The price we pay for beauty...

I know I have mentioned Bianca's obsession for accessories.  It has only gotten worse.  If there is a purse, scarf, or pair of shoes within reach, she will sport it.  She brings me her shoes first thing in the morning to put on, and I usually have to pry them off her screaming, rigid body at night.  No exageration there.  Take away this girls' shoes or purse and be ready for a tantrum like you have NEVER seen before.

So, I buy her these darling black patent leather shoes for her christmas dress.  When I pull them out of the box, she literally starts shaking.  Her little fists balled up, and her face turned red as she ran towards me with pure excitement.

And they didn't fit. 

Gulp.

I knew I was in trouble.

She refused to let me take them off, and I wasn't in the mood for a fight (so of course I grabbed my camera to document the fiasco).  Look at her chubster feet bulging out of those shoes...poor girl.


She proceeded to wear the shoes for about 30 minutes, in complete pain.  She was walking around sobbing, and limping, but refused to let the discomfort get in the way of those black, shiny beauties. 

If she could talk, I think she would have been saying something like "Maybe mom, if I don't bend my legs while I walk, it won't hurt so much."



"Wait, that's NOT helping...come on mom, why does it have to hurt so bad to be beautiful"


"I can't. take. another. step.  Please, help me!"


"Ahhh, there's the ticket.  If I don't walk, it does't hurt...then I can wear them ALL day long.  Phew, glad I figured that out."


It's okay Bianca, we all sacrifice for that perfect pair of shoes...

Oh my gosh Jill, I am cracking up! She is so cute, you're going to be in big trouble when she's a teenager! I felt the same way last weekend wearing my peep toe pumps at Tadd's work Christmas party. I almost needed to be carried to the car.

Beauty is pain and pain is beauty... right Bianca?

Haha! Oh that cracks me up! We've all been there too.

Her faces! I love it.

Lisa said...

Jill you are hilarious! I love the commentary. Man, they start at such a young age! Oh boy...

Jessie said...

Jill, best laugh I have had in a LONG time! I was shaking the bed I was laughing so hard, that Grant had to get in on the action and read this post! We were dying!

Girls and boys must be SO different. I can't for the life of me get shoes on Crew without a fight, and you try putting a hat on him or something...FORGET IT!

ps. I feel Bianca's pain....I swear I have gone through similar situations a time or two in my life.

haha, everytime I wear something that kills I seriously think to myself "Beauty is pain". Poor thing! This is HILARIOUS though. I'm so glad we have blogs so she can see this when she is older and know that it's just apart of her nature to buy things wonderful things.

That totally cracks me up!

HEY! I totally want to put an advertisement for your ETSY shop on my new blog. It is launching tomorrow! YAY!

Can you send me a "button" or picture that is 185 pixels wide? I tried to copy your header in ETSY, but it comes out to small to read!

If you need help with it let me know! I can make buttons in NO TIME, if you don't have one. Just shoot me an email asap!

We'll miss you at our 11th annual Dec. 32rd! All of my fingers are crossed that you'll be here (permanently!) next year. Hope you have a great Christmas.
