Communal socks?

DH and I were joking about what were we going to do when our soon to be 3 boys(4,2 & in the belly) are all in the same size socks as him. Which by the rate their little feet grow will be before high school.

So does anyone have this issue yet or have you had this issue? Did you label socks? Get different brands? or just go communal?

  • My son and husband are in the same size. My son wears white ankle athletic socks, my husband wears dark, dress socks. They are completely different.

  • My two youngest share socks and underwear. They're the same size, and it makes life so much easier. It'll be that way until they do their own laundry.

  • My girls are 10, 8 and 5 and basically share socks. They kind of each have their own styles (oldest likes no-show or low cut, middle one has ones with bright toes, youngest has the same kind but a smaller size for now). But when they can't find socks in their own drawers they just go into one of the others. They pay almost no attention to who the socks belong to when they put them on. I really don't care as long as they wear them.

  • They used to where the same size so the socks were shared. Now they have different sizes. Each has white socks with different colored toes & heels.
