Posts Tagged ‘failing mom award’
…I didn’t even think about my son’s cleats being a size 13. Today he showed me his foot & his big toes are bruising because his shoes are so small. Also one of his toes was digging into the other toe & he had dried blood under his very short toe nail as well as dried streams running down his leg. I can’t believe it got that bad. I definitely win the mother failure award. Causing my child to bleed & feel terrible pain? Yep, mother failure award here I come.
This week the kids are doing a soccer camp & both of them are absolutely loving it. Except for the whole shoes being too small for the foot thing. I really didn’t think about it. I feel terrible but I’m sure he feels worse. We’ve joked & kidded about how tall he’s getting but I never thought about how hard it is to find certain things. The only good part is that shorts won’t be too short for a long time (i’m sincerely hoping!) & I can find tall men’s shirts @ Sears.
Oh & I promptly got online (& then called) Zappos to find soccer cleats. Luckily they did have them & the really nice customer service rep I spoke w/ helped me order plus he made me a vip member (this includes free overnight shipping – YES!) & hopefully we’ll get the new cleats tomorrow afternoon although I’m not holding my breath. (I really do live in the boondocks)
