Tut Tut, It Looks Like Rain!

This picture of Tot, the son of VW atOne Happy Dog Speaks, reminded me of Bones. (She has the most beautiful boys. The picture of him in his new shoes is priceless.) In the comments, Oddybobo said how they don’t wear shoes in their home, Korean tradition, so her son carries his. Someone else commented on how their son was into cowboy boots… and it… reminded me of a story. (Surprise.) About Bones. (Bigger Surprise.)

When Son#1 was small, he was given a pair of yellow galoshes. He never wore them. Son#2 came alone, never wore them. But then Bones came… and that kid wore those yellow rubber boots EVERYWHERE. With his floppy blonde hair and big blue eyes, he was the cutest 3 year old (he had to be… it’s the only thing that saved him, pain in the neck that he was), but with his little yellow rain boots, he garnered the nickname, ‘Christopher Robin’ wherever we went.

No matter where we were or who we saw, invariably I would hear a woman’s voice say quietly, “Tut tut, it looks like rain!” It was so funny. Looking at him, everyone was on the same wave length.

And he loved those boots when it rained. Every puddle he could find got stomped in. The day he outgrew them, however, I was not too remorseful. They were the foulest smelling things we had in the house and that’s saying a lot. Rubber boots and stinky feet. Blech.

And… here’s a picture of Bones at Age 3. I'm sure I've posted this one before. No pictures with his rain boots, unfortunately.
