My boy has done it again. His toe is so mangled, from slamming it first into a door on Wednesday and then into a chair yesterday. He cried when it happened last night (so I know that he does, in fact, feel pain), but since then he’s only asked for a Dora bandaid and “may I please not wear shoes”.
And since we don’t own any opened toed shoes, I just carried him through the mall to buy some. Yeah, I just carried my son into a shoe store barefooted.
