Baby socks

The girls are always pulling off Penny’s socks. They think it’s hilarious. Penny likes it too. She squeals whenever they do it. It drives me nuts because they run and throw them somewhere and then can never remember where they are. I have a lot of single socks waiting for their match to come home.

Today, I decided to outsmart them and not put socks on her. They can’t take them off if they aren’t there.

As I was hanging up clothes in their room, I heard Penny squealing and the girls laughing. As I went to investigate, Samantha yelled, “Run, Ella! Run!”

I was passed in the hall by Ella, carrying a pair of little pants and a diaper. Penny was lying on the carpet, kicking and smiling, naked from the waist down.

I am currently missing one pair of pants and one dirty diaper. Tomorrow, Penny will be wearing socks.

    I just love the picture of the little plump feet in the vanishing socks.

    Did you ever find the used nappy ?

    That was just a cute laugh, envisioning them taking off her diaper and leaving her in her birthday suit. Sweet story.

    This is hilarious and probably a sign of things to come for me (I have a one and two year old). Stopping in from the Red Dress Club!

      Oh yes, they will soon start scheming. It can be kind of amusing to watch it develop until you realize what they’ve done. Thanks for stopping by!

    How funny! I only have boys and I don’t think they have ever tried to undress each other in any way.

  13. What an adorable story! Yes, wearing socks might be a better idea!

    It was a great ending.

    I saw all the comments and I thought “this cannot be as funny as they say.”


    I laughed so hard I almost splurted wine out of my nose. (I mean water. Water out of my nose. Whoever drinks on a Monday night?)

    I wanna write like you when I’m big! :D

    Oh, I just can’t click away from that picture. Those wonderful roly poly legs and feet.

    Adorable sweet post, truly just heart warming. The pic is the icing on the cake.


  1. […] know the missing socks sometimes occur because my girls like to mess around and leave the socks all over the place for me to find months […]
