How do you tell a three-year old that the pink shoes she has been talking about for MONTHS aren't going to happen? A couple of weeks ago, D's PT told us that the shoes were back ordered. Yesterday we were told that instead of pink, she would be getting white with pink trim (and by the way, this is totally NOT D's PT's fault). I don't really mind white with pink trim but I'm not sure what Darsie will think. I guess she will like most anything better than the blue ones she is currently borrowing. It really isn't a big deal, it just seems like it when it is impossible for us to just go out and pick out any pair of shoes.

Another bit of unfairness. Special needs equipment is soooooo expensive and this kid has had his swing stolen twice now.

And since this post is such a downer of a post....we didn't go trick or treating last night. I don't know if Darsie was scared or confused by the costumes, but she wouldn't have anything to do with the chef costume that she had picked out. Total bummer.

GAH! What is wrong with people? I am so sorry for that boy and his family. And, I'm sorry for Darsie. But I do think she'll like the white with pink trim better than blue. Maybe you can decorate them?

I hated Halloween as a child, and it looks as if Eli is following in my footsteps. He wanted nothing to do with any of it, while Katherine loves all of the scary stuff, just like her dad. I'm glad you let Darsie do what she wanted to do.

Oh, that is disappointing about the shoes!
