Dear Kid,

It is a weekend full of holidays. Tomorrow is Labor Day. And today is Wiggle Your Toes Day.

I did not make that up. Somebody did, but amazingly it wasn’t me.

This is a great place to wiggle your toes. What's your favorite place for toe wiggling? DearKidLoveMom.comWiggle Your Toes Day seems to me to be one of the greatest holidays ever invented. It involves toes and wiggling and bare feet and not having to send cards and pretty much the world doesn’t get any better than that.

It will also make my physical therapists happy to know that I am wiggling my toes. I’m sure they’d be even happier if they thought I was wiggling the way they showed me, but anything that gets my feet muscles moving falls into the “good” category as far as they are concerned.

Toe wiggling is fun. It’s even more fun if you can wiggle them in mud, sea, sand, or dirt. But since my last Venture Into the Wild ended on such an itchy note, I’m going to settle for wiggling in mid-air. Inside air. Non-poisoned inside air.

What’s your favorite place for toe wiggling?

There is something entirely carefree about toe wiggling. There is no end-purpose to toe wiggling. There are no toe wiggling competitions (at least none that I’m aware of). It’s just one of those things that’s fun just for being fun.

Hope you’re having a great weekend and that you find some carefree time to wiggle your toes.

Love, Mom
