I need some help people. A long time ago, in a far away galaxy - no just kidding but back when the kids were younger and I was totally into the good mommy thing, I would actually match each sock with its pair and then put them in that person's drawer. Then one day a friend told me how his mom had just thrown all socks into a laundry basket and that person needing socks just had to dig through the basket and find the matching socks. Like a game, sorta. A sucky game at that.
Anyway, so I started to do this and I thought woohoo, this really cuts down on laundry time. The snag? Well who do you think hunts for the kids' socks?? Yeah that's right people, ME!! I don't want to play this game anymore. The sock basket has become this giant mess that seems to have come alive. I am pretty sure it tried to eat the dog yesterday mistaking her as a missing black knee high.
So please, could you help a girl out and give me some suggestions on how to handle the sock situation?? Pretty soon I am going to throw out ALL socks and make everyone in our family wear sandals 24/7.
