1. Kids will always want to wear their snow boots in the dead of summer's heat. (or their dress shoes with shorts)
2. Even though it's a 50/50 shot to get the shoes on the right feet, it seems that 90% of the time they get it wrong.
3. You can have the best setup and organizing strategies but it never fails that when it's time to go, one of the shoes you need will have gone missing. This happens either through the baby trying on an older siblings shoes and "losing" them or throwing them off in the worst possible place at the worst possible time.
(case in point to this is Natalia threw her shoe out the car window the other day. Luckily we were at a gas station filling up when she did this. We all had a good laugh but I'm sure if she would have done it as we were going down the highway it wouldn't have been so funny.)
