When you find out you’re expecting twins, so many thoughts run through your head. How will we cope? What happens when they cry at the same time? How will I feed two babies at once?
The questions are endless and as soon as you’ve discovered the answer to one, another swiftly replaces it.
But one thing that didn’t cross my mind — upon being told I was carrying two babies — was:
‘Crikey. Baby shoes are mighty expensive and we’re going to have to buy two pairs at a time!’
Nope. That thought came last year when they began walking! And funnily enough, that was quickly followed by:
‘Well at least they’re boys. Boy’s are not as interested in shoes as girls are they?’
Oh my. How wrong was I?
My littles absolutely LOVE shoes. My shoes, their daddy’s shoes, shoes in shops, shoes in pictures — they are just obsessed. Shoes are a wonderful source of interest for them.
Twins Trust Discount
We went to our local Clarks shoe shop to have the boys’ feet measured for the first time — again mucho excitement for this activity.
We chose a lovely chocolate and yellow pair for Cosmo and a cherry red pair of sandals for Bertie.
The Twins Trust Discount really came in handy — we’re able to have 10% off when we show the Twins Trust e-card, (either on a device or printed) at the till.
Needless to say, my boys were pretty happy when they opened the boxes.
I filmed them and it was so sweet to see their reaction! Shame about the black lines at the side of the film; in my haste to capture this moment for posterity I forgot to turn my phone to landscape — doh.
Live and learn…
These shoes are going to have quite a lot of wear and tear as the summer rolls out.
Lots of adventures to be had.
