Yet Another Good Reason To Have Hubby Around....

... He's excellent at getting Sweetie to properly test out her new snow boots.

Her boots are a 1/2 size smaller than her shoes she's currently wearing (which she sometimes complains are too tight). Yet, the boots seemed to look properly sized when held up against the bottom of Sweetie's foot. So a thorough wearing/testing would be in order to make certain all was good.

I put them on her and tried (unsuccessfully) to instruct her to push her foot all the way down to the bottom. But that just resulted in her wobbly walking to the other room, then running back to me - sans boots. I tried to ask her if everything felt all good and comfy with the boots on. But, let's face it, I don't know what I'm talking about when it comes to footwear and comfort and fit. Which basically meant that I couldn't determine if any squeezie-ness she complained about was really a problem or just the way it should be.

Enter Hubby, who knew how to put the boots on correctly and was able to help Sweetie determine if the aforementioned squeezie-ness she felt was on her legs (a good thing because it meant no snow would get inside) or on her feet (a bad thing, meaning the boots were in fact too small). Then he was able to engage her in a follow-the-leader game around our downstairs in which he made her jump, twist and silly walk all crazy.

By the time they made it back to the kitchen, Sweetie happily determined that her boots fit just fine.

Yay! Now - if only we could get more than a dusting of snow to play in.
