Sock hop

The weekly wacky lesson plan fun continues, with today's activity being sock dancing. Pretty straightforward, right? Possibly a recipe for disaster, given that the classroom has linoleum flooring and toddlers aren't the most coordinated bunch, but still, clear in its intent.

In the spirit of sock dancing, we were instructed to send Mary Clare to school in silly socks. Silly socks, like wacky Wednesdays, are also rarely experienced around the TB household. But I did what I could, and dug out a pair of red polka dotted socks. The colors of her outfit somewhat matched, but people, there were polka dots next to flower print pants, and I don't know about you, but where I'm from, that is downright silly.

Chip, of course, did not agree.

C: That's it? Those are the silliest socks we have? 
D: Yes, Chip. These are silly.
C: You know, if I were in charge of dressing her, people would know when it's silly sock day.
D: And people would call DCFS.
C: You bet they would. The Department of Cool and Funny Socks.


  1. Haha, sorry, but I have to agree with Chip on this one. The really weird socks are the toe socks with individual toes. :) (They're also kind of creepy.)

  2. I laughed out loud at Chip's comeback...and I thought you were the witty one at TB:-)

  3. Oh, Kara. Don't encourage him. He reads this, you know.

  4. Oops, sorry! Chip, you are not funny (at all) "wink, wink".

  5. Score one for Chip. Excellent response.
