I had a huge momma fail moment on Sunday, but I refused to let it ruin our wonderful weekend away! Okay, it wasn't that big of a fail that it could possibly ruin our weekend...but it sure as hell was an embarrassing one!
It's no secret that my kid has fat feet, no really, they are like bricks. And finding shoes for these fat feet has been a topic on here a time a two. Jackson's feet are so fat that I can't just go to a store and pick up a pair of shoes. I've yet to find a local place that carries shoes in extra wide in his size. I have to search, and hunt, and beg for shoes that are wide enough for said
So, on our way home from New Orleans we passed an outlet mall outside of Baton Rouge. I remembered this mall having a Stride Rite, so I asked Mr. to stop so we could at least have them measure Jackson's shoe size. I've been returning and exchanging shoes since Christmas trying to find the right size and width combination.
Let's just say that we walked into the store with size 6 extra wide shoes on foot, and left with size 8.5 extra wide on foot. My poor boy had been wearing shoes not one, but TWO AND A HALF sizes too small! Needless to say, Jackson got a couple pairs of new shoes that day and the size 6's were packed away as soon as we got home.
I'd say that was a momma fail moment in my book...and it sure was to the saleslady helping us out!
At the rate Jackson's foot is growing, his footprint is going to be mistaken for Big Foot's soon:)
