Jansen wears cowboy boots

So Jansen and shoes have not been friends. Jansen will run through weeds, stickers, rocks, hot asphalt, you name it and not care that his shoes are missing. This summer he stepped on a cactus and had over 100 splinters he would NOT let us pull out. (We tried holding him down, waiting til he was asleep finally a salt bath to help sooth, but we never took them out.) SO being the good mother that I am, I got online and bought some cowboy boots, so he could learn to put shoes on all-by-his-self!

Well, he screamed and would NOT even let us try them on. Jake told me "what a waste of money!" Ouch. So I kept trying. And what do you know, ONE MONTH later (I tried almost daily) Jansen let me put his boots on. SO I put him on the bus and sent him off to school where he couldn't take them off. It was SO CUTE I had to take a picture mainly b/c I didn't know if I'd ever get them on again. Well they are now a favorite part of his wardrobe, a close second to his spiderman snow boots.
This was November 18, I'm behind on my blogging I know...
