Off on a recent walk, on our way out of the door I decided that Boo’s brown sandals (£1.49 charity shop George at Asda bargain!) completed his outfit better than any of his other shoes. It wasn’t particularly warm out (quelle surprise!), so I put a pair of socks on him first, to which Darren let out a gasp of horror and proceeded to try and wrestle our son’s shoes off me. “No! No! No!” he insisted. “But, it isn’t warm enough for him to wear just his sandals”, I retorted “and besides, he’s only little, it’s cute!”. “Socks and sandals are NEVER ‘cute’!” Darren hissed.
He eventually gave up the fight, but wanted to make it clear that it wouldn’t be allowed in Daddy’s school of fashion.
I would like to state at this point that I don’t condone the general wearing of socks and sandals and I’m not even sure where the cut-off point is, in terms of age. Surely, though, Boo can get away with it whilst he’s still a toddler? Am I wrong?
