Let’s talk about baby socks.
Apparently I have high expectations when it comes to baby socks.
I would like them to:
1) Stay on
2) Stay on
and most importantly,
3) Stay on
What can I say, when I’m looking for baby socks, I aim high.
Over the course of Aria’s first 6 months of life, we tried every kind of sock brand. Hanes, Carters, Gerber, Trumpette, Circo, Miniwear and every single store brand imaginable. Nothing worked. Some were slightly better than others. But no matter the brand, unless she wore shoes, they would slip off her feet while rolling around.
Why is it that something so seemingly simple ends up being so complicated?!
Then for Christmas, in her stocking, Santa (aka, Grandma) gave her some MAGIC socks. Socks that had the power to stay on. Socks that did everything no other socks could do.
And then I knew which socks they were. The only socks I had yet to try. And when I went to Walmart late one night, and found a bin full of them what did I do? I bought three more packs.
Two months later, when we decided we needed more socks (since we all know socks tend to get eaten by the dryer) it figures that I couldn’t find them ANYWHERE.
At first I was convinced that Walmart had discontinued them. Then, yesterday I found a huge display that they belonged on. The display had tons of the 0-6 month size, and some 3T – 5T. But the huge middle section? The massive area where all the hook tags read “6-18 months”? EMPTY. Every single hook. At least 30 hooks.
Maybe it was just this Walmart. That’s what you’re thinking, right?
Uh huh. Well, after telling my Mum about it, she checked out four more Walmarts.
What the hell is going on?
Did everyone figure out that these were like the best socks in existence?
And could no one have spared one single freaking pack for me?
