Baby Socks and Bare Feet


Over the past few days I've been working on cleaning out Rooster’s sock drawer. And yes, I said days.

Why does cleaning out a 1 year old’s sock drawer take so long you ask?
Well, it’s probably because I HATE BABY SOCKS!

Yes, I know it’s not nice to hate things this close to Thanksgiving. I just can’t help it.

I’m pretty much at the point where I just want to throw away all of his socks and start over. None of them fit! None of the match! And half of them have gone missing! (Anyone have any cute craft projects using tiny unmatched socks?)

Why can’t the sock monster eat all these too small socks instead of the brand new ones I just bought?

Over the past few days I've collected a basket full of sock and wouldn't you know, in that whole basket only two pair fit. Two pair!

I take that back. The two pair that fit aren't even in the basket. They are in the dirty clothes hamper! 

Oh, and FYI if you think buying white socks for your 1 year old is a good idea, think again.  I’m sure some veteran mom out there is laughing her head off because “of course you don’t buy boys white socks! They get dirty and stay that way.” Well…now I know. I need dark colored sock and lots of them!

Until then I’m pretty sure Rooster is just going to have to keep wearing the dingy white pair he’s worn for two days now. And if that makes me a bad mom, then go ahead and turn me in to the authorities! Maybe they’ll sign up from some government program that gives needy kids socks for Christmas.

Here’s hoping!


  1. I've always said that if I ever win the lottery, socks will become a disposable item in my household!

  2. I do buy white socks for all 3 of my boys, but they get holes in them so fast, they hardly have time to go gray! That's my frustration. How can boys get holes in their socks so fast?!
