It’s Not All Mary Poppins

It’s supposed to be an answer…

“Mary, can you put my slipper back on?”

Hmm… They’re supposed to leave them on precisely because they can’t put them back on themselves.

“I can, but why is it off? You know you’re supposed to leave your slippers on.”

“Yes, but Emily needed to kiss my foot.”

  1. And before anyone says it… No, he did not have a bo-bo on his foot. It did not need kissing better.

  2. With such a good reason I’m sure you didn’t hesitate dropping everything and returning the slipper to the foot!

    These are the answers that make your job the best!

  3. I think I like this best because I don’t know why. It allows for such lovely images that way.

  4. If they’re capable of saying that, they should be capable of putting their own slippers on. Otherwise, I think you should get some different slippers.

    You’d think so, but nope. These are ROBeeZ, and one of the many great things about Robeez is they don’t slip off as so many slippers do. Of course, the corresponding disadvantage is they don’t go on easily, either. Well, I can put them on with no difficulty, but it’s beyond the fine motor control of many toddlers. In fact, though I’ve finally taught all but one to get them OFF themselves (so they can help get themselves ready to go out), only two, the four-year-old and an unusually co-ordinated 2-yo, can put them on.

    Also, given that Robeez cost in the order of $30/pair, I do not purchase them. Their parents do, and leave a pair at my home. (I don’t require that particular brand, either; they’re just popular amongst my clientele.)
