Moms and Dads, Ladies and Gents, I present to you the Holy Grail of Childhood Fashion: A baby sock that stays on.
Why is it so hard to find a baby sock that stays on a baby’s feet? I’ve tried Carters and Old Navy, Target and Wal-mart, even fancy schmancy Baby Gap socks, and you know what? They never stay on. It seems like I’m always missing one. Sometimes I wrangle shoes on The Boy just so his freaking socks will stay on.
In the summer it didn’t matter so much, but in the winter? The Boy can’t go around without SOCKS for crying out loud.
Okay, so back to the sock that actually stays on. Here’s the deal. I kind of sort of swiped it from daycare. Okay, not REALLY, but this pair of socks found their way into The Boy’s diaper bag, and I have no idea where they came from.
People, this is a problem. Because, being the ONLY pair of socks that actually stay on The Boy’s feet, I want more. I want to stockpile these socks in every size.
Alas, I only have one pair. And despite me examining every stitch on these socks, I cannot find a tag or name to get more.
So will you help me, Internet? Where can I get more of these socks? And do you, fabulous readers, have any suggestions on socks that stay on babies’ feet? Because there’s no way I am washing these puppies every day.
