Proverb: "The shomaker's children go barefoot"

Posted on September 13, 2009 by Soft Star Elves There have been 0 comments

There's an old saying, "the children of the shoemaker go barefoot", meaning that the shoemaker is so busy making shoes for other people that his/her kids are neglected. This being back-to-school season, we elves have indeed been busy making classroom slippers as fast as our hands can sew. Six year old elf Tivi started school on Thursday without her front teeth or her classroom shoes... true to the proverb. I hope someday she'll see the humor in this.
