My littlest girl is a bit of an Enigma.
On the one hand she is gentle and affectionate.
On the other she is fiesty and fierce.
She loves to play ‘babies’ with her sisters, and jump on her brothers back.
She is the epitome of feminine beauty and yet a tom boy at the same time.
She hates to be dirty, but she loves muddy puddles.
She also loves shoes.
But really, who doesn’t?
I’m sure its built into the female DNA somewhere; offer to take a girl shoe shopping and she will never refuse. And if she does there is something very, very wrong with her.
Likewise, if you offer a woman free shoes. Who will turn those down?
Definitely not me.
So when I was offered the opportunity to review some shoes, not only did I of course email a hearty reply with haste, I also text a whole bunch of people to let them know about the awesome giveaway I just scored.
Yes that is right, I said giveaway.
But we will get to that.
First I need to tell you a story.
Once upon a time, there was a little girl with a dream; a dream to own a pair of jelly sandals.
She was not from a fortunate family. Her father had died, and her only sister had down syndrome, so things were tough. Her mother did her best, and she did well, but the budget did not extend to luxury items.
It wasn’t long, however, until the girls birthday came around. When asked by her mother, what it was she would like, her answer was clear; a pair of jelly sandals.
The day of her birthday dawned bright and clear, and the girl welcomed her two friends over to celebrate. She had exciting news; her mother was taking them to the shop to buy jelly sandals.
That girl was my one of my best child hood friends. I distinctly remember the day we went shopping for her jelly sandals, and the absolute joy she showed when wearing them.
The pair that I received for Ava differed in style and colour, but the sentiment was the same. In fact I think my friends reaction actually paled into insignificance when compared with Ava’s delight when the post man arrived.
I have to say, I’m impressed too. Not only are they super duper ‘bitty’ (pretty), but the plastic is really soft and flexible, which I prefer for tiny feet.
Plus the fact that they are plastic means it doesn’t bother me when she goes stomping through muddy puddles with them on.
And now the exciting bit.
The very kind people at Jelly Beans have agreed to give not one, not two, but three lucky diaryofasahm readers, their very own pair of jelly sandals! Which means that your kids can happily run through puddles too, or perhaps yourself if you so desire, as Jelly Beans also come in adult sizes. (I was very tempted to get them for myself, but Ava needed them more than me 🙁 )
All you need do is visit Jelly Beans, and tell me in the comment section who would wear the Jelly Beans in your house.
