Baby Loves Her Shoes

The other day I took Ava to the beach.  She loves the water and especially the sand.  We splashed around, dug holes in the sand, and smiled – a lot!

On our way back to the Jeep, we stopped at the playground so Ava could run around and swing [and hopefully dry off and ditch some of the sand].  When it was time to go, she didn’t want to leave [big surprise] and started to throw quite the tantrum.  She did that thing where she arched her back and let her legs go limp when I tried to pick her up, and I dropped one of the bags I was hauling.  When I put her down to pick up the tote, she took off running for the slide.  I caught her and started walking to the car.  She was sobbing and kept trying to say something, but I couldn’t understand.  I thought she was having a worse than normal reaction to leaving, but maybe she was just tired.  I still couldn’t figure out what it was she was yelling, and then she took a deep breath, looked at me through her teary eyes and said, “shoe, mommy”.  I looked down at her feet and saw one of her shoes was missing.  It must have fallen off when she went for the slide.  As soon as I acknowledged it and headed back to pick it up, the tears stopped and she was all happy-go-lucky again.  Baby loves her shoes.

The Shoes.
