The Strange Case of Lost Socks

A quick trip round the shops today. Only a couple of things to get. So being the proud Daddy I just carried #BabyPink in my arms.

Quick whizz around Tesco. Into Dealz and a short walk across the road to Specsavers.

After booking in my eye test and confirming the youngest lads Tottenham glasses were in. There was a short walk back to the car.

Now bear in mind throughout this whole expedition #BabyPink had been on my shoulder the whole time fast asleep.

Not a whimper or movement out of her.

Imagine my surprise then, when putting her into her car chair to see one bare foot.

A quick check on the path between the car and Specsavers, no sock. A look inside the shop. No sock.

I wasn't retracing all my footsteps. #BabyPink getting a bit heavy and my arms were still sore from shovelling concrete all day yesterday.

Where did the sock go? How did it fall off? Why didn't I notice?

This is not the first time this has happened. Her brother was well known for losing socks and shoes. Never a set. Just one of them.

Does your little one regularly lose things when out and about with no explanation?

Have you found baby socks and shoes when out shopping? Is there a pint sized thief stealing single socks and shoes?

Maybe I'll have to tie a piece of elastic from one sock to the other and feed it up the trouser legs. Like my mother had to do with my mittens.


  1. That is too funny! That actually sounds like a great invention though, I also have a hard time keeping track of socks!
