It’s Not You, It’s Me.

Dear High Heels,

They warned me this day would come but I have been in denial.

Wonderful, fashionable denial.

You are too fabulous for a cliche, but truly: “it isn’t you, it’s me.” More specifically, it is him.

We have had a wonderful run-skirts, suits, dresses . . . you can make even jeans and a tee-shirt instantly pretty. You are so much fun in cherry red, black patent, or chocolate brown.

I would love to say that I’ll be back, but alas, I’m not sure it is true. You cannot support an unborn infant so I doubt you will work well while carrying a toddler?

And here I thought we were forever.

I thought your superpowers would support an extra twenty pounds right up front, but the pain and imbalance I endured with you all morning forced me to walk around in nothing but nylon-clad feet all afternoon. What embarrassment!

My co-workers do not understand, for this parting is sweet sorrow, and really it had to come to this for me to bid you farewell.

So to misquote Carrie Bradshaw, “Good-bye Lover.”

See you in five to ten?



  1. Priceless…it may get even worse. I had to give mine away as even my FEET changed sizes! All well worth it…besides, excuses to buy new ones in 5-10. πŸ™‚

  2. Oh Erin you make me laugh πŸ™‚ If it helps I’m sitting bare foot at my desk after a meeting outside in the hot sun with a bunch of contractors. and I’m not even pregnant. I give you lots of credit for holding out this long!

  3. Oh, the time will come again….. After that baby comes, you’ll want to do WHATEVER to feel like your former self and not a milk machine… And a sexy outfit and high heels will be just what the doctor ordered for a night out on the town with hubby. Hang in there, girlie!

  4. I have given them up for now as well. I wore heels 2 weeks ago and my feet are still feeling it. Pregnancy does the strangest things to us!

  5. I wore my heels right up until the “end.” I remember stuffing my feet into some stilettos to go to a Christmas party and thinking, “Sometimes you have to suffer for beauty.” πŸ˜‰ You might be able to tough it out for short periods if you train your feet. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

  6. You may visit again, The visits might just be less often and and for shorter amounts of time. But as a Momma of two I have found everything is less often and for a shorter amount of time. But you do come back to them, they are still fun. GOD BLESS AND MERRY CHRISTMAS.

  7. Ha ha! Cute post. I LOVE Carrie and her obsession with shoes!
    I have so many great shoes that I never wear anymore…mostly because I just don’t go out like I used to….and teaching 4 year olds in high heels just is efficient, LOL!

  8. Oh, girl. The changes – they just keep a comin’. I got so used to wearing those ballet slipper shoes while I was pregnant that I didn’t even want to return to my high heels because they weren’t as comfortable. The changes are sometimes difficult to face. But that precious bundle of God’s sweet goodness is going to make every sacrifice worth it! Just you wait and see. =)

  9. NOT looking forward to the day when I must say my goodbyes as well. Send yours to me. I’ll keep them company… For the next couple of months anyway. πŸ™‚
