Look Ma, no shoes!

The Spawn often gets asked, "Where are your shoes?" Fact is, she doesn't like wearing shoes and mostly doesn't. I've yet to hear a good reason to wear shoes to the library, for instance. Anyhow, I just found a fun website about this very thing! It's called Parents for Barefoot Children. Sometimes the internet amazes me.

  1. I didn't know that existed. But it's about time. The research is finally coming in, and -- no surprise at all to ME, naturally -- the science shows that somehow, a hundred thousand years or so of adaptation by the feet of the human species does a better job by itself than it does when encased in arbitrarily designed chunks of fabric, leather, plastic and metal.

    Who would ever have imagined that our feet might actually be beautifully adapted for the task of getting us around? What an astonishing idea!
