Shhhhh…. I’m going to tell you a secret!
Well ok it isn’t much of a secret since some of you commented about it on last week’s Real Life Wednesday post, and I hadn’t even noticed till you said… but anyway….
Here’s my terrible mother secret….
My children rarely wear matching socks.
Actually I hardly ever wear matching socks either.
Yep, that’s right, I have given up trying to pair socks and just let them all roam free together in the drawer. We just pick out two random socks and put them on. How rebellious are we?
If I manage to find two similar socks then that is a boon. Two stripey socks are definitely a ‘pair’ in this house, even if one is red and the other blue!
The girls have a drawer full of ‘white socks’ for school, so they at least look like they are paired, though sometimes they go off to school with one sock longer than the other… oh well.
I do try to keep some pairs together, for those occasions when my children’s sock feet will be on public display, but for the most part I don’t bother.
There are just too many other more important things to worry about, and nine times out of ten no one even notices that our socks don’t match… and if they do, well that’s just real life in our family!
What is real life like at your place?
I’m so excited to see you all linking up and sharing your real life!
I loved this post from Critters and Crayons about a frazzled Mum and Nun and a public fart!
And this ‘LAME’ post from Crash Test Mummy is a cracker.. I love it when people can laugh at themselves.
If your life is full of those crazy little things that are so ‘real’ they are ‘unreal’, the things that make you laugh, because if you didn’t laugh you’d cry, those every day things… please join in and link up.
