Dear Jodi,

I do believe that if you got this child cowboy boots for Christmas… then I could have mine back. But then you’ll have to buy three other pairs for the rest of the brood. And then they’ll clomp all over your hardwood floors in them. And, if my one pair was any indication, they’ll have a penchant for clomping each other over the head with them, as well. So, up to you.

But I think that smile makes it worth it.
