Because if it's not MatchboxcarsfootballshockeysticksNintendoDSs I'm tripping over, it's SHOES. They're everywhere. And I suspect they breed and multiply in the dark of the night. Kinda like fruit flies.
Here, see for yourself:
Exhibit A: Garage (an array of sneakers, cleats, workboots and winter boots)
Exhibit B: Bin of summer shoes (flip-flops and sandals) to be stored for the winter
Exhibit C: Cubby at the back door with school sneakers and cleats and Crocs
Exhibit D: Oh look! MORE summer shoes that were NEVER EVEN WORN this season. This box was under Baby's bed.
Exhibit E: Ummm...a random smattering of sneakers, cleats, workboots, dress shoes...This box was under Middle's bed.
Exhibit F: Hubby's side of our shared closet
Exhibit H: Heh. You actually thought the picture before this was all the shoes I had?!
Someone please reassure me that we're not the only Trenches being overrun by a profusion of footwear!
