There is something about baby shoes that brings a huge smile to my face. The shoes are so small but filled with so much promise. It seems like an incredible symbolism when connected to the life of a child. I recently went to my best friends baby shower and she is having a baby boy in the coming months. She received an abundance of gifts to set her and her husband up for the early months. I do not have kids so I was a little out of my element on what to get my friend. I knew she would already get some of the essentials like diapers, wipes, onesies, and soft blankets.
I decided to do what i do and get her sone shoes. I know he wont be walking for a while but I didn’t want to stop that from allowing him to be dressed in style on day one. Well ok maybe not day one but you get the point. Being at my friends baby shower conjured up unexpected emotions for me. It was cray to think my best friend was about to have her own little human to care for and love. While I am single and the thought of the daily responsibility seems a bit intense, she is happy, and I am happy for her. I hope one day to have a family and a child of my own, but in the meantime my parent friends can rely on my for periodic baby sitting and stylish kids shoes. 🙂
