I'm going to start keeping a pair of socks in the car for each of my boys for impromptu stops at indoor playgrounds.
Most indoor playgrounds require socks. I love this rule. But today I had to violate it because we stopped at McD's unexpectedly and the boys had sandals on. So off they went into the germ factory, shoeless and sockless. Ewwww! Yes, I know you seasoned moms out there are thinking I need to relax since boys' feet do come clean. But I have years to work on that. Just let me have my phobia, mmm-k?
So I'm going to start stashing an extra pair of socks in the car, even in the cooler months when they wear sneakers most of the time. Even if they're wearing socks, the socks take a beating and putting their shoes on over them is yucky.
I suppose this is a first: posting a Works for Me Wednesday tip that I haven't actually tried. But I know that extra socks in the car WILL Work for Me! (And so would playgrounds requiring gloves as well.)
