The Sock Solution
So I have given up! With the pairing of matching socks that is.
The lost sock is a problem that I am sure has existed since the beginning of time and no one has ever found a satisfactory solution. No matter how much we catch up with our washing, at any given time there is a pile of unmatched socks at the bottom of the clean washing basket. How is it that when I put a wash on full of dirty socks, only one of each comes back out? (I have no idea how Esther and Courtney do it, they each have 7 different sizes of socks to deal with — the mind boggles.)
My eldest daughter has decided that she does not like matching things anyway so mismatched socks is part of her look — which is totally fine by me. My youngest and myself actually do like to have two socks looking the same. Frustration is guaranteed.
So here is my solution: from now on we will all only wear uni-sized black socks! Goodbye to stripes, cat and fox designs. I plan to have a big basket of black socks in our bathroom that everyone one can dig in every morning. There might be different shades of black, there might be slightly different textures of sock, but the overall effect will be fine and the panic of the missing sock will be a thing of the past!
PS Can you imagine what is was like back when we had to hand knit socks and kids would lose one of them? Ha! (Above photos are Bram’s little legs – the cutest! But soon he will start losing his socks too Taking cute photos of socks is a hard task, so Esther was kind enough to step in and help me out!)
