little girl + new shoes:
admire shoes, ask "are they pretty?"
wear them out of the store
jump over the puddle of water
walk around the lot of mud
yell yuck and run from the dog poop on the ground
little boy + new shoes:
admire shoes asks "will they make me fast?"
run with them on... right out of the store (while you are still paying)
jump IN the puddle of water
run THROUGH the lot of mud
see dog poop, stab it with a stick, yell "it stinks" and try to kick it out the way
and the shoes were purchased not even 30 minutes ago... ughh
