If the Shoe Fits

June 4th, 2012

One side effect of pregnancy is swollen feet. Due to every ligament in your body relaxing and preparing to birth watermelon-sized humans, it’s not uncommon for women to go up a shoe size. Even though I was armed with this knowledge, imagine my surprise when one morning, while attempting to wear my cutest, reddest, kittenest heeled pumps, I find that my fat pregnant foot is barely willing to squeeze into my favorite foot adornment.

I panic.

I have Hobbit feet.

I scour my closet wondering what to try on next. Flats? Flip-flops? Sneakers? What kicks are appropriate in this situation?! I’mGoingToBeLateForWorkAndMyFeetAreRidiculous. There is no way I can last a full work day in shoes that feel two sizes too small.

Sadly and slowly, I peel off my fashionable patent leather footwear. Rejected. Stripped of my girly-ness. How long until I’m in orthopedic shoes and mom jeans? It’s in that moment of despair I look down longingly at my shoe and realize – IT’S ON THE WRONG DAMN FOOT.

Eat your heart out, Cinderella.
