The other day Madeline noticed a heel lift in my tennis shoe for my left foot.
“What’s that?” she asked.
“I had to get a heel lift in my left shoe because one of my legs is a lot shorter than the other.”
As in almost two stinkin’ inches, People. And I’d been wondering why I could no longer run long distances and why my hip was killing me. It’s a wonder I can even walk. (A recent visit to a sports medicine physician revealed I have a drastic leg length difference problem. It’s no wonder I’m a complete klutz.)
“That’s silly,” she said. “Both your legs have had the same time to grow.”
She does have a point. Hopefully, my children will grow more evenly than their mom.
