I came home from work last night and checked on the kids. My 16 yo son and 12 yo daughter were in the living room watching Titanic. I took my shoes off and sat on the couch to watch a bit. My daughter was laying on the floor and moved to a chair saying she didn't want to smell my stinky feet. I laughed, but my son told her "Mommy's feet don't stink." . Then he looked at me and said "you're too pretty to stink" . I thought it was sweet, and thanked him, but said he would probably change his mind if he got too close. Then I jokingly pointed my foot in his direction. He took my ankle and sniffed my foot. I was shocked. My daughter said he was disgusting and went upstairs to her room, but not before my son told her "you're just jealous because you have big ugly feet and Mommy has small beautiful feet" . Then he went back to sniffing me . I laughed at first , still surprised at what he was doing . But when he started groaning, and telling me I was beautiful, I realized he was aroused. He licked my toe lightly and I screamed. he was startled and let me go. My husband asked what the hell was going on. I didn't dare tell him , but not for the reason you might think. Wanna talk?

16 years? Well, I guess he likes feet, some do. But, you can set boundries. Some men like breasts, but that doesn't mean they get to handle them without prior permission. Just set a firm boundary and teach him respect.

My son does the same thing, but he thinks it's funny to try and bite my big toe. I always tell him that it's gross and that he shouldn't do that. I proceed to redirect him to other toys and he loses interest. Maybe that could work for you? My son is also 16 months. I think it's more of him exploring because he plays with his toes sometimes.

When he does that tell him 'no, that's gross' and move your feet from his reach. You'll have to be firm.. if he thinks you're being funny it won't work! Otherwise, it's a phase that will pass, just really gross in the meantime! Good luck!
