Alternatively titled: Stomp; New Shoes; The Bereket Shuffle; Singing in the Rain.

Boys love new shoes too (thanks Grandma!), especially ones that clatter loudly on wood floors. I got to get these boys some tap shoes (anybody know where I can get little tiny pairs?). Incidentally, mama's a fine tapper too. Oh, if you're wondering, that's Sira in the diaper and of course Tsega's the one with all the hair (which leaves Bereket in red).

And apparently Tsega has been watching too much American Idol (well, maybe too many of the wacky audition episodes).

Oh you have to get those boys tap shoes. Figs is smitten with the noisy shoes at school, but they are WAY too big for her skinny feet and subsequently end up occasionally flying at heads. I went hunting for a small pair and found a pair on the first try at a second hand store. They even have ties so I can skip the helmet. I am guessing EBay may be able to help you out.

3 pairs of toddler tap shoes (+)
3 toddler helmets (+)
2 adult helmets (+)
1 box of earplugs (+)
1 bottle of wine (=)
1 very happy family

I love your blog! I love it, love it, love it.

Quick question- what are your plans with all those darling boy clothes? I know someone who would love to have them one day ;-) (oh yes, while I'm mostly joking over here, there is a tinge of seriousness to that comment)

Thanks, Cindy, for always sharing so much of your lives with us. I have always been drawn to how in love you are with your crew- you are one fantastic mother!! (and I'm not brown-nosing you either- I really mean it!)

Ahhh, MP, that is for sure a recipe for happy family. I'd love to see Fig's tapping skills! I could even teach her a step or two!

And Courtney, if you send me your address and have a little guy that needs cute clothes, I'd be happy to share whatever comes out of the outgrown pipeline. Seriously!:)
