So tedious a process that I stopped at two buttons, and that’s without a child in them.

If you got them on both wiggly little feet, they most likely would not come off during a Costco run.  I do love the tiny nail detail on the soles. And appreciate the time and effort of mothers at the turn of the 20th century.

Plus it puts a new understanding and joy into ‘1-2 Buckle My Shoe’. ( And save an hour or two . . )
