As the mom to many tying shoes has been one of the most challenging and yet rewarding lessons.
I have a left-handed kiddo who watched me tie his shoe and instantly could do it. He wasn’t my smartest child; I just think the mirror of watching me do it right-handed jived with his left-handed thinking and voilà! He was a champion. He also went on to be my champion knot tying kiddo. He excelled at tying!
I also have a child whom, in first grade, the teacher had “tie shoes” on a list of things to complete by year’s end, and I asked if she couldn’t just add that to her lesson plan. Even to this day, tying shoes is not that child’s signature move. There were many fights. He wanted Velcro; I insisted he “just learn to do it.” Then, I would grow impatient when his version of “tied” came undone, over-and-over again.
Precious Moments captures the moment with a porcelain figurine that depicts a mom tying her sweet son’s shoe. On her knees, looking her son in the eye, they both know their bond will last their lifetimes.
Like all Precious Moments Figures “Love Ties Us Together” is a meticulously sculpted fine bisque porcelain and expertly hand-painted in the infamous Precious Moments pastels. There is so much detail in this piece.
