(ha. obviously that title is not exactly true because I am mom, hear me roar-type about my kids every day of my mom-life.)
The other day I was sitting at a stoplight when I caught my reflection in the side of a windowed building and I almost laughed because I know that I drive a minivan but I guess I've never thought about the fact that I drive a minivan. I didn't care when we took the plunge into stereotypeville and if we're ever lucky enough to have enough kids to necessitate something like this ... bring it. I'd happily drive a whip like that. BUT I still refuse to tote a huge diaper bag around even if it is meant to not look like a diaper bag. We all have our things. Oh ... and I have one more! I have to admit that it took me a long time to come around to the idea of mom-friendly footwear. If you ever see me wearing sporty sandals please try to pull my fake face off because surely someone has just fashioned a Grace-face mask over their head. I was also pretty opposed to Birkenstocks until I read Natalie's convincing post on the matter yesterday. And never had I ever thought I'd be a clog lover but then I saw this picture on the Sartorialist and my mom gave me an old pair of her clogs and I've never looked back. I don't love wearing flats unless they are boots which is ridiculous - I know!! But the clog fits the bill for me and my idiosyncrasies on so many levels.
Dansko is constantly coming out with gorgeous new twists on an old classic and I would totally rock the professional clog all over town but I really love these ........ because they are heely and are really comfortable. Simon and I took the kids on a walk around a big park the other night ... hills, gravel, clouds of gnats and all and I wore my clogs and was perfectly fine. Simon is a fast walker and I didn't have to beg him to slow down one single time. And Julia loves them because she thinks they are for tap dancing. I do not know where on earth she learned about tap dancing but .... tappity tap tap tap. Cool toddler mom at your service.
Want a chance to win a pair? Winner's choice! Dansko is being kind and generous and giving away a pair to one of you fine readers. I hope you win and love your hooves as much as I do.
