Correctly tied shoe Incorrectly tied shoe
Tonight was a banner night. My Molly (7 years and 2 months old) finally learned to tie her shoes tonight. THANK GOD! I know, I know...that's way too old for learning how to tie her shoes.

You see, Molly has one heck of a temper, and any time someone tried to help her, she got mad. So, I finally bucked the system and MADE her do it. We only yelled at each other 3 times. Hooray! We haven't had Velcro shoes in our house for about a year now, but tying her shoes has gotten old. It takes her a mighty long time to tie, but it's worth the wait.

ps, pictures from here...and go there if you want to learn more interesting facts about shoe lacing and tying!

We are still YEARS away from tying our shoes over here. My 6yo daughter might catch on sometime in the next six months or so, but my 7yo son -- forget it.

Congratulations. It really is mommy's accomplishment, too!

i checked out the shoe lacing site. wow! who knew there were so many ways to tie a shoe. or that so many cared if your shoe was not tied or laced a certain way. for me as long as no one is tripping on the lace its a done deal.
