Stinky Feet

1 May


Lucy and I were playing on the bed today and I reached down to kiss her toes and noticed that she had stinky feet and my eyes welled up with tears. My baby has stinky feet. What’s next, her period? Wha – huh – come again – you must be thinking. But yes that’s where my seemingly non-sequitur brain went. And the thing is, those thoughts aren’t totally disconnected. My daughter, who until she started walking, had beautiful, lovely, rose-scented toes, suddenly had stinky feet. Stinky feet mean that she’s using her feet, which means that she’s not only walking, but also running, and jumping, and doing all those things that big(ger) kids do with their feet. It means that my baby is growing up.

She has skinned knees too, which means that she’ll probably be getting her driver’s license any day now.

    Please email us and tell us all considered, which is better for a couple that are retired and has to move because of low income in USA, Nicaragua or Panama? We have to move soon! We can only afford to go to one of them to see for ourselves. Please give us your opinion without conflicting and confusing websites.
    Thanks,

      Hi Stuart,
      Thanks for visiting! I am quite hesitant to give people relocation advice. I’ve only been to Panama once, on my honeymoon. I suspect that Nicaragua is more affordable; however, Panama has much greater infrastructure. The two countries are worlds apart in many ways. I would highly recommend visiting a country before making the decision to move. Though the visit might be expensive, relocation is significantly more expensive, so better to do your research up front and save yourself time, money, and heartache later on.

      All the best to you!

    Oh my goodness…you know I was just this week reading a post from another mother who was marking her child’s milestones and with them the passing of time, and for her, the lastest milestone was having to give her baby boy a bath because he was stinky…and so time goes. Man. Beautiful photo, btw.

      It’s amazing how fast time passes, isn’t it? Our little one will be a year and a half old this week – bah! In some ways, it’s hard to believe that she hasn’t been with us forever, but in other ways, I can’t believe she’s already so grown up!
