My daughter has requested a pair of striped sneakers for her next birthday. She mentioned it about 2 days after her birthday last summer and it’s come up about once an hour ever since. So, being the amazingly stupendous mother/zoo-wrangler that I am, I have been searching for a pair of striped toddler sneakers. And searching. And searching. And searching. Apparently, I’ve got the only toddler in the world who wants striped sneakers.
My daughter is very clear…she needs:
- striped sneakers
- with velcro
- that are pink
- and she doesn’t want to trip in them
If I were a lawyer who billed hourly, I’d be able to retire after this case. But I’m not and after about 4 hours of searching through hundreds of ugly sneakers last night I gave up. The requirements had defeated me. So I bought these Pumas. I’m just praying Gucci doesn’t come out with a pink sneaker in the meantime because in terms of stripes, they’ve got the market snatched-up.
