squeaky shoes

why are parents obsessed with squeaky shoes for kidoos.
really irritating.
i am sure even the kids must be hating it.
whats the 'dr. spocks' rationale behind it.

can any parent reading this drivel throw some light on this early child care concept.

aah a question made for me!
child with said shoe is a belled cat. based on the distinctive sound (and light) display of your child's shoes, you know exactly where kiddo is wandering off to. you can shut your eyes (even the one in the back we moms have) and still hear the reassuring squeak squeak squeak.
but you are right. they are annoying. we have been blessed enough to not own a single pair. means double duty for eyes but hey!

kenny - we are not alsatians to be able to make out distinctive squeaks.
thats what you are good at - non conforming. and thats a relief to have such around :-)
more power to 4 eyed moms.
