Yesterday while shopping at WalMart, we went to the shoe department. There were racks and racks of brightly colored flip flops and for only $2 a pair! What fun! I told the younger three boys they could pick out a pair for their summer play shoes. Tim picked out a bright blue pair, Addan a dark green pair. I held up a pair of royal blue ones and said, "How about these, Titus?"
Titus has a very strong personality. He knows WHAT he likes and doesn't like! He said, "No, I like those!" and pointed to a bright purple pair. Oh great,,how to deal with this one :) "Purple?" I asked. "Yes, Mom, it's my favorite color!" he said. I asked, "Isn't it a girl's color?" With a cute grin and knowing look, Titus said, "No! It's MY favorite color!" Guess he thought since it's HIS favorite color and he's NOT a girl,, it can't be a girl color! So we compromised. I said, "I'll buy you those purple ones to wear and play around the house but these blue ones you have to wear out in public."
He just looked at me like I was weird and said, "Ok." Guess he thought it was great to get two pairs out of the deal :)
This is how he left the table this morning,,, so cute!
