An Actual Conversation: New Chucks

Pumpkin Pie wears Chuck Taylor sneakers.  If you don’t know what these are because you live under a rock, they are the classic canvas basketball shoe from back when dinosaurs ruled the land.  And they are adorable.  I don’t know why we get them for Pumpkin Pie, because his feet are so wide they look like they look like they would not be out-of-place on a duck.  But, he and Husband and I all love Chucks, so that is what I get for him.  Pumpkin Pie’s first pair was hand-me-down high-tops from Pickles and they were black.  Then he got a low-top pair and then a high-top burgundy pair he has been wearing for a while.  The burgundy pair has been getting a little snug, so he got a new pair this weekend and they have FLAMES on them!  Squeeeeeee!  I know, they are really, really awesome.

Pumpkin Pie believes that the flames on these shoes make you run faster. I don't know *where* he could have gotten that idea.

They are low tops so if I loosen the laces really well, he can put them on himself.  This is a big bonus because in addition to saving time getting ready, it amuses me:

Pumpkin Pie: Maaawwwwmmmmm…  I can’t get my shoes on!

Me (stretching out the laces and opening up the shoe):  I’ll help you, try now.

Pumpkin Pie (holding up the right shoe to his left foot):  Is this the right foot?

Me: Nope

Pumpkin Pie: (Holding up the right shoe to the right foot):  How about this one?

Me: Not that one either.

Pumpkin Pie: Oh, man.  This is really hard.

I know, there is a special place in hell for people who tease sweet little 4 year-old boys.  Bring it.
