Crotch Feet.

Something I've learned about my sweet little "Mary Kate" over this recovery period, is that she likes to wedge her feet into my crotch when she is tired and/or not feeling well. This is a comfort habit that she seems to have inherited from the Munchkin. When the Munchkin sleeps in our bed, I am constantly awakened by her little toes trying to wiggle their way to my crotch. It's a very odd thing, I'm not sure if it's the warmth or the going back from where they came that seems to draw them in, nonetheless it's strange to me.

It's most uncomfortable and is not Mommy specific. Husband has mentioned several times how he would have slept better without feet in is crotch all night.

I've seen kids that like boobs and will stuff their hands down shirts in order to rest their hands, but never a crotch and feet. Somehow I don't think I'm going to look back on their little crotch seeking missiles as one of those sweet things I'll miss when they no longer do it. Really. It's just bizarre.

OMG. I swear I thought only my 4-year-old did this! When he crawls in bed with us, he'll put his feet there whether you are facing him or with your back to him. It's just.... um... disturbing? (Sorry Kiddo..)

My 2-year old does both the hand down Mommy's shirt and the feet in the crotch!
