Yesterday morning just as we were all about to file in to the car for school, Model girl announces that her school shoes are too small. great timing I am thinking and yes if i was a better mother I would have had everything ship shape, checked out and ready for the new school term - but I am clearly not living up to even my own usual standards.
Now I know that her fav black patent DM boots are also too tight and they are the only other pair of black shoes that she owns. So white trainers and a note to the teacher apologising for being a bad mother is what I opt for - along with the promise of a new pair of shoes for the following day.
The kids pile in off the school bus and after inspecting Sonny's shoes I tell him he's coming too.
We go off to Clarke's and ModelGirl gets her feet measured. She had been wearing a size 13. Newly measured she is a size 2! A size 2..... I can't quite believe it. She is 8.
Now already having one boy with huge feet I wasn't hoping for a dainty number from the other side of the room. Sonny aged 9 new size 3 1/2.
Now I don't know about the rest of you but I think that kids today have huge feet. They seem to be turning into a nation of clowns.
Then I popped over to Babyrambles site to leave my height for the chart that she is putting together and I thought why not add to what she is doing by compiling a shoes size chart too?
I am a seemingly dainty size 5... and at the rate my kids are going they will be stealing my shoes in approx 12 months!
Leave your shoe size in a comment before April 21st, I'll compile the list and also send out a surprize gift to one random reader.
Please state the obvious.... ie if you are male or female..... and shoe sizes can be in any format - as long as you state which measurement you are using.
For example... I am a UK size 5 or a euro size 38.
Please do take part - the more info the better the chart....
