My son Lambchop is my fashion muse. Why? I try different things with him and he’s so hamdsome. It brightens up my day. We have had interesting times with shoes as of late. Lambchop is a toe walker and that is a fashionable adventure in itself. Currently, we are into hightop Jordan’s, for him. He is in a kid (preschool) size 1. I think for a 6.5 year old, his feet are going to be big like mine. I wear an 11 but I am only 5 foot 5. My husband, on the other hand, wears a 12.5 -13 and he’s 5’11.
What I love and have always loved about Jordan’s for kids, is they are always on sale at Dillards. If you call or frequent there enough, the sales associates will remember you and pit some on the side for you. Lambchops school has a uniform. The uniform requirements makes it a hard dash for all back shoes. There are times when I buy two or three pairs in the school year. Why? You never know how a childs foot will grow, Lambchop has this thing about liking the same things and I find myself replicating the same shoes and clothes for this reason. Also, preparedness is key to raising kids with Autism, when it comes to clothing.
I try to maintain organization in fashion for Lambchop due to my background in educating kids with Autism. You never know what will happen so it is alway better to have more tha. enough clothes and shoes. Plus, Lambchop has a little habit of taking off his shoes and throwing them. We are and have been working on that. I keep sandles and socks in my truck due to missing or lost shoes in the past.
The moral of the story….be prepared, find shoes and clothes that fit your child’s need and if you have a budget, stay in it! You think fashion is expensive, try raising a child with autism. Plan, plan, live and blog!
