Finding really good quality sneakers for Josh has been quite difficult at times. When he plays, he plays hard and running holes through the bottom of his shoes and sneakers has happened too often for me to know the exact number anymore.
When I attended the Mom Trends Back to School Event earlier this summer, I was excited to see that Stride Rite was in attendance showcasing their new collection, the Made2Play Collection.
About 2 weeks ago, I found out Josh had an infection in his foot (by his ankle) after his dad and I took him to the E.R. and they ran blood tests (that was especially difficult because Josh has anxiety about needles and doctors). We informed all the doctors, nurses and staff that he was a child with autism and it may be hard for him to communicate what kind of pain he has and that he might have trouble understanding what was going on.
