I used to be so embarrassed by this basket. But now it's just a way of life.
I want to be that mom that matches all the socks and puts them neatly in their drawers.
Well let's be honest I'm just not, anymore.
When you have 7 pairs of feet to have socks for everyday. That makes for a lot of socks.
Way to overwhelming when just getting the rest of the clothes folded and set into baskets for everyone to put away. I just throw them all in a basket and they can fend for themselves.
Plus when I can hardly ever get a matching pair in the washer at the same time. One is usually stuck in a pant leg or under a bed or even behind the bathroom door. Still sitting there all alone from last nights shower.
Now if they are lucky and I see a pair together I will stick them together and put them in that child's pile. But other then that they are in the "sock basket".
I will put my dear hubby's together for him. This is one thing he has asked for from me. He just doesn't have time in the morning to spend 5 minutes looking through the basket. Since he is such an amazing husband and he goes to work all day, I suppose this small request I will do with a sweet smile.
So how does your family deal with the dreaded socks?
