When disposable shoes are invented, Shea will have been the inspiration. It doesn't matter where the shoes were last night, because at least one of them will be missing this morning. Such was the case this morning, and the drama ensued. Waking up to a household of kids in various stages of readiness is frantic enough, but when Shea's shoes are missing, the house hits drama level red.

After I told her that she would have to wear her sister's shoes(which are 1/2 size larger than her own) to school, her gift of theatre came out. After the tears, which are just a given with a Shea-Shoe-Crisis, I was treated to the most pathetic, gut-wrenching, hilarious perforance I've seen to date from her.

These evil shoes were 'wiggly', according to her description between tears. When I checked to make sure they weren't too big, they seemed to fit her better than they even fit her older sister. What I hadn't accounted for was the evil spell some witch doctor in the Congo must have placed on the wiggly shoes. For now, Shea could neither walk nor stand. I'd help her up, and she'd slink back to the carpet. When I finally stood her up, she walked with her arms leaning on any wall or solid surface, balancing like a toddler taking her first steps. A first grade Frankenstein had been created in my evil lab (also called the shoe closet). I unleashed my monster onto the world by driving her to the neighbors' before school. Excited to see her friend, she hopped out of the car, skipped halfway up the lawn before remembering she was supposed to be in character, and slowly monster stepped to the front door with her arms reaching in front of her. Frankenshea was back, so first graders beware. Vats of hot tar and torches will be available in the cafeteria.
