My 6 year old likes to put them on and play school. She pretends she is the teacher and (not so nicely) makes her little sister be the student. I think she likes them because when she zips them up they actually stay on her feet. I really hope that's why she likes them.
I have a few questions/concerns regarding these boots:
Why does she always choose these when playing school?
Does she think that this is what all teachers wear? I was a teacher and I did wear them sometimes. But I have plenty of other shoes that she could choose from that would be more "sensible teacher shoes".
Should I be concerned that she is drawn to this particular style of shoe?
I mean, the one pair are some serious whorish (is that a word?) boots. The have an excessively pointy toe and very thin, high heels. I bought them years ago and have worn them maybe a handful of times. And when I did wear them, I wore them under a pair of jeans because I didn't have the balls to wear them with a dress or skirt. The other pair is acceptable...they have a boxy toe shape and the heels are not too high.
Are these boots still even in style?
I don't get out much and I really don't wear knee high black boots with a 3 inch heel around the house. I know riding boots are in..and I REALLY want a pair of them. But I am not so sure about the ones I just found. I forgot that I even had this particular pair. And now I am wishing that I could forget about them. I could donate them. But then I ask, why do we donate things that are not in style or old or just plain ugly?
But should I be wearing higher heels?
Maybe I should wear higher heels. This would add a little to my height and then I might be able to convince myself and my Weight Watchers leader that I am 5'7" instead of 5'4". That way I could pick a higher weight as my goal and I would move out of the OVERWEIGHT category. But the overweight category is fine for me right now...when I started WW, I was in the OBESE category. Are they f-ing kidding me with that? Apparently they were not. I was obese for my height and weight. Whatever. (More about that coming soon...I know you can hardly wait).
BUT if I had a few inches on me (via the high heeled whore boots), I could reach an acceptable goal weight all that much sooner. That would be fantastic.
Man, I can tell you that I didn't expect an old pair of black boots to bring out so many questions and uncertainties inside of me. Who would have thought?
But I think I will be getting rid of these boots today. The sooner the better.
Reason #1 to ditch the boots...
