I heard a comment today about how we develop. It appears we develop from the head downwards. This kind of makes sense if you don't think about it too much. The foetus in the womb starts off looking like a large head, with a tadpole tail, then the torso develops, then finally the legs. I can see that.

Babies are focused on sucking milk, then what they can touch and finally their feet catch up and they learn to walk.

So can we could follow the same pattern throughout life? Babies and toddlers put everything in their mouths. Children like to build things and take them apart - so that is their hands. (No explanation as to why they like to run around as much as they do.) After that it just gets silly - but it amused me for a few minutes, thinking about it.

Moving down - clearly the groin area belongs to teenagers, which leaves the legs for adulthood and feet for old age. Hmm, unlikely... Certainly my Mum is still complaining about her knees rather than her feet, so she still has a way to go before old age catches up on her....

Ooh, me poor feet!
