Time Out for, “How Two Rights Can Make a Wrong!”

Two Rights = Wrong!

I picked up Malachy from school today. When we got home, he told me he wanted to go straight to the playground. I told him we could definitely go for a little bit. As I pushed the stroller to the gates, I looked down and noticed his shoes. I was confused for a second. I said, “Malachy! Take a look at your shoes!” He looked at them and was like, “Oh.” I asked him if anyone had noticed the entire day, and he didn’t seem very sure. Maybe the kids? Definitely not Mommy and definitely not the teachers. Otherwise, someone would have let me know.
We wound up not going to the playground until later. After all, how could I let him go to the playground with two right feet?” Ai ya! πŸ˜‰ Shien laughed when I showed her the pictures. She said she had told him to put on his shoes on his own this morning. I’m thinking it must have been somewhat dark? One is SO MUCH SHINIER that the other!

Shien said she would have brought him to the playground, anyways, with those shoes on. I was like, “NO WAY!” First, what would other parents think of me as a Dad, letting him run around with two right feet? I mean, it would have been different if he wore two different shoes that actually were correctly fitted, but definitely not like that… πŸ˜‰ Then again, he we hadn’t gone to the playground, no one would have ever known about the two right shoes that were oh so wrong! πŸ™‚
