This past Saturday, we took the children shoe shopping. OUCH! I think we made the salespeople very, very happy. Anyway, among the boxes of shoes we bought, each child came home with a pair of tennis shoes. I came to this realization: none of my children can tie shoes. Not one of them. Should I be concerned? When did your children learn to tie their shoes? I know I was much younger than Patricia!
Patricia & Benjamin are going to have to learn because their shoes have strings and I'm not tying them. While it would probably be good for Matthias & Jonathan to learn, that will have to wait because their shoes have Velcro... except for one pair of Sunday shoes. But who has time to teach their child to tie their shoes on Sunday morning as your rush... ah, I mean prepare, for church???
UPDATE 8/18/09: Patricia and Benjamin can now tie their shoes. :) Been too lazy to teach anyone else. Yep, lazy. It happens!
