I know I've ranted about SOCKS before. Well before I started this blog. But when you see the photos I think you'll agree that this IS warranted. First I must share that I personally avoid wearing socks. I don't know why but generally I do. Today I was coaching N's tball team so I HAD to
So I'm waiting for my husband to convert my photos. (there were well over 145 from just one day) and then I will share the socks debacle. Justin held a contest to see who could match the most socks. Rob and I were checking their progress when we saw 1) the ROLLED the socks in a way that we couldn't even see the colored stitching at the toe that we use to know whose are whose and 2) NONE of our kids can actually MATCH socks! Oh my my my... long socks with short socks, red stitched socks with blue stitched socks, so we had to re check them and ended up redoing 1/3 of them and throwing away some of the ones that children seem to have worn outside without shoes and have worn multiple days in a row. I started doing the "blind crusty test" to make the throw away decisions. Truthfully I should have scrapped the entire mound of socks but somehow THAT seems wasteful. (why spending THAT much time having the kids do it and then Rob and I redoing their work did not seem wasteful is baffling I know)
Here are the photos from Rob. Thanks love. Here are 2 of the 5 "helpers".
Look how proud they are.
The Land of the Misfit and Mismatched Socks
I'm sure Disney will pick up on this universal story of sad neglected socks someday.
OH and yes I am wearing socks as I type this. It is rare occasion indeed.
Until next time....
