So.... I hate outdoor shoes on in the house. I can't stand the thought of someone walking over cigarette butts on the footpath or pee droplets in a public toilet and then traipsing this all over my clean floor.
I have a shoe rack sort of near the front door (off to the side a bit but visible). My toddler knows to take his shoes off and put them on the shoe rack when he comes inside. Hubby gets it right 90% of the time.
My parents always waltz in with their shoes on and carry on as usual. They are probably oblivious to the fact that the rest of us take out shoes off.
******What do you expect of guests in your home? What would you do in my situation? What do you think I am planning on doing? What do you do when you go to other people's houses? (I usually start taking my shoes off unless -and this is going to sound nasty- the house, floor in particular, is totally ferral then I will leave my shoes on).*****
