It's All In The Shoes

As you know, with Toots, all clothing must be either a costume or a sports uniform. I try my best to get him into normal cute clothing, but it us usually a battle I don't want to participate in.
So, the other day, we went to buy some new school shoes and he picked out some SKATE shoes.
He logically deduced- if you have skate shoes, you had better get on a
Mister Luke scrounged through our garage and geared this boy up to the max.
He got a little dirty
and learned some new moves


and took some spills
and his mother gasped loudly many times
and said many silent prayers

but Toots got up every time with no tears and
tried and tried again as the old saying goes

and the board slipped from under him and skated away from him and
taunted him with its rollerability

and he got up and told that board that he
would be the master

but that board was not to be taken easily and it soon knocked him down again


and we decided we had missed a spot of protection

perhaps some Charmin padding would be in order
next time because
this little four year old was now
but, still feeling like one cool kid!

I never would have guessed he was only 4. He looks much older!

And I love the story in pictures.
