House de Penii

Lots of things in this house mysteriously get "lost." Especially MY stuff, eg my iPod, phone charger, chocolate. This is why I must be cunning.

I bought some socks today .... ladies king size.

But my socks always go "missing" .... end up being found on other peoples feet *COUGH DAVE AND TIM COUGH*

Tim wears everybody's socks ... even Max's. One day he had Rocco's socks on. Tim is seventeen and Rocco is one. Rocco will be seventeen before he can fit into that now-stretched pair.

So .... anytime I want to actually keep something of mine, I must buy it in a hot pink colour. For example, headphones, lunchboxes .... SOCKS.

I bought these babies home today, gleefully showing Tim.

"Look! Mine, all mine. They have assorted colours in the heel. HAH."

Walking past, Tim took one look at them, and without breaking a stride says, "I can wear the blue, purple, red .... oh look there's another blue. You can have the pink."


Tomorrow I'm going to get the frilliest flounciest socks in all the land.


  1. Yeah, you might need to buy those lacy, first communion style ankle numbers. I'd like to see Tim in those.

    I have the opposite problem here.

    Dylan ... who was barely two at the time ... wanted to be a ghost for Halloween. I was thrilled that he took the suggestion I'd planted because I was bucking to recycle a hand-me-down. He had two choices, Ghost or Alligator/Dinosaur. I looked all over for white leggings to go under the gauzey ghost top ...I had to go to the (shhh) girl section, because ... boys don't do leggings. But he's TWO. My big kids had no clue about gender and cloths at that age. While I was dressing him for trick or treat, I confessed quietly to Sofia that the pants were from the girl section. Son-of-a-*****. Don't you know he was listening and had an absolute **** FIT. Good thing I had the alligator in my hip pocket.


  2. You need to buy lacey ones or leopard... then again. I bought leopard and my husband wore them.


  3. Barbie socks. You need Barbie socks.

    Oh, and happy birthday?

  4. Patterned socks...with butterflies!

    Is it your birthday? Happy Birthday!

  5. Is it your birthday?

    Well, then Happy Birthday!!!

  6. Happy Birthday!!

    There may be some socks on here he won't wear...
    or if he does, that's cool too.

  7. I love Tim. You should create a Tim fanclub blog!

    Happy birthday once again my friend!


    (ps, I think those socks are fugly, haha)

  8. I think you need some with ruffles on the ankles...

  9. Ha ha I had Christmas socks with santa on the heel...Caught the Hubby wearing them,,Nothing is sacred nuttin lol

  10. I could get you some seriously girly socks. I love girly socks.
    I have a coworker who had some valentines day socks that said "I'm to sexy for my socks." I almost died laughing at that but I haven't been able to find me a pair yet.
