Where’s Your Shoe?

Help me out, Where’s your shoe? Let’s get out, Where’s your shoe? Click To Tweet

Help me out,
Where’s your shoe?
Let’s get out,
Where’s your shoe?

You had it,
Where’s your shoe?
I saw it,
Where’s your shoe?

Where’s your shoe?
Please blabber,
I beg you.

Please help me,
Where’s your shoe?
Point and see,
Where’s your shoe?

I love you!
Here’s a shoe.
It won’t do,
We need two.

Come now,
Where’s the other shoe?
But how?
Where’s the other shoe?

Think now,
Where’s the other shoe?
I vow,
Where’s the other shoe?

Where’s the other shoe?
Where’s the other shoe?

Will I.
Where’s the other shoe?
Let fly.
Where’s the other shoe?

‘Shoe Play’
Where’s the other shoe?
I pay.
Where’s the other shoe?

Ah here!
Here’s your shoe!
My dear,
Here’s your shoe!

Let’s go,
With your shoes.
Late though,
We got shoes.

Out now,
With our shoes.
Right now,
We can’t lose.

Shoe or shoes can be replaced with any item you may need to get out of the house, theirs or yours. Keys and wallets cause particularly tricky situations. What’s the best item you’ve had missing?

You can find my posts linked to some of these great link ups:


  1. Shoes! Every damn morning! Great poem! #sharingthebloglove

    • You too! My husband’s wallet was the worst. He’s learnt now, I think.

  2. I can definitely relate to this having been super chuffed with my shoe organisation abilities a few weeks back, and putting a decorative box near the door for the kids shoes. Has it helped? Has it HELL. Now I just have to rummage through a box rather than a pile!
    Thanks for sharing with #coolmumclub

    • I was about to go for the decorative box idea. 😂least the put them in a set place. That sounds life changing. I once looked everywhere and one was in her play kitchen fridge. Of course it was.

  3. Ah shoes, the menace of every toddler/ school-going-child’s mum. Either one is lost, or is on the wrong foot. Take your pick…

  4. Oh those blooming shoes. Torture. Always losing them! #FridayFrolics

    • That’s a good one. I saw a blog suggesting just to bulk buy plain white socks. I completely understand why now. Odd socks it is…

  5. We tore our place apart looking for Big’s ballet shoes yesterday. After near annihilation of our home, they were located and Nutcracker auditions were had. Now, the mess. You are brilliant! #FridayFrolics xoxo

    • Thanks. I think it’s worse when you only have one pair or if only ballet shoes will do. Hope the audition went well, must of had to change the energy to dance.

  6. Haha, this is us, every time! My son could fail to find his shoes even if he was stood right in front of them! My husband’s just as bad though – he’s always asking where my son’s shoes are (having failed to look in the shoe cupboard – the first place you look, surely?!) THanks for joining us t #SharingtheBlogLove

  7. love this! Hubby always checks for his keys, phone and wallet…. five minutes after we leave somewhere!! #coolmumclub

    • Thanks. We’ve had the wallet taken by her but surprisingly we left it till the next morning and daddy was saying, ‘Grace we’re is daddy’s wallet?’ And she actually went and came back with it! (Only time) she was literally cheered and lifted like a champion. I think she was 13 or 14 months.

  8. Really love this and can very much relate. Also great to be introduced to a new blog, really like the USP and style. But my epic shoe poem would have to be about when you get home and realised they’ve lost a shoe on the way home, who knows where…?! Aargh! #bigpinklink

    • Aww thanks. I just googled USP and am chuffed. I fear losing a shoe while we are out. We’re in Ethiopia at the moment and her Clarks Firsts are not replaceable. It can never happen.

  9. What is it with shoes? I just don’t know where they can go, surely you take them off and put them in the shoe rack! Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

  10. ha ha at one point my daughter had 4 ‘pairs’ of shoes and only one shoe in each pair!! Its a mystery where they get to

    • 😂😂😂I’m thinking she had to have worn odd pairs.

  11. Shoe or shoes, always under the sofa, right at the back where it’s a bit *dusty!! #fridayfrolics

  12. Well written post. The shoe struggle is real. We mainly know where they are but getting her to put them on is the real struggle. #FamilyFun

    • Oh my, putting them on herself…gulp!

  13. Jen Jen

    Every single morning. Then we lose them in the car again on the way to where we are going!

  14. For MOH it’s his glasses, usually they’re on his head. Or – and regularly at the moment – an umbrella, then he can’t find it and can’t be bothered. Thank goodness there’s no toddlers in this house as I’m not sure who would be worse! Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

  15. Ha ha, love this. Every morning at least one shoe gets lost at the back of the shoes cupboard. Or it’s sunny and the youngest just has to have her Minnie Mouse sunglasses before we leave the house, but we can never ever find them x

  16. lol! I love this poem. Makes my chuckled and think of my kids in the morning getting ready for school.

    Thank you so much for linking up with us on #FabFridayPost xx

    • Thanks. Glad we can all laugh about it afterwards.

    Thankfully we’ve not lost our shoes for too long. What’s more annoying is when the oh is trying to find he toddlers shoes, I always end up having to get up and go straight to them myself, very annoying… the last thing I lost that really needed was maternity notes, I’m really not sure this fits 😂

    ‪Thank you for linking up to the #familyfunlinky‬

    I can totally relate to this and I don’t even have children lol
    Thanks for linking up to #AnythingGoes 🙂

  19. Still love this. Thank you for sharing this at #TriumphantTales. Hope to see you again on Tuesday.

  20. Shoes… Or keys… every single day! How do things disappear on a daily basis?!?! Thank you for sharing with #bigpinklink x
