Is this gross?

My 14 month old loves to come up at tickle my feet. I always hang my foot over the armrest of the computer chair and he just comes ove and wiggles his little fingers and says "ti-il ti-il". My sister told me it's gross that I let him touch my feet. What do you think?

  • I don't think it's gross. If you walked around in a barnyard barefoot maybe but otherwise, no. My son likes to tickle my feet too. It's a fun game we have. I'm not going to discourage it. I don't think you should either.

  • My youngest always tries to bite peoples toes. I don't know why...he is weird I guess :D
    Tickling is no big deal. I wouldn't worry about it.

    BTW...we do not let our LO bite our feet...so I don;t need any ninnies telling me how gross it is.

  • No. You tickle her feet - right. Your sister has a foot fedish. My son use to come and try to put my big toe in his mouth. That was gross!

  • Your sister is weird! lol Im guessing she doesnt have kids. Unless you are walking around hospitals bare foot or tredding through dog sh** its nothing to worry about. Its not like hes sucking your toes! lol And besides, kids suck their own toes anyway! haha

  • That's cute. My 17 month old does the same. I just don't let him lick feet. That's where it gets gross.

  • It's only gross if your feet are dirty and he puts his fingers in his mouth immediately after. My feet aren't always the cleanest and I don't have a problem with my kids trying to tickle them (though I try not to let them because I just don't like being tickled).

    A foot fetish is when you like feet, not when you think their gross.
