Is it just me or do all little boys only get one wear out of each pair of socks?

I'm sorting laundry right now. Both boys went through a bag each of brand new socks this week. Every pair is hopelessly stained and look filthy. I just put them through a super wash cycle in hot water, bleach, and detergent on heavy with an extra rinse. They came out of the dryer with all the weed seeds even still stuck to the sides.

Are there disposable socks?


  1. Oh my! I am so feeling you!!! The sock situation in our house is OUT OF CONTROL! ;)

    My boys can easily work their way through 3 pairs of clean socks a day & brand new socks come out of the wash looking like years-old pass me downs. What is the answer? I'm excited to read any comment you get - & am quietly relieved that it isn't just us ;)

  2. I don't do socks in the summer - we all wear sandles or canvas shoes and no socks!!! And i ignore the 2 huge baskets full of odd socks that I have been promising myself i will sort out in the summer because I won't be stressing over needing them until september and in september i'll ditch the lot and buy every person 14 pairs of new socks. I do it every year!!! But I am a slob!!
