Jellies, Jams and Bigfoot Slippers

I wore jellies, and my husband sported Jams.  In 1984, that is.  What can I say?  We were keeping with the times...

Fast forward some 25 years, and our progeny's wicked cool stompin' round in his bigfoot slippers.  His shoe of choice, might I add.

You'd think he was Max, or better yet, Aks, from Where the Wild Things Are... what with his heavy foot.  Not to mention, the way he gnashes all 18 of his terrible teeth, and rolls his terrible eyes at first whisper of the word, NO.

Did I mention, the way he roars his terrible roar

Come to think of it, could it be [dum, dum, dum]... the terrible twos?

But really, it's darling.  And for the time being, I feel like the wild thing, because I could eat him up... in all his knobby knee cuteness. 

Talk to me in six months though.  I might just be wishin' he could:

sail back over a year
and in and out of weeks
and through a day
In the meantime, here's his wild rumpus in Daddy's Jams.

Before I go, did I say I love this kid?

  1. That pic with the shorts added is hilarious! Those slippers are so cute and the original version of the pic is absolutely adorable. Well, I had jellies in so many colors. They were the bomb! I think they're still struggling ot make a comeback.

  2. Cute pictures with colorful shorts.
