lesson learned! :)
