PBK tends to fall down more than other kids, because her feet curve in a bit (metatarsus adductus) and her shin bones are a little, um, twisted (tibial torsion). She used to get a lot of Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy. And we had to put her shoes on the opposite feet to help correct the curving, which made people think I was a moron. I can't tell you how many random strangers would insipidly ask, "Do you know her shoes are on the wrong feet, Mommy?" Which totally pissed The Peanut Butter Kid off. "They're not on the wrong feet," she would clarify, rolling her big brown eyes. "They're on the opposite feet." Stupid grown-ups.
I can definitely relate. While the comments don't bother me, it's still humorous. Yesterday my husband and I were joking that I should start wearing my shoes on the opposite feet to really throw people off. Or perhaps I should have a prize ready for the 50th person that asks about it.
But the best part is finding someone that has experienced what we're experiencing, and that has a sense of humor about it.
