Having issues with socks: I recommend only giving a choice of two spare socks in bag or else its overwhelming/too many choices and heading towards meltdown territory.
Pick your battles
Mum: “Put your socks on!”
Son: “I can’t, they don’t feel right!”
Mum: “Ok, well you can get another pair of socks from your room.”
Kiddo: “No I can’t.”
Kiddo: “Because the others don’t feel right
Mum.” What to do in this situation? I have to get this kid to school (or so methinks). When he finally decides to put a pair of socks on,
Kiddo says “Mum, which sock is for the left foot and which sock is for the right foot?”
Mum: Oh for Goodness sakes! Are you kidding with me? (for want of a better word!) “Honey you have 20 pairs of socks and they are all exactly the same.”
Kiddo:”No, they aren’t Mum! I know my socks!” , can we make friends with the two black socks, and give them names. (I remember my Nanna saying, “You would not read about it!” and I can’t help smiling because the socks just got animated in my brain, the socks have the power to make my child’s life suck! You wouldn’t read about it!)
😄 I love you son. (To me they are 20 pairs of exactly the same socks but little do I know that the fibres in these socks, do these socks have names? How do you tell which sock is the left and right sock if both saocks are black, the answer is ……Drum roll please! and this is a son has a self regulated solution!
One black sock is slightly longer than the other! Tadaaaaa!
Who would of thought because I thought the difference was how worn out and tired the socks were and that is how you could work out which pair of sock actually were the one’s that felt right !
They were also the only socks that could be worn for all eternity!
