Today, I'm in two places at once. Okay. Not really. But I am a guest over at Jodi Desautel's blog. If you have a moment, please stop by for a visit!
Now for the story:
Last night, when I was tucking my nine-year-old son into bed, I noticed he seemed to be having a fixation with his feet.
"Dude," I said. "Why are you playing with your feet? It's time for bed!"
"Mama, there something really interesting going on here."
I raised my eyebrows. "Apparently. What is so interesting about your feet?"
"There are letters on them. Look, Mama." He traced some lines on the sole of his foot. "This is the letter 'A.' Do you have a letter 'A' on your foot?"
"You seriously want me to take my sock off and see if I have a letter 'A' on the bottom of my foot?"
I sighed and inspected the bottom of my foot. Sure enough, there was a letter "A" on the bottom. "Are you happy, Bubba?"
He shook his head. "Look. Here's a letter 'M.' Do you have a letter 'M'?"
I looked. I did. "Yes, Bubba. I have a letter 'M.'"
"Mama, do you know what that means?"
"No, Bubba, I don't."
"It means we're related!"
lol that is quite the connection. Spells Ma tooReplyDelete
Ha! You're right - it does!Delete
LOL So funny!ReplyDelete
He cracks me up with the things he comes up with!Delete
Aww! That's so adorable!ReplyDelete
I thought it was cute, too!Delete
Now you have proof!ReplyDelete
Yes I do. I can't deny he's my son!Delete
He is so observant!ReplyDelete
I don't think I would've ever noticed that when I was nine years old!Delete
He's so funny!Delete
I thought we get letters on our feet from fathers :PReplyDelete
Ha! Apparently not at my pad!Delete
Ah so that's how it's done....with the feet. What a genius of a son you have.ReplyDelete
He could teach geneticists a thing or two!Delete
Hehehe! How clever!ReplyDelete
Maybe he could make a complete sentence with all the letters on his feet!Delete
Talk about your son putting his best foot forward. Hilarious! :) Almost a theme for the dreaded A to Z.ReplyDelete
That's a good challenge for him - to find all the letters of the alphabet on his feet!Delete
That must have been quite a shock for you because of course you don't remember giving birth to that child.ReplyDelete
It was quite a shock! I nearly fell off the bed when he told me! ;0)Delete
Better than a DNA test!ReplyDelete
Hahahahaha. Great kid.ReplyDelete
He's certainly a funny one!Delete
Thank you again for being interviewed, Sherry. You are drawing quite a crowd! Okay… I am seriously trying to hold myself back from taking of my shoes and socks to check me feet for letters! LOL!ReplyDelete
Thanks for having me as a guest!Delete
You seriously need to check the bottom of your feet. I'm sure you have at least one or two letters lurking there!
You have a heredity expert in the house.:)ReplyDelete
Or so he thinks!Delete
Your son is very brilliant to think like this at his age!!ReplyDelete
The way his mind works truly amazes me!Delete
So cute! What a creative and smart kid :)ReplyDelete
That he is!Delete
Sherry, I also enjoy reading more about you. Jodi conducted a great interview. I love Bubba 's imagination. :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by. I saw your comment!Delete
Bubba does have a great imagination!
Evidence that you are relatedReplyDelete
Who needs gene testing when foot testing works just fine? ;0)Delete
Only my boy would come up with something like that!ReplyDelete
Hah! He's too precious. Now I'm going to have to look over my feet and the kids feet. Are we labeled too?ReplyDelete
Ha! Probably. You'll have to let me know how it turns out!Delete
