My son is relatively new to this whole walking thing, and sometimes he slides on our wannabe Pergo floors if he’s wearing socks. Usually, socks made for babies/toddlers come with treads on the bottom to help kids avoid this problem, but Mini’s feet (to which Mr. Right-Click affectionately refers as “boats,” e.g. “the S.S. Mini,” and its sister ship, the “S.S. Moo”) are too large to fit into baby socks at this point. This tip to use puffy paint on the bottom of the socks to create treads (stolen from parent hacks a while back) has saved us from a host of falls. The best part? Personalizing the bottoms with sayings and/or sweet nothings for your little one.
Slip Sliding Away
