So I decided I would ask C about the shoes. I showed him the yellow ones, and he asked if there were red ones. Then he saw the teal and wanted to look at those too. Then he liked it when I showed him the stripes inside and played with the computer a little. He told me that he liked the red ones, But also the yellow. I asked him if we could make a deal and get the yellow shoes and a red sweater. He thought about it and said "I don't know about that... how about a green sweater, and a blue one for Tober."
Then we looked at sweaters online. After a while it seemed he liked playing on the computer more than he cared about which shoes he got. Then this morning as we were getting ready for church he asked me "where are my yellow shoes!?" He told me they were his favorite, probably because of the fun we had looking.
I think we will get the yellow shoes, and then maybe take him out shopping for a sweater, whatever one he wants, if he cares at all. My boys are so good at indulging my want to dress them up. :)
