I took Maggie shopping for a new pair of tennis shoes this afternoon. For about eight or nine months, Maggie and I have been wearing the same size shoe - size 7.5. No longer. Today she passed me up. The new Nikes we purchased for her today are 8.5. The size 8 fit perfectly, but realizing that to get any length of wear out of them, she would need some room to grow, we bought the 8.5. Yes, 7 year old daughter wears a size 8.5 shoe. I think height wise, she is likely to pass me up by the time she starts third grade. Chris has laughed and teased me about Maggie wanting to borrow my clothes and shoes. I had to laugh today as I realized she is going to be borrowing his shoes, rather than mine in the future.

Yep, my thirteen year old daugher wears a nine. Nine! She's now exactly the same height (5'6") as I am and wears a bigger shoe.

However my eight year old wears a size 12 shoe. She's still in toddler sizes!

There is NO ryhme or reason to any of this...
