The History Keepers ::: Footprints
It always seemed a little weird to me, but now as a mom -- I get it. There is SOMETHING about baby toes. Those little feet grow SO very quickly and turn into somewhat ugly, certainly dirty big boy feet and something is lost. Perhaps babyhood finishing is signaled most clearly by the feet. When those little button toes turn into long lanky toes that support the monkeys hanging from the apple tree -- well the time of baby has officially passed. It is a sad passing and thus mama's like to hold onto those little baby feet as long as possible.
