The Sock

October 26, 2015

I think that all socks for little humans should come up to their knees. I know I can't be the only one who struggles with keeping them on Buggy's feet. Everywhere we go he kicks them off, if he has shoes on-he gets the shoes off first and then BAM socks are gone too.

This usually isn't a problem,just annoying. Last Friday, the clouds had gathered and we were seeing rain for the first time in a long time.

I already knew it was going to be a long morning,because for Monkey's preschool we have to get out and go in to sign him in or out, no drop off lane for him. Loading them up wasn't to bad, and it wasn't raining to bad at the time.

In our seven minutes to get from our home to his school-the skies had opened and it was pouring down. I went ahead and had Monkey put on his back pack and coat ready to get out. I jump out and unlock Buggy and get him out, run to the other and help Monkey jump over the mud puddle. Then we run to the entry way,hit the button,wait for what seems forever for the door to unlock and go in.

I want to stop for a minute,because I know you are thinking about an umbrella. Honestly I just get even more wet when dealing with one instead of just using my coat especially since I've had two kids.

Anyways, I get Monkey settled in at school and start getting ready to run back to my uncovered car as now the rain was falling harder.  I buckle Buggy in the car as I'm hunched over and every small rain drop gets colder. I look at his feet and notice one of them is bare. His cute little toes wiggling at me. I have two options: abandon the sock and mourn it later or try to find it. I decides to abandon but as I look back there it is-the small white cotton sticking up from the dirty puddle up by the entry door.  I run quick to grab it, and jump back in the drivers seat. I was drenched! I seriously looked like I had just taken a shower-all over a sock that I could buy more of at Walmart easily. But when I saw it there-I couldn't leave it. Why? I have no idea!

Needless to say, I'm investing in knee highs or sock suspenders!
