The other night I was finally getting around to folding the laundry that had been piled up on the love seat at the foot of my bed when it happened.
I know I should have been more prepared for it. I mean, there had been warning signs leading up to this point but I must have ignored them.
I went to put my sons white socks in his pile and my white socks in my pile when I realized I had mixed them up.
Because they were so close to the same size.
When did this happen??? How did this happen??? It cannot be possible that my little boy has feet that are almost as big as mine and will very soon surpass mine in size.
