I am serious. Some days all three of them come home, take off their shoes and each one of them has at least one sock with a hole in it. Sometimes both socks. Sometimes all three kids.
Is it because I am buying the $1 a pair super-cheap socks because of the sheer volume we go through in a year? (do the math: 3 boys then multiply that by every tight-fitting pair of shoes, winter boots, hockey skates…you get the picture) I confess to buying cheap socks in extraordinary volume.
But worse yet, I have also bought them the $18 pair! Yes! Thinking: a) they are so cute; b) they match the outfit and c) maybe they'll last. I'll save you the $18 – they don't really last longer than the cheapies.
