Since I had a post about dealing with baby's old clothes, I might as well talk about the shoes. I shake my head when I think of the fact that my babies actually have shoes. If I was a 100% rational human being, my girls will not have shoes till they can walk. I however seem to have these things call emotions and hormones and my babies have a box full of old and new shoes.
Most of the shoes have been worn once and by once I mean one time. I totally understand the need to buy shoes that babies will wear only once and in the same vein I understand the need to memorialise dem shoes. So here are the options I considered for keeping my babies' first shoes
- Bronzing: That's like "everybody does it" right?! It's the conventional option but the price tag does not appeal to me.
- Christmas Ornaments: The shoes are small enough to hang on a Christmas tree. A plus is that the kids will be tickled pink see their first shoes on the tree as they grow older
