As I’ve previously written about Cash’s extensive shoe collection https://wordpress.com/post/wisconsindadger.com/416 when he couldn’t even walk yet, I’m happy to update that he is a consistent walker now and putting his shoes-and ours-to use.
Cash hasn’t reached the stage where he seems to have any preference for the clothes he wears but he does have strong feelings about which shoes he wears. Even in the house, he always wants to wear shoes.
At first, we just thought it was a quirk or a novelty but then we realized it’s also a practicality. We have wood floors throughout and those onesie jammies with the feet attached don’t provide great traction.
Note: Some jammies and socks do have rubber gripping bottoms but we can’t always provide those for him. Meghan already does at least one laundry load per day. So, the shoes cover it for him.
Lately, Cash has tired of his (roughly) 30 pairs of shoes and boots and sneaked into Mom and Dad’s sneakers.
He, impressively, moves along in stride in the oversized footgear and clomps throughout the house.
As the song goes, while our Cash ‘walks the line‘, we must keep our eyes wide open all the time.
This kid’s no loafer.
