I love this, really. The idea is not to mar the carpet or the wood floor. For me, I've discovered that there is something truly symbolic about leaving your "work" shoes at the door and donning fuzzy slippers.
The other day while at Sanwado (think Wal-Mart), I was able to find 98 yen slippers. What a STEAL. I picked up three pairs for the little ones.
I was rewarded with squeals of delight at home. "Mine have Minnie on them!"
"Mine have angels on them!"
"Mine have a boy going to the toilet on them!"
::snort:: Ah…toilet slippers. Many homes here have slippers that are housed outside of the bathroom and used only to go into the toilet….I unintentionally bought the kids toilet slippers…. But they work.
