Such tiny feet!

Usually I will find Vivianne’s boots flush against the door, smack dab in the middle of it, making it impossible to open the door without moving them.

Vivi's boots
Q: Why does she put them there?

A: Well, one day I told her to take her boots off and put them by the door, like Thomas and I do with our shoes/boots. So she takes off her boots and disappears for a second and then I hear, “Mommy, Mommy!” She’s beckoning me to come look. I get up and go over there to find that she had listened and had put her boots by the door, literally. She was so proud of herself that I didn’t have the heart to explain and show her what I meant, so I just let it go. Now, that’s her spot. The most inconvenient spot in the entire entryway. So when she’s not looking I will slide them over to where I would like them to be. Maybe she will catch on one day…
