When Eli unties his shoes to take them off, he really does the job. You can imagine my frustration when I am frantically preparing the three children to leave the house, because I am usually running late, and I find that I have to relace his shoes in addition to tying them.
Another reason to love Crocs or to stick with velcro. Also another parenting lesson I am apparently still learning. It always takes longer than you think it will to get out that door.
