A Tale of Two Christmas Slippers

Friday, December 09, 2005


I can be an impulse shopper. And it does me no good. Take the irresistible Santa slippers for the babe. On sale, yet still over-priced. But they will serve a function and be cute as a bonus; his little feet will stay warm and cosie. Gotta take a photo of those (even though they clash with the turquoise pants:).













But wait, what's this? What happened to one of the slippers? Where did it go?










Oh, there it is, in his hand, then in the mouth, poor teething babe. He grimaces at their furry taste and looks at me...
"No good, for nothin', mum".















So I turn my back and then look and oh, what's this. Where did the other one go?....









"I threw it away."











Next time I look back, the slippers are scatterd along with the babe. Hey, how'd you get over there? Seems like the babe has now become mobile. I should have bought myself some new shoes. Sigh....

    Those slippers are FANTASTIC!!!

    (even though they will spend most of their time scattered around under furniture)

    I tell you...those babies have no appreciation for fine footwear. =).

  1. Blogger Heidi said:

    I feel like buying myself a pair of slippers now and I never wear slippers..lol

    Have a great weekend Cathy.

    I knooooowwwww.

    Lois;
    Running shoes. But I want new dress shoes.

    MissB;
    Scattered under the furniture, is right. And for that I spent good money.

    Anhoni;
    I tell you, the nerve...

    Heidi;
    If I could knit I'd make you a pair! I will try and have a good weekend. You too.

    Put them on while he's sleeping, in order to enjoy the cuteness for the greatest amount of time.

    LOL- too cute. :)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Stephanie;
    Oh, you are sooo clever! How is your weather? Our rain has just turned to snow, but very wet snow.

    Vani;
    Maybe I can mail them to you for your babe next year; than I would feel like the money was better spent.

    Oh how CUUUTE! Nah, the slippers were a great purchase, even if just for the pictures, LOL!

    Great post.

    he looks like Santa's little helper!
    and he has started practising his yoga positions too.
    in greece we call little babies like that zouzounia, which means something like cute little bugs.

    Your baby is just a darling. The slippers are gorgeous ... at least you got a few photos, to see how great they look. A permanent reminder, even if they never stay on the feet again !! Have a great weekend.

    Someone need to teach your babe the value of thermal socks. There are people whose feet are freezing off right now, me included!

    iPod cases...mobile phone warmers...socks for teddy bears...
    hats for bats... ;)

  1. Blogger Connie and Rob said:

    Maybe he thinks he is just suppose to wear them on Christmas. That's it he didn't want to get them dirty. He is saving them for Christmas eve when Santa comes. That little guy is so smart!

    MomyBlogR;
    We think alike:)

    Chloe;
    Zouzou for short! I love it, I called him that tonight. It sounds like the noise a bug would make.

    Meow;
    He thinks he's a darling, too:) My weekend has been odd, to say the least. I will post more soon. Hope yours is going well.

    Erikku;
    No kidding; good footwear gone to waste.

    fb;
    You're right and I'm to blame. Shame shame ;)

    Coniie;
    That's right, smart babe.
    btw; I went to Linen N' Things and scored numerous Christmas gifts for family members; thanks for the recommendation.
