big girl : ridiculous footwear

I distinctly remember being little (maybe 4 or 5) at JCPenny and my parents wanting to buy me a pair of Smurf bedroom shoes. (You remember the kind...the ones with the big Smurf head on the toe) I also remember throwing a tantrum in the middle of the shoe department because I wanted some big girl slippers, not baby ones.

Fast forward 25 years to what I wear around the house at night.


I don't understand either.

Haha. I've been thinking about drawing my 'bed socks' (don't actually wear them in bed, of course)for a little while. This made me chuckle. They look prety similar, except mine don't have...er...faces!

LOL...I have monkey slippers with goofy grins on them. I don't think you ever outgrow that stuff, although you're all about being a big girl when you're little. My mom used to say we were younger than we were at restaurants so we could get in for the cheaper prices. I would become indignant and loudly proclaim that I was NOT 5 years old, I was 6! She almost killed me a couple of times for that kind of stuff.

These are cute! I once had Donald Ducks slippers, but they were so huge that I could never judge where my foot is on the staircase, resulting in many a bruise on my legs! Now I stick to boring slip-ons..
