Crazy Shoe Day…

…well, okay, morning.

Elena over at Mommy is in time out! had an idea that hit me smack in the face when I read it.


The premise is this:

Make a point to have some crazy mommy fun with the kids.

You see? I find myself forgetting to have fun with my boys sometimes. I get so wrapped up in the day and getting through it that I forget to actually enjoy the day. Laugh with my boys. Be crazy with them. Create memories.  This is something I continuously work on.

This morning opportunity knocked & I went with it. We were headed to the store and Sweetie Pie could only find one tennis shoe. The next thing I knew he had a flip flop on the other socked foot. My first inclination was to make him change shoes—you know to matching ones—but instead I went with it. He went to the store in his crazy shoes. And he loved it!


And then when we got home we all had crazy shoe day. I only wish I would have thought to change Boogaboo’s and my shoes to crazy shoes before going to the store.


What are some crazy mommy things you have done with your kids to have fun?


  1. What a cute idea. I don't know if I could leave the house with different shoes but I try to spend time telling crazy jokes with my kids. They love it.

  2. That is so cute! I've always said if my babe wants to wear his halloween costume everyday for a month after halloween, or wear a cowboy outfit, or a cape, whatever, to the store, I'm game! I love crazy shoe day, I'll have to remember it!
