But he is all cowboy once again thanks to a REAL cowboy shirt from Auntie Beth, a $3.00 wannabe hat and a pair of boots sent all the way from Alaska.
No matter that they are size 3 and he wears size 11/12.
No matter that the toes actually bend UP when he goes up stairs and such.
He refused to put anything else on (that's my boy!) and I could HARDLY say no to him since he has been waiting so long for boots.
But I feared for his life as he ran in them.
So, I started saving up my church-cleaning money and went and bought shoes (brace yourselves) FULL price for once in my life. NO $3.00 marked down, end of the year clearance Target shoes THIS time.
He got his new boots this past week and I secretly grabbed the size 3's, washed em up and tucked them aside for when THIS new pair wears out or when he fits into size 3...which ever comes first.
