Shoes On Backwards

With summer here, my 5-year old son proudly puts on his own Velcro-fastening sandals. He still has some kinks to work out, however. One frenzied morning, I noticed that he had put them on the wrong feet so I alerted him to that fact by stating “Your shoes are on backwards.” And walked away to tend to my other child. When we were almost out the door, I noticed that my
son corrected the problem of backwards sandals by turning the sandals around so his toes were sticking out the back of each, which were still, incidentally, on the wrong feet.
