Do You Pick Things Up With Your Toes?

I am surrounded by my 2 kids at home on the weekend. A 4 months old baby who needs to be carry using both hands, not forgetting my active 3 years old girl who is constantly on the move. Often, I pick up small items on the floor using my toes. Why do I pick up things with my toes instead of with my hands? I did that not because I am lazy, is simply because my hands are occupied and I can't bend over with my baby on hand. I do this regularly, repeatedly, and it has become a habit.

I don't know when I started doing so, but it's something I have always done and will probably continue to do.

Little did I know that this simple routine that occur subconsciously was picked up by my girl. She was thrilled when she show off her newly acquired skill! See, she is able to grab the item tightly with her toes.

She put her new skill to test when daddy requested her to pick up her toys. She gladly used her toes to grab her small toy, raise her feet, and drop the item into her toy box. But, daddy [speechless] figure out it will take forever if she is picking up her toys with her toes instead of hands?!

What's next? She need some practice to grab the item with her toes, raise it up to her hand without bending over. Good luck, girl. Practice makes perfect!
Do you pick things up with your toes too?


  1. little girl is meticulous in spotting miniature objects on the floor too!
