The agony of the feet


This is what happens when you coop kids up in booster seats for too long.

(Draped over Noah's shoulder is his beloved blanket. It goes everywhere with him, and brings him comfort when the world spins a little too quickly for a five-year-old. Looking at this picture makes me wish I had a blanket, too.)

My son doesn't care what he carries with him as long as it has a tag on it that he can worry with. Every blanket, pillow and stuffed animal in my house has a frayed tag or none at all. I think we should all have blankies, I agree.

That is a great picture! I love those tiny feet. My daughter also loves to take her shoes off in the car.

Great shot! I love little people toes. They just look so soft and kissable. I have tons of pics of my kids feet. Sounds rather weird now that I think about it...

Like LINUS!!

Obviously this picture was taken during the summer. I'd imagine if those feet were exposed during one of those London, ON winters, they'd be a nice hue of blue.

Found your site through someone in the States and discovered we're practically neighbours (Burlington, ON --went to Western).

Professional jealousy aside, love your site. Tried subscribing, but doesn't seem to be working. Could you possibly do a quick 'instructional' post for us compewter illiterate?

feet! though i hate adult feet, kid feet are fabulous. teeney tiney toes - and they haven't seen enough frat house carpet to develop chronic athletes foot or weird wart things. (THIS IS NOT ME, I SWEAR. I HAVE NORMAL GIRL FEET.)
and i, too, had a blanket that i took EVERYWHERE with me. I stopped carting it around at age 7 but slept with it until i was ten... this doesn't make me a sad person though. JUST LOYAL.

Isn't it too cold up there to be barefoot - even in the car?

What a cutie he is!

Barbara said...

He looks almost exactly like you.

Sandy said...

Oh I love that! :)

Ah, cuteness. Smart kid. Shoes are evil. I still love to be barefoot except I have noticed that my feet aren't as tough as they were when I was a child. Walking on hot pavement now is agony.

I don't think I ever had a blanket but I have to sleep with a stuffed animal. Otherwise I have nightmares. I even have a stuffed cat over at my friend's house for when we have weekend scrapbooking sessions.

He has figured out what I already know. Shoes are for wimps. Barefeet are the only way to go!

DeAnn said...

Awwww...

And I HATE feet. So this is a VERY big deal for me to think that's cute.

Heh.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Don't you think it would be great to be five again...:o)

Hey, you didn't happen to know former NHLer Donald Audette growing up in Laval, did you? I don't know how small a town it is.

He certainly looks very comfy!!

Adorable! He looks so comfy too. Makes me want to crawl bac under the covers.

Carmi-

You are such a generous blogger! I always enjoy your thoughtful stories and intriguing photos. And you leave the best comments!

Best to you this holiday season!

Joan said...

How completely adorable. Kids' feet are so cute. What happens when we grow up? :-P

Here from Michele's...

Lisa said...

such sweet toes... You know, I wonder. At what point to adorable sweet little children feet turn into icky grown up feet? Grown up feet are NOT cute.

Few people are aware that Scott Carpenter kicked off his boots during his Mercury 7 trip. Houston has photos similar to yours of Noah. Hoston was not amused.~,:^)
