In my house the sock monster or rather monsters are my kids. For some reason they like to wear my socks! It drives me INSANE! Have you seen little boys socks, ugh!!! I go to look for socks and I have none...ok, I do have socks, lots of socks so I should specify that I can't find my ankle socks. The boys know better than to touch my Nightmare Before Christmas socks or any of my other socks that fall into that same category. But they quite enjoy wearing all my ankle/sport socks. I'm not big on color on my ankle socks so I buy the white ladies socks. Grrrr, I'll glance down at the boys dingy socks and realize that they are wearing the ones that belong to me. I finally had to break down and buy socks that have pink on them with hopes of keeping the boys stinky feet out of them. I greatly dislike anything pink (unless it's for Breast Cancer Awareness) so this is a huge thing for me. Sigh* I'll let you know if it works!
