I went to a consignment sale the other day with my cousin, Leitte. While there, I saw a little pair of shoes in Daniel’s size, and I simply couldn’t resist spending the $8 for them. The main reason I had to have them for Daniel: they are mini replicas to his Daddy’s shoe. I know Daniel will only temporarily wear the size, but with baby #2 being a boy as well, we will certainly get good use from them. As for Daddy, this is approximately his 3rd pair of these exact New Balances, so I know that he will continue to wear them for a while as well, even if it is not the specifically pictured pair. If you have ever tried to buy these NB 992, you know they are expensive, running about $120 retail. I, however, am not going to pay that much for them, so I keep my eyes on the look out for a good deal. One day I was in a second-hand discount shoe store and I found Thomas’s current pair, in perfect condition, on sale for 11 bucks. That’s right, only a ten and a one dollar bill. I am sure your thoughts are just like mine were: What the heck is wrong with them? Turns out one was a size 11 while the other was a size 11 1/2. Upon consulting the hubby, he informed me that the slight size difference was minimal, and he would never notice the variation, which has turned out to be true. So, all in all, there is less than 20 bucks invested in the shoes below, but, as corny as it sounds, it truly is priceless to see these matching shoes for the two most important men in my life. It is beyond cute! Perhaps now I will need to keep my eyes open for a 3rd very tiny pair for when baby Wesley offically enters my world!
And kudos to Thomas’s sweet camera, for I just sat these shoes in the floor, admist the evening sunlight, and snapped a shot. I think his camera could even make poop look pretty.
