Irregular plurals...

Esther was struggling to reconcile her experience of the irregular plural form of foot (feet) yesterday with her understanding of the rule for forming plurals (add an s); here is an approximation of the conversation:

Esther: Look at my feet!
Mom: Very nice feet...
Esther: I have two...foots.
Mom: You do have two feet.
Esther: No! You have feet, I have foots!

And apparently satisfied with her resolution, she went off to play.
