Tying a Shoelace

Okay, I thought potty training would be the hardest thing I'd have to teach my kids... until I tried teaching Samuel how to tie a shoe!! This is not as easy as I had hoped it would be. Are there any tricks or good ideas on how to master this skill? Mom, when did I learn how to tie my shoes?

I seem to remember some little trick about bunny ears, but you had better ask your sisters because they are probably the ones who taught you how to tie your shoes.

I was a pretty normal child....but I could not tie my shoes until 4th grade! My mom would tie my shoes really tight before I left for school and I always had one friend that knew my "secret" and she would tie my shoes in the bathroom if I needed help! Very sad! Too bad we didn't have velcro back then! It doesn't look like Cameron will be potty trained before the baby arrives. So I will be buying three sizes of diapers. Fun!

Maybe I'll wait on the shoe tying, then. You know how it is when you hear other 4 year olds are tying their shoes... I always feel like my kids must be "behind" in their developmental skills. But, I guess that is bound to happen when your kids decide to walk at almost 1.5 years old!!
