This Foot


Oh the joy of being a grandmother and being able to deal with this foot.

To dust off the bottom of it before putting on tight stretchy socks.

To try as hard yet as gently as I can to somehow fit it into a shoe.

To check for injuries, real or imagined.

To watch it sometimes stomp in anger.

To know that in order to do any of these things, the owner of this foot is sitting in my lap.

There's nothing like it. I will get to see my grandson (and hopefully my new granddaughter if she cooperates and arrives on time) in just a couple of weeks. Can't wait.

Hi Laura,
We really are kindred spirits!! I have two grandsons (Beckham - 4 and Crew -3) and I love, love, love them.
I love to chat more about San Miguel with you.
Have a lovely day!

Two little feet, ten little toes! Every great journey begins with a single step. How nice you are there for the beginning.

My only grandson is grown and in a snotty, snarly stage but I remember his sweet, better days. Oh, yes, I remember.

What an adorable post Laura. And I loved reading all of the comments too. I used to love kissing the bottom of my babies' feet. Seeing them giggle. Sniff sniff. Where's a Kleenex when you need one???

Such precious toes... I think I'd kiss each one! I love to nibble on babie toes!

Very Sweet Post!

Love those little Fred Flinstone feet. So precious.

Oh, Laura ... What a precious picture and sentiments. There's nothing any sweeter than polishing my little "soon-to-be-four" granddaughter's toenails. It makes me sad that she's ALMOST outgrown my lap, though.

So precious. Nothing like a chubby little foot.
