On his feet again

In our last post we found mom humble, weak and feeling defeated... It might get worse...

The freaking shoes broke!!!!! Yes, the shoes I finally found after my desperate shopping search (see last post) bit the dust before I picked him up from school.

I am Mom. Hear me be seriously annoyed.

"I'm sorry I caused so much trouble, Mom," Jack says on the way out of school.

"You're not trouble. It's just the way things go sometimes." I couldn't help but let the frustration seep out. "I thought I was doing something really great for you."

"You did do something really great. Thank you."

I am Mom. Hear my heart swell with love and pride.

Today, Jack is wearing the newest, whitest pair of Chuck Taylor's available.
