See these shoes? I would totally buy them. They’re actually on sale right now. But they’re 3 inches tall. Not good for running.
On Sunday, as we enjoyed a leisurely Father’s Day lunch at a mall food court (It was the fathers’ choice, not mine), I had to take my 2 1/2 year old to the family lounge to change his diaper. After finishing, I pushed him toward the play area so I could take a minute to wash my hands. But instead of playing, he took off!
When I turned around, he was gone and the other parents were gesturing that he’d run out. So I grab our backpack and rush out. The family lounge is halfway down this tunnel, and he had already cleared the tunnel, and ran into a neighboring jewelry store. I ended up charging down the tunnel, running through the jewelry store at least once, before I caught up to him where we’d started. Thank God I’d been wearing flat sandals that day.
So, yeah. I’m not too sure how 3-inch wedge-like heels would work for chasing down a toddler. And before I know it, I’ll be chasing down two of them.
