I guess in retrospect, there were clues. Warning signs that it was coming to this.
Over the past weekend, I officially diagnosed Eldyn with “shoeremovitis.” A terribly irritating disease that causes Eldyn’s shoes and socks to be removed (by him) without any attention to context.
- No regard for posted signs saying “No Shoes No Service.”
- No desire to protect one’s own feet from dirt, dampness, wetness or even snow.
- Absolutely no concern for appropriateness. Once, when Eldyn was leading the four of us out the door to begin our day, he plopped himself down and began to remove his shoes — his cute little bottom still inside the house, his feet outside on the deck. It was such a sudden decision that it took some effort to keep the rest of his forward-moving family from falling down on top of him in a jumbled heap.
