~ Don’t Waste Your Life Matching Socks ~

Last week I read the wonderfully warm and fuzzy quip: “Life is too short to waste it matching socks,” and thought it was sage advice, indeed.  I offered it up to my Varmint, who at the tender age of 11 is beginning to pay attention to things like that.

But my sweet Varmint spent quite a bit of time doing the exact opposite for her basketball game today.

Literally, she spent more time trying to find mismatched socks than she would have finding matched ones.  And I know some of her team mates did the same thing.

I totally get her strategy:  Baffle the opponent.  Totally understand.  No need to explain….

…..because that is the exact same strategy I use parenting.
