Q. What's better than girl shoes and even mom shoes?
A. Doll shoes.
Maggie began riffling through some boxes of my old toys that I had stored in her closet (thinking she'd enjoy them when she's older). What did she discover but my stash of doll clothes. She came running into me while I was nursing and said, "Shoes!!" She had her fists full of little shoes. She sat down and tried cramming them on her Barney Rubble feet, but to no avail. I burped the boys, stowed them in their bouncers, and showed Maggie who the shoes were for. She squealed in delight and has been shoeing her babies ever since.
