Being trained as a secondary-level English teacher, I'm often at a loss to come up with a age-appropriate solution for a toddler/preschooler. But, Inspiration struck last week after the umpteenth time of explaining to Flicka that the reason she had blisters was because she had her shoes on the wrong feet and she replied "but I like them this way!"
Not wanting to discourage her from her self-dressing education (which helps while I'm wrangling Pojke into clothes as well), I took a permanent marker and drew two small smiley faces on each of the arch areas/ inside edges of the soles of her shoes. Then, I told her that when she put her shoes on to make sure that the smiley faces were facing each other so they could "kiss" and say goodbye before we left! LOL
And, we've had no problems since!
