Crisis Averted.

I Just want to say that I am writing this at 6am EST and have been up for 1 hour and 15 minutes. I have worked out, chugged water, and after I post this - I will go shower and get dressed. All before sunrise. For a "non-morning person" - that's pretty good.

Yesterday J cubed came to my abode for some splash time at the pool. Jill for some, unkown, crazy reason - bought Joey a pair of Crocs.

Yesterday my son fell in love. Not with Joey you sickos - they're cousins! With those durn crocs.

For those who don't know this - I abhor them. I love that schools, hospitals (namely the one I work at) and other establishments are starting to restrict their usage. I hate crocs.

Braxton was dying for a pair yesterday. (probably still is - but he's asleep, so he can't do much about it.) Kieran also wanted a pair. Mostly because he could put them on and take them off all by himself. In a moment of weakness I told the boys "maybe we can get you a pair, we'll ask your dad."

All the way up until we picked up Mark the boys thought they were getting crocs. Mark asked if Braxton is allowed to wear crocs to school. After informing him that, no, he is not - My wonderful, loving, glorious husband put the cabosh on the croc situation.

How come they (schools and hospitals) are restricting their use? I wear the nice kind (look like regular flats, not the clogs) to teach and they SAVE my feet!

The hospital that I work at is making the workers phase them out because studies are showing that they aren't as sanitary as a regular shoe is - and the static electricity that stores up in them can injure patients or short equipment. The reasons B-rox's school won't allow them is they're unsafe on playgrounds. They say that they fall off too often, and allow "foreign objects" to get into them.

I think it's hilarious you hate them so much. They may not be the cutest shoes, but they are VERY convenient for kids to put on themselves. Then again, they're unconvenient because they can take them off themselves as well. :)
I'll take crocs over character shoes any day.
