Socks? Yes, socks. I’m talking baby socks, toddler socks, preschool socks, and all manner of little kid socks from infant on up. I realize in confessing this, I might sound a little crazy. But the truth is that I only buy certain makes, models, and colors of socks and I’ve come to have very strong opinions about them. It’s the fashionista in me; I can’t help it.
It all started innocently enough with my only daughter. We lucked into a dozen or so super awesome socks along with a mixed bag of other varieties.
Trumpette socks are the very best. They don’t fall off little feet and they come in cute mix-and-match colors and patterns. Buy a dozen – yes they cost more! – and be done. You’re welcome.
Toddlers and Preschoolers:
Triple-Roll socks for this age group. I suggest you buy 10 or so in the same color and never worry about matching socks again. Yes, I recommend color-code. The basic colors and grippy writing on the bottom of the foot make these little guys great for new walkers and the kids who like to sprint through the kitchen. I prefer to buy dark colors to hide the playground dirt better.
Big preschoolers on up:
This would be a no-brainer...Lots of colors, patterns, and totally basic.
