‘Mummy?” the Noisy Boy enquires.
“Yes, what is it dear?” I reply.
“Why do the roofs smell so bad on this street?”
My son has always had an oversensitivity to noise, bad smells and visually ugly things. When he was a baby he would vibrate with happiness in my arms when a bus or motorbike growled past us. He can smell something rotting three streets away. “Mummy, something has died somewhere” he mutters darkly.
He is getting to the age where his conversations are deeply profound fuelled no doubt by his obsession with war movies.
His visual sense is and always has been keen. “Mum” he will tell me, sweeping an arm theatrically from my face to my feet “I like what you are doing here‘.
So it’s not surprising that for quite some time now he has been the official Law and Shoes blog photographer. My husband doesn’t get a look in.
He suggested this pose and the flower in my hair. “That’s it Mummy, you look pretty! Smile!!”
The boy was very, very keen on these Amanda Starr stilettos.
So am I – I have the leopard print Amanda Starrs, the plasticine flower Amanda Starrs and the Amanda Starr Purple Boots. I am a bona fide Huge Amanda Starr Fan. So although I wondered when I saw these on eBay what on earth I would wear them with, I found the faith and let my son decide for me.
He has a good eye. “I love these shoes Mummy” he tells me frequently. Who can resist such enthusiasm?
And the choice from the Minx?
“Mummy, it’s time to walk to pre-school. Here are your shoes“.
It’s a 50 minute walk. I can suffer for my children though.
