Dad Pic: Happy Mother’s Day! (Or, Geez That Took a While!)

That's An Ottoman Chock Full o' Sox (Photo by the Author)

Mama’s away this weekend, attending the annual Breathe Retreat with the ladies of Quest Community Church.  So this evening (or should I say, Friday evening) after getting some other things taken care of, I thought it might be helpful if I emptied out the two laundry baskets of the girls’ socks and put them away.  Not that there were two full baskets of socks; rather, each of our laundry baskets had a layer of socks on the bottom because it’s time-consuming to match them up and typically laundry is done on weekends when the girls are running at full force.  With two of them, a backlog can develop pretty quickly.

That was right at 11:00, since my thought was I could dump the socks out in a pile and pair them up while I was watching the late local news and then go to bed.


It’s just past 2:30 now on Sunday morning.  Turns out it takes a really long time to match up that many tiny little socks of all different designs and colors.  I still have a few orphans, but as you can see in the picture about I also now have 95 bona-fide pairs of infant and toddler socks.  As in five pairs away from 100.  As in 190 individual socks, all painstakingly matched up and ready to go to the drawer in Katie-Bug’s wardrobe.  Although, she’s known to pull stuff out of there to play with.  I may get a safety deposit box instead.
