Flip. Flop. Fall.
Ahhh, the warmth of the sun. We are loving being outdoors in our shorts and t-shirts... and Abby Kate's new sandals, of course. She was very confused about the strap-between-the-toes thing at first. I stood her up after putting them on and she remained there staring down at her toes. I asked her if she wanted to play outside - which usually gets her running for the front door - and she didn't move an inch. She stood there frozen as if I had taken away all mobility with this pink, polka-dotted form of foot torture. After a few increasingly confident steps, she was running again. Until she fell. Then we had another first - an adhesive bandage for her scraped and bleeding knee. And then we learned a new word. We heard "boo-boo" for the rest of the day. I like putting AK in her little shorts, but now I feel guilty because I know her jeans would have prevented her scraped knees.
