Shoes for Isabella

Isabella woke up bright and early and bounced out of bed. "Today is the day!" she said excitedly, "Today is the day, I get my new shoes!" She hurried into her mother and father's room.

Mommy was still in bed when Isabella rushed into the room. "Mommy! Mommy! Wake up!" she cried  excitedly.

Mommy opened her eyes sleepily and yawned. "Isabella, my sweet," she said. "It's too early. The stores aren't even open yet. Don't worry." she added when she saw Isabella's disappointed face. "By the time we get dressed and get ready and eat our breakfast, it will be time to go."

Isabella dressed quickly. The rest of the morning dragged on slowly. She barely touched her breakfast because she was too excited. She just kept staring at the door and waiting for it to be time to go.

Finally, it was time. As soon as they arrived in the store, Isabella began hurrying through the racks of shoes looking for the perfect pair. "No." she said shaking her head and pointing to a  pair of brown shoes painted with flowers. No to a pair of pink and white striped shoes. No to a  pair of plain black shoes. No. No. No. Again and again no. Each pair of shoes she saw, she did not want.

"Isabella," said her mother."Aren't there any shoes here that you like?" Isabella shook her head sadly. She sat down on the floor and looked as though she would cry.

Just then a young sales woman approached. She smiled at Isabella. "Hi. I'm Jen. Can I help you?" she asked. Isabella didn't think so. She looked disappointedly at Jen. Jen just smiled back at her. "Don't worry." she said "I think I know the perfect shoes for you." Jen went into the store room and came back a moment later. She handed Isabella a box. "These just came in." she said "We haven't even had time to put them out yet."

Isabella slowly opened the box. She wasn't expecting much. However, as soon as the box was open her whole face lit up. She excitedly lifted up a sparkly red shoe. "These are perfect!" she said excitedly to her mother.

"Are you sure?" asked her mother.

Isabella nodded happily. "Yes!" she replied" These are the shoes I want for my first day of kindergarten!"
