PLAE shoes from GoPLAE.com are personal favorites of my youngest, and I reviewed PLAE shoes earlier this year.

So convinced, in fact, than when an ultrasound confirmed the opposite, my wife asked the tech, “Are you sure? Can you check again?” I wasn’t disappointed or sad. I just wanted our baby to be healthy. In my mind, though, all the snapshots of our child were framed in pink instead of blue and I found myself needing to imagine an entirely different kid. A different kid from some other… read more
