Just One Thing...



Today is 'Hat Day' at the school.  If the kids at the elementary school bring in $1 for a charity event, they get to wear a hat all day.

My son has a Spiderman hat that he loves to wear, and that's the one he selected for today.

He was so excited about it that he sat out his own clothes last night, a Spiderman shirt, pants w/Spidey on them (even though they're not school pants, I okay'd them this once), and his hat.

This morning after his shower he wanted to get dressed himself. That's a first, usually he wants to dawdle in the morning, so of course I let him.

He did a GREAT job!

Then we got in the car and were driving. I turned around to say something to him, and saw this:


Bwuahahahhahahahahahahhaa...he got dressed perfectly fine, but he got mix-matched socks from the sock basket instead of a matching pair from his chest-of-drawers.

That's funny stuff.  :)

He's a cutie pie and I laughed out loud when I saw the photo of him with the miss matched socks. All kids do that. I love it.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. ☺

My Journey With Candida said...

LOL... how cute he looks in that hat Rosie. Could he be color blind or does he just not care if his socks match.

mail4rosey said...

He didn't give a hoot if his socks matched or not, he just wanted to hit the road so he could get to school w/that hat, lol.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Sandee. Kids make even getting dressed funny. ;)

Kristi Maloney said...

He looks so cute in his hat! The mismatched socks is funny. A day or so ago, my son, 11, got on the bus with one white long sock and one ankle length sock. My husband only noticed as he was getting on the bus. Later when I picked him up, he had that long sock bunched around his ankle so it was hear to tell....but Geeze....you would think he would care about that! lol

Sandy VanHoey said...

Oh my...he is so cute and his eyes I think we'd all love to have....look at those lashes. His hat is just so cute and the socks...too funny. I use to leave my ex's socks when I got upset with him and he is colored blind so this happened with him every so often at a grown age...haha.

mail4rosey said...

I have a friend who's Junior wore two different colored socks on the first day of school, on purpose. lol

mail4rosey said...

I've worn a navy pump and a black pump to work before and no one even noticed (including me) until the end of the day. :)

alissa apel said...

That is funny! At least he dressed himself.

Mica's speedy in the morning and Isaak's SLOW moving.

mail4rosey said...

He was on full speed ahead this morning...he even told me to hurry up. ;)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Your son is adorable Rosey! All he needs to tell everyone is "I am making a fashion statement!" :) I wish you and your family a wonderful weekend.

Julie Maloney said...

Super cute! My son is wearing Spiderman today too!

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Aww, that's adorable. He did a great job!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Judy. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. :)

mail4rosey said...

Spiderman rocks w/the young crowd. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Karen. :)

Jen said...

So cute! :) Love it.

Kristie said...

LOL! Too funny! Reminds me of my little guy. He's gone to school with his pants AND his shirt on backwards before and he ALWAYS puts his boots/shoes on the wrongs feet...doesn't bother him a bit ;-)

Chatty Crone said...

What a happy story - love it! He is a CUTIE! sandie

Suzan Sweatman said...

Too cute lol - my brother did that till he was in his 30's - honestly!!!
Said he didn't get the need to have everything all matchy matchy lmho
Have a great weekend
( and that is one cool spiderman hat )
XOX

mail4rosey said...

Thank you, Gina. :)

mail4rosey said...

He's a silly one, Jen. Not even mildly perturbed about the sock situation. :)

mail4rosey said...

We've had the wrong feet thing, in fact, I think I put them on the wrong feet once, lol.

mail4rosey said...

I told him he looked like a gangster in the hat... he informed me that he doesn't want to look like a gangster! I guess that's a good thing. ;)

mail4rosey said...

The fashion industry would run amuck if boys were allowed to just run wild. ;)

Secondary Roads said...

If I had a hat like that hat, I'd want to wear it all day long. I'd probably even try to sleep in it.

Love the socks. That's individuality and uniqueness.

mail4rosey said...

