Babies don't need sneakers!!!

So I was out shopping the other day and of course wandered into the baby section. I'm about 7 weeks away from having my first child so those little baby clothes and toys are totally irresistible!! And then I came across these little sneakers, I mean, come on plaid converse without laces, how cool are they! So I rummaged through all the sizes and colors until I found the ones I liked (since we don't know the gender I settled on the yellow, brown and navy plaid ones) and as I'm walking up to the register a funny thought popped into my head - babies don't need sneakers!!! How ridiculous it is that you feel like you HAVE to buy these things for your child and how the stores make you feel like you NEED it so.
But I just laughed to myself and kept on going to the register.
This is, after all, my first child and they are just so cool!!

Haha. Yes, they always have struck me as silly but almost every baby I see wears shoes.
