I don't actually think there's much wrong with bare feet, but the Italians are funny about stuff like that. They are terrified of catching cold and dress for the season, not the weather. At the Bean's nursery they were starting to look at me all funny. Hinting that I should buy some pretty leather and suede slippers for him, like all the other Littles wear. I refused - they cost a fortune.
And then I found these babies at the Gap. They were reduced price. They're grippy. They're pliable. They're roomy. They're spotty and ultra-cute.
And the very best thing? The Bean loves them. Actually wants to wear them and will try to put them on himself. I'm the picture of super-smug smugness at the moment.
Mum 1 vs. Baby Universe 347.
Small things. Small triumphs.
This is not a review of The Gap's baby shoes. I bought them because I genuinely love them, and received no compensation for writing this post.
