My son came home from school yesterday raving about some new light up shoes that all of the kids were talking about. He went on and on about how he just had to have a pair. I had never heard about these new shoes and must admit that I was very intrigued. David has a birthday coming up next month and this just might be the perfect birthday gift for him. I’ll have to do a little research first.
After David went to bed this evening I pulled out my laptop and started a little bit of research on these shoes he wants so badly. I was quite surprised that they weren’t overly priced like I assumed they would be. They were actually quite affordable. There were several different styles to choose from. I didn’t think he would like the high top shoes but had no choice because the low top light up shoes were sold out. Next, I had to decide on a color. He’s been going through a Johnny Cash stage to where he wants to wear all black so I chose the black ones. I placed my order and just had to wait for them to be delivered. They arrived three days later in perfect condition. Now I had to hide them until the big day.
David kept hinting that he wanted those shoes and I played it off like I couldn’t afford them. I hated seeing the disappointment on his face but knew how happy he would be when he opened them on his birthday. The day of his birthday party finally arrived. We had a small party with some family and friends. It was time for him to blow out the candles on his cake and then open presents. I gave him my gift first. The look of surprise on his face was priceless when he realized that I got him the shoes he was wishing for.
