You know those random shoes on the side of the road?
I know how they get there.
I was out at a playdate this morning, came home, and then later left the house again to run to the grocery store. Driving there I noticed a tiny, dirty, old-looking shoe in the middle of the road and thought "Oh, how cute! It looks like Mason's shoe!".
And in the next breath I thought "Oh shit! It is Mason's shoe!"
Can you guess which one?
Yup, Super-Mom herself had put it on top of the car yesterday for some lame reason like letting Mason "feel the grass tickle his feet". And then I'd promptly forgotten about it until that exact moment when I saw it laying helpless, alone, and runover on the street.
On the way back from the grocery store I looked for shoe #2 and spotted it a little closer to my house in the ditch, clean and upright. Poor shoe #1 had clung on for so long, a good 4 minutes from the house that it just didn't have the strength to toss itself into a ditch and had to settle for the road.
I drove home nearly in tears because I felt so bad for those lost little soles ...
*note: only one shoe was harmed during the making of this story*
**note2: Daddy Jamie rescued both shoes on his way home from work. They are now resting quietly, trying to forget about this horrific day**
