Day 8: What My Shoes Did Today
November 9, 2007
I wore these shoes to go on a hay ride.
I love these shoes. They are Clarks and I bought them last year at one of Macy’s one day sales for under $20. The original price was $75. The clearance sticker is still on the inside of the shoe because it makes me THAT much more in love with them every time I see it.
Today these shoes stepped in horse poop. After Miles slipped and fell with one arm of his jacket in the horse poop. I had just finished telling the other mothers that were there that I was so not an animal loving country girl. When I went to pick him up off the ground he tried to touch me with his poop jacket arm and I stepped backward into my own horse poop.
It was disgusting. I gagged and led him by the hood of his jacket back to the bathroom to clean off. It was quite a distance away. I may have said more than once along the walk, “Mommy does love you. She just doesn’t want to TOUCH you. And NO she will not carry you.”
Once in the bathroom I realized that I had poop all over one hand.
Later on in the afternoon I realized that I had poop in my hair.
This evening sitting in my son’s gymnastics studio I realized that the poopy diaper I kept hoping a parent would change was actually my coat.
What has become of me?
