All-Star Kids

A demanding nine-year old, two teenagers and a menopausal mom have emotions running a little wild in our house, these days, as the back-to-school jitters set in. Lately, it seems someone is always mad at somebody, but there's nothing like the promise of new shoes to make everybody get along for a spell.
"What do you think?"

"Do I look like a star?"

Hollywood getting smart.

"Sob. I can't find the shoes I'm looking for."

"Those ones, near your head?'
"Oh, ya, those ones. Thanks, Mom." 


And, with our shoes tucked safely under our arms, the shoe shop magic wears off and the camaraderie disintegrates.

Oh well, it was nice while it lasted!
