Photo Hunt: Shoes
Or rather where are the shoes? My kids have, since they were very little always wanted to take their shoes off as soon as they get into the house or into the car or in a playing situation. I like to do this too and often walk around with no shoes. My wife therefore blames me, largely, for this failure in parenting.
It was quite normal in Singapore to remove shoes before going into peoples houses. I have some great photographs of large shoe collections congregated around doorways of preschools, houses and mosques.
Of course it is also fair game to take off your shoes when you are on the trampoline. The problem is that they generally end up underneath. At our other house, it was a daily job to go out and do a shoe round up in the garden. This week I found two pairs around that area.
