New shoes for my crew. The girls were crazy about Sketchers Twinkle Toes. They weren’t my first choice. They girls begged and pleaded and I gave in. Even though these shoes light up so much with each step they remind me of Times Square. At least I’ll always see them coming!
I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t crazy about a pair of shoes. When Addison saw the shoes Kenny bought she said “Dad! You can’t wear those! You’ll look like a teenager! Like Troy on High School Musical! People will think you’re my brother instead of my dad!”
Ha ha! What she doesn’t know is that Kenny and I are teenagers. Our kids keep getting older, but we haven’t aged a bit.

That is too funny. I refuse to grow up. My daughter is always saying we are like sisters. I shop in her closet and she shops in mine!
I love the shoes. They are all so cute. I have to say that Kole’s are simply adorable!!
I think Kenny’s shoes are cool! However, I think your hair is to pretty., even with our humidity. I’d say no on the perm…lol. ;)
Thanks Cathy! I think I’ll be the same way with my girls! I love their new school clothes and would totally wear some of them if they fit me!
Ok – no to the perm. You convinced me! Wasn’t too hard, was it!? ;)
Erin, I just wanted to thank you! Yesterday I went through all your organization posts for your daughters room/closet/toys and got my butt into gear and organized my daughters’ room/closet/toys!!! Thanks for the motivation!!!
I love Kole’s shoes (I’m a boy mom) so where did you get those? I’ve noticed we both love Circo boy stuff too. :)
That is a great picture of the two of you! My husband and I also started dating as teenagers, and that was 34 years ago, wow! We still feel like teenagers, too (mentally, certainly not physically-haha)
Oh Erin, this post brightened my day!
Too funny! ( =
I have been secretly following your blog for about a year now. (Shhh…) My 8 yr old daughter has seen your page a few times and likes to read the post about your girls. Anyway, she just walked up behind me as I was looking at your page and asked if you had “two sons”! I don’t know… maybe the kids are seeing something different when they look at the shoes! LOL! Wanted to share that. (Love you, by the way!!!)
Thanks everyone! :)
Nadia – YEA! So happy for you! It feels so good, doesn’t it!? I’m tackling one of my kids’ closets today. They get messy so fast!
April – I bought all of our shoes at Nordstroms this year. I loved those little Vans for Kole too! And yes – we love Target clothes! Circo has the cutest stuff for little ones.
Tondra – SO funny! I just read your comment to Kenny before he left for work and we were both laughing. Maybe he needs to return those shoes. ;) Thanks for your sweet words about my blog. So nice to “meet” you!
Erin, my husband has shoes like that. We are teenagers too!
I just told my husband the other day as we watched two retirement aged ladies boogie board at the beach…”I think everyone is just a teenager living in whatever aged body they have.” It’s funny to read someone else stating (almost) the same thing.
That is so funny! I love the shoes but then again I guess I am old as well:)
Every once in a while my daughter will ask me if I am really going to wear somethng…really is it not in style or what???
I love your blog and look forward to reading your new posts each morning.
Thats so cute ! I met my husband in 4th grade LOL.
We didn’t date till we were 20 though. I always tell my daughter ( who is going into 5th grade) that she could end up marrying a boy in her grade ! She still thinks boys have cooties , so she doesn’t wanna hear that lol.
My kids often remind me when they think I am too old for something lol… ( Im 40, so I guess to them I am ancient! )
haha – wow, you and Kenny have quite a past!!! Love the new shoes :)
Oh my…my husband and I have been together since I was 15, he 16, and I totally feel like we are playing house too, it kind of crazy…maybe its cause we were kids when we met, but I still feel like I am in high school.
love it! thanks for the smile. :)
Hilarious. Love this post. And really, no on the perm? But it would be so rad!
K – your comments are hilarious! They are totally making my day. :)
LOVE IT!!! Addie is SO hilarious! I love the things that come out your girls mouths and love when you blog about them so I can get a good laugh! You two would be the perfect Troy and Gabriella, for sure! I always love seeing the high school pics of you guys!
Very fun blog! Love your photography and cute shoes :)
I LOVE that picture of you two! Hilarious!
it’s so funny, we were at Ikea on Saturday and we saw a little girl with those Skechers and my two little girls just FELL.IN.LOVE with them (we’d never seen them before)
so the fact that a couple of days later a picture of them pops up in my feed, well, I’m taking that as a sign ;o)
Not sure if we can get them in Australia but I’ll start looking!
Do you have my same reoccurring nightmare that you are sleeping with your boyfriend? Serious. I wake up and think..oh yeah…we ARE married, whew! (After 26 years… and I’m still sleeping with my boyfriend:)
Omg! My daughter asked for those Skechers shoes too! They were available in so many different shades of crazy colors. Finally I gave in to the light pink Skechers.
I love reading your posts. It never fail to make me smile. Keep it going :)
