Is This Right?

  
This is a question I get asked at least 10 times a day.  The girls, Emma especially, change their shoes anywhere from three times a day to 5 times.  From slippers in the morning, to dress up shoes, to tennis shoes, to flip flops or sandals and back to slippers again.  They do not seem to be getting the idea of which shoe goes on which foot.  They don't put them on the wrong foot, they find me and say, "Is this right?"  Sometimes it is, but usually not.  They think that I can tell if they have it on the right foot when I am downstairs and they are upstairs.  After I hear this five times times two it becomes a question that I don't want to hear.
I have tried showing them the curve of the shoe and their foot.  I have tried telling them it buckles on the outside, the big part is where your big toe goes, etc.  I don't remember this being an issue for Kami and Meghan.  Maybe it is because I have two at a time asking. If anyone has a better solution to teach them which shoe goes on which foot, please let me know! They do have the most adorable feet and they wear the same size.

Take the Keys and Lock Her Up Sunglasses Daddy giving them a snack.  Chocolate for Meilynn and Graham Crackers for Emma.  She still will have nothing to do with chocolate.  Lucky girl!

Cute shoes!! Our girls go through 4 or 5 pairs a day too. It's hilarious.

My Maisie loves her shoes too but thankfully 99.99% of the time she gets them on the correct feet.

For helping your girls, with a permanent marker, write the letter "L" on the inside of the left shoe. Then show them how to make the letter "L" with their hands and since only the left hand "L" will match up with the shoe they'll know to keep it on that side. Good luck.

Great idea Lisa! We already have stars for Emma and hearts for Meilynn just to tell them apart. It will be easy to add the letter L. Thanks for the suggestion and I will let you know how it works. Off to find a marker to see if they get it!

Hey Vicki!
Your girls are beautiful! The Moose and Goose are about 1 size apart in shoes. This has helped Moose- because she knows to bring me the 8's.
Glad to see the cast is not slowing her down any!

What cuties! Boy, do I know what you mean. I'm constantly putting shoes away. I bought those shoes for my girls too. They're cute.
