Little Boy Cousin (aged 2)

Lovely Sister-in-Law
Have you been jumping in puddles?
LBC looks shifty
Which shoes are you wearing?
LBC looks down at feet
Are they your Wellies?
LBC shakes head
Or are they your Posh Shoes?
LBC is silent
Look very carefully.
LBC is silent
Wellies or Posh Shoes?

LBC says in a teeny, tiny whisper

Posh Shoes

And MrsM tries very, very hard not to laugh.

  1. Such utter sweetness. There is a huge smile on my face, a chuckle in my throat, and a smallish, but increasingly rhythmical beating of my heart in time to a joyousness of your post.

  7. So funny - when it's not your child or not your shoes! Isn't life wonderful when you are only responsible for your own shoes? I have finally found an advantage to being older.

  8. A year or two on and the response would have been a plaintive "But there were puddles!"

    At age two, isn't there a law that says puddles MUST be jumped in?

  11. One of life's tender moments. Puddle jumpers of the world unite - we need more fun and laughter.

  13. Just love how the velcro is crossed on one shoe and straight on the other - the boy is obviously a closet odd sock wearer in the making

  16. I bet the puddle was worth the scolding. Posh shoes look happily lived in.
