Purchasing footwear for kids is always a great reminder of how fast kids are growing. “I can’t believe it,” we say as they tromp around in their new boots.
Well, believe it. They had these adorable little round kid boots last year, and now they have these giant monster truck-tire jobbies with velcro (bought from the OTHER side of Kiddie Kobbler).
I get all faux-traumatized (well, maybe a bit for real), then I remind myself that they sell them large so the kids can grow into them over the winter.
I also remind myself that one day, the shoe tray in the entryway will look like this
and when that day comes, their old Kiddie Kobbler boots will seem still pretty tiny after all.

I am a lifelong (award-winning!) cartoonist and mother of two delightful boys, aged 4 and 2. I like to view today's adventures in parenting as material for tomorrow's cartoon. Looking at family life through "cartoon-coloured glasses" helps me keep the all-important sense of humour required for raising kids... even for the events that don't seem so funny at the time.
