Walking in Style Now!

For the next six weeks my middle child will be stuck in what they call Series Casts.  It's the same casting they would use if you broke a bone but in her case it is to help her stretch out her tendons to reduce toe walking.  They will change the position of her ankles every two weeks and recast three times. 

This will probably be the longest six weeks of her life being stuck in these casts.  Thankfully now a days there is color selection, her first pick was pink and white (which glows in the dark!).  She's adapting to walking and getting around in them quickly.  When doing so she needs to wear those moon shoe looking boots which are quite well...Blah! 

So I decided it would be fun to spice them up a little bit!  I went to my local craft store and voila!  This is what she's sporting now!



Her confidence boosted automatically! I used iron ons and fabric paint.  I hope this helps speed up her six weeks.  She's wearing them more and trying to get around more than before.  Girls need a little BAM sometimes! 

So next time your child (hope you won't have to but..) is stuck in cast boots spice them up! Have fun with it, the casts aren't they only thing you can personalize.

  1. Happy SITS Day to you! (I realize I am a bit ahead of schedule) I love that you made these her own and a lot more fun. No one wants to be tied down, but at least it's not summer time. Hopefully the next 6 weeks will pass by quickly for your little one. All the best!
