Is this normal at any age?

This post could also be entitled “She doesn’t get this from me”….

You have all met my 3 year old daughter.

We have recently discovered she has a hidden talent.

She is able to walk with her toes curled under.

Like a ballerina.

Except not quite as tall.

Even when walking up our steps….

She can keep her toes curled under.

It’s kind of gross and adorable at the same time.

Can you do this??????

And more importantly… I have a child prodigy on my hands?????????

We may have to apply for “Toddlers and Tiaras” soon!


  • That is IMPRESSIVE!
    I’m not sure what it means, but I’m sure it’s something special! =)

  • I have an aunt who can do that, I’m actually surprised that as old as she is now(60) and as heavy as she’s gotten, she can still do it without breaking her toes. It’s a unique thing is all I can say, but she sure does look adorable.

    All 3 of my kiddos do this. They started when they were little and I kept thinking they would eventually outgrow it as the got bigger and added weight. Well now they are 14,11 and 8 and they can still do it. Crazy kiddos!

    OMGoodness, that would break me

  • Finally I meet someone else that has my talent!!!!!! I can totally do that. Double jointed toes. My daughter can do it too! It always freaks everyone out!

    Way fun….

    My three year old little boy just started doing that and it totally freaks me out! He is double jointed in all his joints (we call him the Gumby child.) Glad to know there are other people out there who can do this and it doesn’t break their toes.
