Give 'Em THE FOOT

In case you hadn’t guessed already, our family is a little…weird. Off. Different. Unique.

Whatever you want to call it.

For example, it is a sign of affection in our family to “Give The Foot!”

When saying good night, I tell my son to “Give Daddy The Foot!”

Parker proudly lifts his foot in the air at my husband, and my husband does it back. Everyone laughs and smiles.

In the living room, sitting on the couch, while we’re chillin’ out, maxin’ and relaxin’, we spontaneously give The Foot to show we love each other.

Hey, Parker, show these people how we roll. Give them The Foot!

Feel the love. Get The Foot!

There you go. From our family to yours.

How odd, but cutely unique. Ellen, my stepdaughter and I had a question. Sabe uma coisa? (Portuguese) "Do you know something?" Her reply was always, "yeah, you love me" and she would ask me the same question for the same answer. Must post about that one day.

But I wouldn't go showing the foot in Thailand.Showing the sole of the feet is the height of insults...

Um...just out of curiosity, how did that start out?

MultipleMum said...

We use the more traditional "slip me some skin" but I love that you have found a new way to share the love :) Right back at ya! I'm with Oddyoddyo13, what's the story behind it?

Quite the cute tradition! We're the family who traditionally gooses one another. As in, a pinch to the little ol' backside...

I think things like this are the key to having a fun, close family. My kids are older now and they love all the weird things only we do!

That's really cute. We have our little eccentricities too - it's the sweet little things that make your family 'your family.
