Toddler Sock Buying: Rocket Science?

Seriously, I had no inkling how frustrating this particular endeavor would be. Liam and I set out for Buy Buy Baby this morning in search of socks. He has a drawer-full of infant socks that are either too small or too easy to get off. I found one six-pack of plain whites that were marked “9 – 18 months”, which turned out to be way too small. I found some organic cotton socks for $5 a pair. $5 a pair! For infant socks! Give me a break! Then I found the official boys sock section, where I pawed through socks marked with shoe size, sock size, and baby age, all the while inspecting a complicated chart to figure out exactly where Liam fit. To complicate matters, each brand has their own standard for actual size. I found one sock at Marshalls marked “toddler shoe size 3 – 7.5” that were clearly way too big. Size 3 – 7.5? Isn’t that a pretty big margin? Finally, I found a decent selection at Old Navy, and they were only a dollar a piece. I bought both 6-12 months and 12-24 months, just to hedge my bets. And I bet correctly – the smaller size fits perfectly, and he’ll grow into the bigger size soon enough. It only took me all afternoon, sheesh!
