Why do socks end up on the floor?

Can anyone answer this mysterious question for me? I would love to know why kids do this. And I am pretty sure that when I was a kid, I did the exact same thing. Why oh why even when it is cold out, the socks still come off when they get home while I have socks and slippers on and I am baking a baby so I am not exactly cold.

It is just one of those that I don't understand but would like to figure out why it is so hard to take the socks off and put them in the laundry hamper or even the basket in the laundry room where I stick the dirty kitchen towels. Did I mention that the laundry room is where all the shoes are and coats and bags?

Any explanations? Anyone with similar experiences. And you don't have to limit it to your children. wink wink.


  1. What I hate is when one comes through the wash, and the mate doesn't because it is shoved under a bed, or a chair, or God only knows where!

  2. Ah, yes. Neither me, nor either of the kids, like to wear socks. I don't care that it's cold (and by cold, I don't mean Las Vegas cold, I mean Chicago cold). My children learn from me that socks just suck. So, I'm the leader of the sock sucking pack in my house! :)
