Motherhood is stressful and sometimes we all just need a laugh. The daily weight that sits on our shoulders can make us feel drained and the need to hide in the closet. Well when my busy day gets the better of me I recharge with laughter by visiting NickMom.com it’s #Motherfunny .
One of the articles that really made me laugh out loud was the one that they describe, “What do your shoes say about you? Have you ever wondered why you wear the shoes you do? Is it taste? Is it comfort? Style? Pain? Perhaps they are on Sale? Well here’s what I think. Can you really tell a lot about a women when you look at her shoes?
These are my shoes. They are my everyday, everywhere, running errands, cleaning house, take me out to a ball game, walking on the beach wearing shoes. They show off my pedicure and most of all they are C-O-M-F-O-R-T-A-B-L-E Comfortable! I’m too old to worry about what people think about what I wear on my feet. I wear these because they fit my lifestyle. Busy!
Here’s a glimpse into the funny article at NickMom.com. Do the shoes fit you and your lifestyle?
That had to make you laugh. Well I think I’m pretty #MotherFunny too so here’s what I think about these shoes.
Louboutins Shoes- Pronounced like “Lou But On” shoes. Not this mom of 4. I remember my Grandma wearing these to go dancing. I have no idea how the hell she even balanced in them. I’d break my neck tripping over legos and matchbox cars if I wore them.
Kitten Heels: These are more my height as far as heels go, although I’m pretty sure my great grandmother had a pair of those in that pattern. Perfect for dressing like Grandma for Halloween.
Boat Shoes More like Grandpa’s golf’s shoes.
Birkenstocks- I like to think of these as Jesus shoes or perhaps they’re a fashion statement for men who want to show off their caveman toes. Yalk. Put those away.
Thong Sandals- Got toe jam? These shoes are for you. Dental floss for feet. Never liked wearing thong underwear you’ll never catch me wearing these.
Wedges- What a weird name for a shoe? Who thinks of this stuff? They don’t look anything like Potato wedges. I mean really. They look like a pair of shoes on top of a hey stack. Why don’t they call them “stacks”.
Platform Wedges- Now these would be useful around here! Not for auditioning but for reaching the high cabinets in the kitchen. Pull these out when you can’t reach the sugar bowl. Grab the sugar and fall back landing in the baking bowl, all in one motion. That’ll save time unless you count in the trip to the emergency room for breaking your ankle.
Converse- Okay so I haven’t bought shoes since 1992. I totally get it. But the really funny part is my daughter wears these today. We just bought them for her dance class performance this past April. You know what? They say fashion always makes a full circle every 10 years. Hold on to them they’ll be back in style again in 2023.
Pump- I call these Heels. These are perfect for me. I don’t break my neck, they elongate my legs and just the shoes I need for a Hot date with hubby. He see’s red and he’s ready to spend some cash. I’ll have a Margarita Please and Thank you.
Clogs- Wooden shoes. Perfect for Pinocchio but not for busy moms.
Crocs- They don’t look like they’re made with Alligator? Why are they called Crocs? People say they are comfortable. I’ve tried a pair on and they feel more like hot stuffy hard plastic. Comfortable? Ya that’s a crock. Oh now I get it!
The comments above were made to be funny. We all have our own preference in shoes but if you can’t laugh at your feet than what can you laugh it. Humor is the spice of life and without it you lead a dull and boring existence.
