Cool Boots for Kids

This time of year is always tough for me. It’s now when I need to pry the Crocs of my toddler’s feet and replace them with boots.

Not an easy task in my house. My son, Jake, not only wears his Crocs to school EVERY day, he also wears them to bed. Yes, he sleeps with them on his feet every night under the covers. I wish I was kidding. He practically wears them in the bathtub. He LOVES his Crocs.

But it snowed yesterday here in Denver which meant the dreaded “talk”. It went something like this:

Me: “Honey, we need to wear boots today because there’s snow outside.”
Jake: “No.”
Me: “But Honey…”
Jake: “No.”
Me: “I’ll buy you a new Thomas the Train toy”
Jake: “No”

This went on for about 30 minutes.

Finally, I pulled out a bribe he couldn’t resist, the boots went on and out the door we went.

But as I wedged his feet into last year’s boots, it occurred to me that it was time to buy him a new pair. The kids at preschool have such cute boots this year. I see adorable rainboots, snowboots, hiking boots, all doning some cute design on them.

So I started the search for new boots today. My requirements are they need to be easy to slip on and off, warm and affordable.

Here are several that I found to be quite irresistable.
