Shoe-livery Boy

We’re not one of those houses that requires people to take off their shoes when they come in. But I’m the only one who keeps shoes on. And every so often, the piles of shoes start to drive me crazy.

So I ask Little Brother to pick up the shoes and deliver them to the bedrooms. And he fights me long and loud–you’d think I asked him to climb the stairs on his knees and deliver the shoes one by one. Tonight he decided he’d be lazy resourceful and deliver them all in one trip. “Layering” helps when you do a job this way. It might be hard to tell from the picture, but he’s wearing his own school shoes, Big Brother’s flip-flops, and TheDad’s flip-flops on his feet.
