I think I just sent Elli to school in Jesi's shoes...


  1. Ok Dad! Now you just don't worry about it! Those kids are loved and well fed and you've done your job. Now get to work!
    I have to tell you that wearing someone else's shoes in our house is a punishment! I home school everyone but my kindergarteners because I think I'd drive myself to drink if I tried teaching someone to read. And as you know with a big family everyone must have it together in the morning. There are school shoes for the 5-year-olds. They are supposed to be put away in the shoe cubbies after school and be there in the morning when it's time to put them on. When this doesn't happen screaming and yelling does nothing to fix it. SOOOOOOO my rule is that if Margaret can't find her pretty girl shoes she has to wear ugly brown boy shoes and if Joseph can't find his cool Star Wars slip ons he has to wear some girls shoes with little flowers on them. This has happen to each child only once. Somehow the school shoes are always magically locatable in the morning! :)


    1. Brilliant! I wonder if I could get my high schoolers to do it. ;)

  2. I don't think this is so terrible....but you may wany to apologize to Jesi before she finds out on her own. My younger sister and I are similar in size and have been for a long time. If it was an accident and she said she was sorry before i found out on my own, we did a lot better than if i was left to discover it on my own.

  3. As long as Jesi didn't go barefoot all should be fine! :)

  4. Dude - I've never had a morning like that - not once...I.am.not.worthy!!

    Oh - and on shoes - we have a rule: "If they fit they are yours" - life's simpler like that - and with your crew - simple is good!

    And the world knows they are loved....that's the best part bro!

    love you guys - aus and co.

  5. Love that rule! If they fit they are yours. Perfect for us!!!

  6. At least she had on underwear! Found out my 9 year old has been going au natural to school lately in the spirit of "it's just easier to take off my pjs and put on pants. Who's got time to put on underwear? And no one looks in my pants anyway!" Boys!!!
