She's 10. TEN.

My husband visited the local thrift store to look for a table that he could refurbish for our daughter's room. According to her, she can no longer function in this world without a little vanity of some sort where she can sit and polish her nails.

While at the thrift store, my 10-year-old browsed the shoe section. She brought up a pair of boots to her dad and asked if he would buy them for her. "Sure!" he said. "Throw 'em in the cart."

In case you're wondering why I fell to the floor in a fit of vapors when they arrived home and my little girl showed me her purchase . . . those heels aren't one inch tall . . . not two inches tall . . . not three inches tall . . . those heels are THREE and ONE-HALF inches tall.



Dinner last night: spinach and cheese ravioli with marinara sauce

Wow, 10! We're only 2 years away from that, and it scares me to death.

Ay carumba! They're cute, but ay carumba!

I think I should make it very clear that under no circumstances is she allowed to wear them! No, No, NO!

My daughters mastered the dress up shoes with heels at age two. They would LOVE the boots your daughter picked out.

Even IF you let her wear them, she'd outgrow them in a couple of months...

At least she has good taste - those are adorable!

They grow up fast. I am 51 and don't have shoes that high. They are really cute though. Good luck.
