Fetish, much?

As we were driving down into town tonight, Jimmy asked if I had buckled Kaitlin's seat belt.
"Of course I buckled her seat belt! Did you not see the letter she wrote to me? You know the one that says, 'you are the greatest mom'?"
And then I recollected a time long ago when I was a new mother...

Kaitlin was still a small baby in a rear facing car seat. I had taken a fabulous trip with her to the mall. After many purchases we headed back to the car for a long drive home. I was thrilled by the recent purchases made, but most of all a tiny pair of the cutest shoes I have ever seen! Upon returning to the car, I ripped the plastic ring holding the shoes together with my teeth and put those adorable shoes on my adorable daughter. The result was stunning! Was it really possible to have two of the most beautiful things in the world in California, never mind my car? Happy with my triumph, I merrily drove home. When I got into the back seat to release my little diva, I realized the distraction of gorgeous shoes had made me neglect to strap my own daughter into her car seat! Hmmm... they were really nice shoes...
What's a post about shoes without some eye candy? And no, these are not the shoes I put on my baby... I'm pretty sure they don't make Louboutin's in child's sizes.
p.s.- I have written 11 posts about shoes and counting

I would say "good thing you didn't get in an accident" but I think just as bad would have been a sharp turn. She might have gone rolling and gotten the shoes all dirtied up!

Yeah, I did that with Jacob once too but it was not such a long drive. There were no new shoes involved though and I'm sure the thing that distracted me was just getting him IN the seat. I think I closed the door to put something in the front while making sure he didn't fall out in the meantime. There you have it. I forgot all about buckling him in. That happened when Katie lived in those apartments off Solano Rd. Thank goodness he can do his own seatbelt these days!
