When, oh when, will Pip’s feet reach their full size?
Four months into the soccer season and he has grown out of his practically new boots.
When he started having to stand up and stomp his foot into his boots, and when they started to rub his toes and heels until they were bright red I realised that something must be done. My initial solution to the weekly blisters was to put bandaids into his soccer bag. (I am a good mother, you see…)
Eventually it became obvious that nothing more could be done.
So this morning my Pete took him to the sports shop to purchase bigger boots.
The others will be added to the growing pile of shoes that are too small.
Unless you want them…
Edited to add: Pip scored a goal in the first game he ever played in his new boots. Perhaps the too-tight boots had been holding him back all this time. Sigh…
