This is my daughter's shoe collection:
She's outgrown the first row (three pairs are missing to her baby cousin), she's working on the second row and the rest have been gifts for when her tiny little feet eventually grow big enough. (Her feet are tiny. She can't even wear shoes marked for 9-12 months yet. She's barely in a size 3.)
All this for a child who has spent most of the summer barefoot, only putting on shoes when we go out in public.
Anyone who knows me, knows she gets this honestly.
