Do They Make Platform Shoes For Toddlers?
June 10, 2008
Because J and I both haven’t been at our jobs long enough to earn any real vacation time yet, we have decided to use a small part of our economic stimulus check to take a weekend mini-vacation to Holiday World later this month. In researching our trip, I discovered that they have many of the same type of rides as my beloved, now-defunct, Opryland, and I am thrilled that I will be able to share this with my children.
Our youngest is 2, he will be 3 in August, and is small for his age, so I mentally prepared myself to be okay with spending $40 to get myself in the door so that I could spend the day watching him frolic at Rudolph’s Reindeer Ranch. I know that as a parent you have to do those kind of things, but I want to have some fun too!
Perusing the Holiday World website, I discovered that, to ride most of the family-oriented rides, a child has to be 36″ tall. I brought out the trusty yardstick to see how my little one would measure up, and here are the results:
(picutre a toddler boy, blonde wavy hair, brown eyes, standing behind a yardstick, which comes up to the top of his head, grinning. I tried 3 times to insert said picture, and I failed to do so, 3 times. I’m giving up)
36.5″ tall, in his bare feet! Hallelujah! Looks like we won’t be needing those platform shoes afterall.
