Sparkly shoes, matching your eyes. A click of the heels, and you can go anywhere. Just believe, you say, and you can fly. Magic, and possibilities.
Sparkly shoes and a ballerina skirt, and suddenly you are on stage, the crowd of parents and siblings clapping in adulation.
Sparkly shoes, a fancy dress, and a crown. A princess with your Daddy at your side, the King of your heart.
Sparkly shoes that Mommy has to remove from your feet, long after you’ve finally fallen asleep.
Oh, if we could all be four years old again. Just for a moment.
