Mind Your Own Business!

For those of you who don't know Alex well enough to have known this, he is bowlegged and his feet turn in. We've talked to his pediatrician, been through a bit of physical therapy, and had him x-rayed and evaluated at Primary Childrens. Diagnosis: he's totally fine and healthy and will grow out of it. Lately, his legs have been straightening out a ton, which has been great to see. I think I've even finally convinced my mother-in-law that he is fine.

But this morning, I was stopped by a complete stranger.

Man: "Excuse me..."

Me: "Yeah?"

Man: (pausing) "I just noticed your little boy's feet. Are they doing something about that?"

Me: "Yeah." (I figured that would be easier than the whole above explanation)

Man: "Oh, okay. I just wanted to make sure you were aware of it."

Aware of it? Nah. I mean, he's almost 2 1/2, and I am his mother but somehow I just never noticed that he walks a little funny. Seriously? Seriously! I am still just in shock that a complete stranger would stop me to inform me that my kid walks funny. Okay, dude. Mind your own business.
