Lyn really cannot tie her shoes any longer. Mom has been suggesting that shoes with velcro may be a good choice for her. Until now, Lyn steadfastly gave Mom The Look with each suggestion. No more.
Lyn has agreed that they can go shopping or shoes with velcro. It will allow her to keep some independence and self pride that she can do it herself. I'm honestly glad that Lyn's no longer fighting the suggestion for velcro closures for that reason.
Perhaps in their shopping, they'll find something she'll like. There are more options available than just velcro. There are slip on athletic shoes as well as the ones with the stretchy laces that don't require being tied.
