LOL well daycare wants DS to start wearing shoes because when he wears sock the floor is too slippery for him and its too cold for him to go barefoot. Made sense to me. So I buy him shoes and put them on him. He immediatly sits down and stares at you like well great now I can't move.... LMAO I know I just need to keep putting them on him and he will get used to it but it's so cute the way he sits there!

My son did that at first...it's funny. Once he realized he COULD still walk, he loved them.

Get some of those skidders. That's what I did for dd because she is not a shoe person. I don't even let my preschoolers wear shoes. We all have slippers in the classroom.

I'd do the skidders then. Dd liked those. When she started 3s preschool she was taking her shoes off. Well I didnt like her having nothing on her feet in case of a fire drill (which one time she did have to spa fire drill in socks on wet ground :(). So we got skidders so she felt like she had socks on but the bottoms were protected. Worked great. Daycare should be comfy. A homelike environment away from home. I do not think children should have to wear shoes all day while trying to grow learn and play.

Lemme see... The store here that has them isn't in your area. It's like a regional chain.



Target online has them so you could call and see if they have them
In stock in store. They're like $13 there. Some are online only though and some are out of stock. But u never know in store.



Otherwise they're like $20 on skidders website. But u have to pay shipping :( then there's always like amazon and eBay and such.
