I went sandal shopping for our trip to Florida.
When I came home with them, Max was not happy. He couldn't understand why he only got one pair of sandals, but Ella got three. I tried to explain to him that of course Ella needed three pairs...she's a girl!...brown ones for her earth-toned outfits, white ones for the rest of her outfits, and these adorable multicolor ones...well, just because they were adorable. He didn't quite think that my explanation was sufficient. In case his first pair causes blisters (from past experience), I actually ended up buying him a 2nd pair, ones that flash, like his sister's. And yet, he had to point out that Ella still had three and he only had two.
Cameron on the other hand was elated when I told him that I bought him sandals. His response, and I am quoting him here, "YES! Now I can bite my toenails with my shoes on!"