He sure likes that hat, Chuck. :) Let's hope he doesn't try to sleep in it (I don't put these things past him, you know). ;)

Pat Hatt said...

A big spiderman fan indeed. And LOL at the socks, at least he's original.

Lalaine H said...

how cute is he?
love that they do that for charity...

Jacquelineand.... said...

That is too adorable, and he really did a fabulous job! Heck, I've done the same thing with my socks when dressing whilst half asleep so we can't really fault your handsome wee guy, now can we?

Danni Baird @ Silo Hill Farm said...

I love this! Why is it when little boys put on hats they suddenly look a little older? How cute about the mismatched socks...he's a trendsetter!

mail4rosey said...

or in a big hurry. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, he's a sweetheart. :)

mail4rosey said...

I thought that was a good idea too, even better when I saw all of the kids who were wearing hats today. :)

mail4rosey said...

I've worn two shoes that were the same, but a different color. Someone alerted me at the end of the work day, but no one had noticed until then (not even me). :)

mail4rosey said...

Aaaack, does he look older? I'm not even going to go back and look again. He's been getting way too big too fast lately. I like having a little one around again. :)

Anonymous said...

Adorable he is! Love the hat and the sox are perfectly wonderful ~ They sell mismatched socks ~ ^_^

Thanks for coming by and commenting ^_^

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Hahahaha I love it! His hat is adorable and he looks so cute in it. Hat day was always so much fun!

mail4rosey said...

They do sell them, I've seen them. :) Thanks for stopping over this a'way. :)

Carole said...

He's obviously a fashion leader! Cheers

mail4rosey said...

That's fun that you had hat day. We didn't do any of the theme things way back when I was a student. :)

Renae at simple sequins said...

Oh you are so cute! Yes, Theresa and I in our shoes can rock the joint, for sure. hahahahaha.

I love how schools motive the kids with fun little ideas of donations and privileges. Your sons is so adorable. (hug)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Carole. :)

mail4rosey said...

The school does get creative, I think it's fun. :)

Corinne Schmitt said...

I love that hat. He's part superhero, part dapper young gentleman. Clever idea from the school!

mail4rosey said...

He told me on the drive home this afternoon that it makes him feel like a scientist.

I think he's confused, but I didn't correct him because I'm not sure what he meant. Maybe he did mean scientist for all I know. lol

Cute hat...but love the socks! LOL

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Awww, that's so funny. Socks can be tricky.

Annmarie Pipa said...

he did a great job!!!!

Lizbeth McGow said...

OMG this kid is adorable...look at those lashes!!!wow...Well he can wear a hat for sure! and he did an excellent job dressing himself...for some reason in my house the only person who wears matching socks is my hubs...for the rest of us, there's got to be a sock monster eating 1 of the socks, so I try to match then by color and at least we will be coordinated! Hugs, my friend, Lizy

My kids always have problems with socks also :) Love the hat!

mail4rosey said...

mail4rosey said...

I never even thought to take a look, lol. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks you. :) Loved your new grandbaby post. We have 19 days left here, woo hoo!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Lizy. He didn't even match colors. Ah well, I doubt anyone noticed, and if they did I'm guessing they didn't care (I hope, lol)> :)

mail4rosey said...

I'm headed over, thanks for the visit & the invite. :)

mail4rosey said...

Well at least we're in good company. :)

Ashley said...

hahaha nothing wrong with mismatched socks lol

Love his hat it's too cute!

Joyce Lansky said...

He could probably care less about matching socks. My father-in=law owns a hat store, so this might have been a welcome project.

Marie Moody said...

What a handsome young gentleman he is with his duded hat! But Rosey let me tell you something my 14 yr. old granddaughter told me when I said to her why are you wearing two different socks? That's in NaNee she says! I can't wear the same! I'd be an outcast! OH HEAVEN FORBID! And I handed her a very full bag (of my dust rags), which are all single socks, and told her to have at it! Her face lit up like it was Christmas! bwahahahahahahahahaha So, your little man is in fashion!!!

