The Boy Needs New Shoes

Among the numerous things we've needed to pay and get over the past few months to get caught up on life, just found out today that my 14 year old needs new shoes. His favorite slip on pair that he's had for quite a while has finally met their death and have a big hole in the sole of the heel. And ironically I found a pair he'd love that are Nightmare Before Christmas Shoes, but $60 is a bit steep, don't you think?

And it's not that he needs new shoes. I bought him a pair for boxing at the beginning of the summer, but their not slip on shoes and he absolutely refuses to wear them for school, so what's a mom to do? Sigh Maybe I will put them on his Christmas Wish List, otherwise this Insane Writer isn't going to be able to afford them.
