Nostalgic Fear

OK, another fear post.

When I was in junior high school, I caused lots of trouble for the cheerleading/dance squads when it came time to pick our uniforms. The reason is because my feet were too big for the shoes that were available. I needed men's shoes and it was nearly impossible to find cute cheerleading shoes that had similar (we weren't even looking for identical) styles for both men and women. (I guess surely things have improved now with the popularity of co-ed cheerleading). One year we pitifully PAINTED some white tennis shoes to look like saddle shoes! UNBELIEVEABLY UGLY!

Needless to say....it was terribly embarrassing.

And today, as I get ready for a MOMS group at church, I have a little of this nostalgic fear. We're supposed to bring our own (thankfully) black flip-flops to decorate for the summer. I have to admit that I'm VERY nervous about others seeing the size of my GIGANTIC, men's black flip-flops.

The positive thing is that hopefully I can make them real cute so that when I wear them, no one will be able to tell that they're men's!

OK, I'm off to get David and the Hud-man ready to go! They LOVE going to MOMS group because they get to hang out with their friends and play and eat snack.... I like it because it's a multi-age group so Hudson gets to enjoy playing with big kids like he's used to. Hopefully the rain won't keep their friends away.
