Preschool teachers see their fair share of young fashions, let me tell you! I saw expensive clothes, hand-me-down clothes, matched outfits and outfits I knew only a child could put together. I zipped hundreds of parkas, buckled oodles of snowpants overalls, slipped on innumerous boots! But, what I loved were those cute rubber boots that the kids would don on rainy days. I said to them, "I love your boots!!! I wish I had a pair! If only they would make them in my size!!"
Well, this past weekend when we were in Galena, I came upon a shop with adult sized boots shown off outside the entrance to the store. Not only shown, but on SALE. I halted my group,nearly hyperventillating...I had to try them on! Could they? Would they?
