Isn't it interesting how most children seem to have a special comfort item...something tangible that they just can't live without? Ever since Ruby was born, she immediately became attached to her binky, which still today, remains her constant. But it seems like every week or so, she becomes attached to something new...from baby dolls to blankies, and everything in between. And, apart from her binky, this particular "item of the week", seems to be the only thing that will bring a smile during her most grief-stricken moments.
This week it's flip flops, which she affectionately refers to as her "fweep fwops". She's always had an interest in our shoes, and more particularly, our flip flops, so when we were at Old Navy, and she spotted some in her very own size (actually just a couple sizes too big)...she, well, didn't hide the the fact that she really, really wanted them. We bought her two pairs (since they were 2 for $5), which she has worn alternately for going on two weeks now. It just makes me laugh to think that she could actually love these things enough to want to wear them to bed - not to mention...
in the shower.
Look closely and you'll notice that she's holding another very important comfort item in her left hand.
