When I was a child, my most loathed chore was folding clothes. I could sit under a mound
of towels for hours. I. HATED. IT. But, now as an adult, it almost gives me a free pass to sit down and watch something on TV. So, I don’t mind it as much……that is as long as I can finish it!
I hate to spend the time folding everything and then have some of it still sitting there, staring at me…..taunting me that I am still not done! Sometimes this occurs because I do it after the kids are in bed and don’t want to wake them by putting their clothes away.
But more annoying than that is those lone socks. You know the ones…..they never come out in even pairs…..you think for sure that you had this one’s mate in yesterday’s load of laundry, only to find that some (MALE) person in your house threw the single socks back into the mix (because he didn’t know what else to do with them) and here they are again!
“Is this sock the same one, or is it the mate to that one? HOW DO I KNOW?!”
So, I was approached by a friend to come and check out a new Children’s Book called The Sock Spot. I picked it up and sat down with the boys to read it to them. THEY LOVED IT!
It’s a story of a little boy named Roman, who keeps his socks very organized, until a meddling puppy gets one and heads outside. In his search, to find his missing sock, he encounters some very interesting friends around his home and backyard. It’s really a cute story and my boys both ask me to read it again weekly!
The book comes in a very nice box and includes your very own Sock Spot with clips featuring each of the characters that Roman meets. The kids LOVED these and grabbed up all the spare socks that were sitting in the basket and pinned them up immediately.
So, now, when I am done folding laundry and have leftover socks, I go to our “Sock Spot” on the freezer door, next to the dryer and check for their mates, or pin them up to wait for their mates to come and find them!
