Just one more thing to worry about

Because my mom guilt and all of the other reasons I have for worrying about The Boys, and wondering exactly how much I will be spending on future therapy weren't enough. I present to you sideways toes.

Yes, I said it. I'm now thinking that squeezing out another season of The Youngest's cleats, and giving in to his demands of the cool rocker converse high tops, which do NOT come in wide widths may permanently damage the kid's feet. He came in after stubbing his toe on the wall - and no I didn't ask how - I really didn't want to know anyway. When I looked, I noticed that he was walking on the side of his pinkie toe.
Thinking that it may have been an affect of the wall, I looked at the other foot, and saw it's similar sidewaysness, I was only moderately relieved. No trip to the emergency room, but still...
I had to wonder, and then I looked at The Oldest's feet. I'll give you one guess as to what I found.

I'm thinking this is from The dude's side of the family, because I do not have sideways pinkie toes. I have high rider pinkie toes, that do not touch the ground at all, or just barely.

Oh, and ignore the fact that The Boys feet are not at all clean. They run around barefoot 365 days a year, only donning shoes out of necessity - the No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service kind of necessity at that.

My pinkie is also sideways. May be that is why my feet hurts like crazy when I wear new shoes.
