It’s Sunday and I did nothing yesterday so today I have been spending the day doing laundry. I was mostly inspired to do laundry because my son had to wear pink socks yesterday. All my husband could find was my daughter’s socks and my son’s feet were cold. Oh man.
My least favorite part of laundry is folding socks. I leave them forever. I figured for sure that my husband was just missing his socks, but no, he was right all of my sons socks were dirty. I decided to fold clothes and my husband came upstairs to help. He mated all of the socks for me and we got rid of all the socks that no longer fit either of our children. He still kept a few pairs of pink socks that no longer fit my daughter for sock emergencies. He is always prepared.
My questions remains though, how many pairs of socks do you have to have for your children so that there is a mate?
This is a picture of my son from last December, look at his feet. Two mismatched socks. Now, I have no problem with mismatched socks, my problem is that it takes us forever just to find two socks that are the right size.
How many extra socks do I need to have to find a pair of socks?
