Truth Tuesday #7 - If The Shoe Fits, Wear It

Truth Tuesday is blog posts regarding my 
Murphy's Laws of childcare.

#6 Parents will buy their children new shoes and they will NOT let the child wear them over a weekend first to see if there are any issues. They will send them to school in them the next day. They will not bring a broken-in comfortable pair in case of problems. There will be problems. Blisters, abrasions, the child refusing to wear them, etc. WILL happen. Every time. Seriously.  
 This is today. It looked much worse yesterday. Yesterday she was screaming hysterically, "Get my shoe off! Get my shoe off!" by the time she decided she just couldn't take it any more. She hadn't mentioned anything up until that point, because she liked showing off her new shoes. Different shoes today, but we're still going barefoot to let it heal.