Linda said...

He looks so cute in his hat!

Jessica Dy said...

Veronica Lee said...

Super cute he is!!! Nothing wrong with mismatched socks!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Ashley. :)

mail4rosey said...

You are oh so correct, he did not mind in the slightest that he had mismatched socks. At least he GOT socks, lol. ;)

mail4rosey said...

One of the best things about kids is they're so easy to make happy. LOL at your granddaughter, that's awesome. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Linda. It's Saturday now and he's putting on his garb so we can play 'detective.' Of course the hat is paramount. ;)

mail4rosey said...

I'm headed over now, thanks Jessica.

mail4rosey said...

I don't think anyone even noticed. At least not enough to mention it. ;)

Raising Reagan said...

That's awesome. I've been spending time with my almost five year old nephew taking care of my sis and he totally wears mismatched socks too. It's so cute!
Love the hat!!

Thanks. I hope all is going well with your sister. :)

Ugochi said...

Good job for a first time. I bet now you can trust him to do it more often.

mail4rosey said...

It wasn't his first time getting dressed himself, just his first time wanting to do it before school.

Usually he is pokey in the morning and wants me to do everything for him. :)

Thanks for your visit!

RACHEL TaoOfPoop said...

I'm sorry but no one was looking at those feet with that adorable lid on his head, so no worries, Mama! ;)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, for having me. :)

mail4rosey said...

Probably. :) I saw a boy in a cute golf beret that same day and if you asked me the color of his socks, I wouldn't have a clue. ;)

Kenya G. Johnson said...

I'm with Rachel (commenter above). I would have missed the socks. He is handSOME - too cool for school!

mail4rosey said...

Says the gal w/an awesomely cute son herself.

Thanks, Kenya. :)

Manzanita said...

It's a sign of genius.

mail4rosey said...

I'm going to go with that, I like it. ;)

Julia Chiang said...

So funny! I love it when the schools do things like this.....we have Wacky day at our school...so he would fit right in with those socks!

Thanks for joining our Show Off Your Blog Party. I'm one of the co-host and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Our kids have hat day every time there is an early release day. They also pay $1 and all the money goes to the PTA.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Julia. My daughter has a Wacky Day and she loves it!

mail4rosey said...

That's brilliant on the part of the PTA. :)

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

Would you believe I have caught my almost 15 year old in the same thing, no excuse there!

mail4rosey said...

lol I would believe it, I've had children that age too. :)

Maria said...

Your son is soo handsome! I LOVE his Spiderman hat! It's so different! And I lol at his two different socks...too cute! You have yourself a sweet little man! Xoxox
Maria

mail4rosey said...

He is a sweetie, Maria, and that boy always makes us laugh, even if he's just getting ready for school. :)

Courtney G said...

Too cute:) My husband does that with his socks still!

Carla said...

He looks awfully cute. If my husband had his way, Elliott would only have two different styles of socks, long white ones for winter, and short white ones for summer. :) As it stands, Elliott is usually the sock matching helper, so he usually does a good job of matching socks. As long as I can convince him to put on clean socks in the morning, it's a win. :)

Theresa said...

My girls actually mismatch their socks on purpose. So, maybe it wasn't an accident? lol.

mail4rosey said...

LOL, Courtney! There's no hope then, I'm afraid. ;)

mail4rosey said...

I have my little one help w/matching too. He was just in a big hurry because it was 'Hat Day,' lol. Your husband's on to something there (w/the two types of socks), I think... :)

mail4rosey said...

He's not trendy yet, so it wasn't a 'cool' thing but he did do it on purpose. He said he was in a hurry. I guess it was faster to raid the sock basket than go to his room and get a matched pair. Silly boy. :)

myshelomitashop said...

Boys! Lol! But he's looking cute and who knows it might put him as a trendsetter :P
