Not Cool Enough, Mom.

I used to be able to buy clothes and things for my kids just because I thought it was cute.  Not any more.  Now things need to be "cool".

I bought some plain grey slip-on shoes for my 3-year-old at Target.  He has loved similar shoes in past years, so I figured he'd like these ones.  But no.  He refused to wear them because they were not cool.  I convinced him to let me buy them by promising to paint piratey things on them.


I couldn't use my usual freezer-paper-stencil method for fabric painting, so I cut out the shape I wanted, held it in place, and traced around it with a pen.  Then I used my smallest paint brush and filled it in.




I think he likes them.
