Well, after resigning myself to the fact that Genevieve just could not walk properly in her Uggs, I decided to give it one more shot. I had not attempted to put them on Genevieve for weeks, but then I saw another little girl walking just fine in her Uggs. So I got them out again for a second try. When I could not get Genevieve’s little foot to sit properly in the boot I knew something was wrong. So I stuck my hand inside and lo and behold there was the problem- a little pink sock stuffed into the toe of the shoe! I checked the other boot and yes, there was a sock in that shoe too! Once we took the extra socks out the shoes fit fine and Genevieve can walk in them with no problem!! (I don’t think that the ankle support is great though…) All Winter long… and I didn’t realize it…. Needless to say, I felt pretty dumb. Don’t worry, she has worn them every day since! Haha…
Today was a beautiful, sunny day. I think Genevieve needed her sunglasses as she lounged in her beach chair!
We were having a grand old time relaxing in the backyard with Pop Pop… until Genevieve decided to take a dive into the cactus plant! Well, it was more like a little stumble. She didn’t cry, so I thought that everything was OK. Still I took her inside to wash her hands and check to see that she was not hurt. I didn’t see anything so we went back out to enjoy some more sunshine.
Well, thank God for the sunshine because it was in that glorious light that I noticed tiny red prickly things all over Genevieve’s hands. They were so small that I missed them inside. I got out as many as I could from Genevieve’s hands but then she kept touching her leg. When I lifted up her pants I saw little red marks all around Genevieve’s knee, where she had fallen. The little red prickly things had gone through her pants! I got all of those out as well… Poor Genevieve! Those things stick to everything. All afternoon I kept finding them on me too. They even went through my jeans!
On the bright side, if that had not happened, I never would have captured this cuteness!
