"What is she doing?" I asked myself as I stared at my daughter this morning. She was brushing her teeth, standing in the hall outside of her bathroom, mouth full of toothpaste, her free hand pointing furiously toward my feet as if she were in the throes of a synchronized swimming routine.
There was no mistaking that she was trying to communicate an important bit of information to me. It's just that the series of complex, almost liturgical-dance-esque gestures were throwing me a little. I finally decided that she had either choreographed a charades symphony entitled "Those Boots Were Made For Walkin,'" or my feet had burst into flames and she was trying to alert me.
"My boots," she said, her finger still flailing toward my feet, ". . . . you're wearing them . . . AGAIN?"
"Yes. Were you gonna wear 'em?" I said.
"No, but Mama, its been 5 days straight - how 'bout a shoe change?!"
"What can I say - "I have a crush on 'em. They make my toes feel like 10 friends on a camping trip!" I said." (I totally swiped that line from Sandra Bullock's character in All About Steve!)
Here's where it gets kinda serendipi-licious! After taking she and her brother to school and plopping down in front of the computer to catch up on emails and read some blogs, I found that I had a message from Alicia from Whoogaboots out of Australia. She wanted me to know that everyone in every country could win a pair of their boots. And all it takes is 2 simple steps found here. Or, you can just click on the Whoogaboot badge to the right.
Good luck to everyone!
