This weekend, Miles came home from his grocery store trip with a pair of Elmo slippers. He was…excited about these.
He didn’t want to take the slippers off for bed last night, which I allowed, but he was EXTREMELY incensed to discover he couldn’t wear them to school this morning. When it was time to get his shoes on, he stepped into the room and emerged moments later with the slippers. “Elmo,” he said. It’s never a great feeling to know you have to break your kid’s heart first thing in the morning.
