We received the sweetest package from Zimmerman Shoes the other day. The boys ran with delight when they saw the delivery man shouting, "our shoes! our new shoes!" I told them that they would be coming soon and they did not forget. They felt so special to be receiving such wonderful shoes and I felt the same!
They asked to try them on immediately and I had to let them. (Shoes are hard for me. When I see perfectly clean, brand new shoes I want to keep them that way! I have to let go a little.) When I opened the package I saw three, instead of two. Two boxes were larger, perfect to fit my boy's shoes, but the other was smaller, lighter. I opened up the tiny box first, filled with curiosity. Inside I saw two, tiny baby shoes. Beautifully made and so deliciously little. I could just imagine the little toes on the little feet. I'm so thankful to be thought of so kindly and it helped remind me how excited I am to be pregnant. I AM excited, but morning sickness has been such an obstacle to my new joy. It was so nice to have a reminder.
The boys have begged to wear the shoes everyday. They proudly bring them to me and ask, "new shoes?" and then they open the tiny shoes and proudly remind me, "for baby. These are baby's shoes." Zimmerman shoes are very well made; sturdy and still so incredibly stylish. My boys are rough and love to run, and tell me the shoes are "very comfy, mommy." :)
