Update on the Pink Sandal Saga

OK, so I caved to pressure!! 😀

After several hours of sustained nagging from Ricky yesterday, and a further meltdown upon discussion of me buying him blue sandals, I decided that life was too short and bought him a pair of pre-authorised pink sandals.

They are about as butch as I could find. Previously, I found a grey pair with a little pink on them. These were rejected by my gorgeous son on the basis that “they weren’t very sparkly”! Ian and I could not contain our mirth when he said this and I had to turn away so he couldn’t see me laughing.

I think the little love wants Lelli Kelli shoes (the ones with the grotesque advertisments with a bunch of six year olds wearing so much make up that they look like they’re in drag), as he keeps going on about sparkly bits!

Hopefully, what I have bought will be something of a compromise. My search for a cheap pair of Timberland sandals, size 10.5, blue, continues!

    They aren’t too bad but, I may have vetoed the pinkness in this house.

    Yeah, I figure that we can try and keep the pink ones for the house… **rolls eyes**

    I think that’s a great compromise!

    Once he dirties them up the pink will look more like a dull red and you can take them out in public 😛

    I’m sure pink sandles will lose their sparkle and he’ll be obsessed about something else…
