Today is National Rotten Sneaker Day.

WHOOPEE! EVERY day at my house is Rotten Sneaker Day…and it’s not just the boys, mind you…the girls contribute their share too.

We have the best time with the youngest – when she was a baby and I would change her diaper, I would grab her feet, put them to my nose and say “Pee-You!” When she was really young, she would smile…as she got a little bit older, she would giggle…and a little bit older, she would let out a huge guffaw! Now, she is forever taking her socks and shoes off (she comes by that honestly – I love walking around in my bare feet too), she lays down on her back and sticks her feet in the air…”Smell my feet mama!”

What does this lovely little anecdote have to do with Rotten Sneaker Day? She has REALLY SMELLY FEET! No doubt due to her REALLY SMELLY SNEAKERS!

So, as a tribute to this lovely holiday, I will take all of the yucky sneakers in our house and put them in the washing machine. If that doesn’t help – I will have to resort to throwing them away in the trash …I couldn’t subject anyone else to the nasty hand-me-downs.

THIS is what happens when you have a 3-yr old in the same house with a 9 and 11-yr old…

A couple of months ago I was shopping in Costco with my mom-in-law and Little Livvie. We walked down one aisle past a trash can and it opened up by itself. COOL! We sat and looked at it (and played with it) for a few minutes…it was stainless steel and around $40. It was JUST what I needed since the older kids had broken the other stainless steel trash can that cost me $70 about 6 months before.

This is the coolest trash can – it has a sensor (an “eye”) that knows when you are approaching and want to throw something away.

We got the trash can home, put the batteries in and began to test. When the older kids came home from school, Livvie just had to show them this new invention that was going to change our world. In fact, we became the talk of the neighborhood with this trash can. We realized that most times when the taller people just walk by, the can opened up. (Side note – my Little Livvie loves to dance around the room to music and shake her BOOTIE.) She began walking up to the trash can, turning around and shaking her bootie. Being 3, she’s a little short to reach the sensor, so we would wave our hand in front of it and she thought she was opening up the trash can by herself.

One evening, a couple of nights after purchasing, our neighbor came over to check out what all of the buzz was about. We had to show her this wonderful new addition to our lives. As she was walking out the door…Livvie in all of her 3-yr old wisdom said “Hey Carla, look, it’s the Bootie-Shakin’ Trash Can.”
