Not only is he obsessed with his own foot wear, he is very concerned about other peoples foot wear. I like to go around barefoot if possible. This completely throws Pookie for a loop. He will go into my room and either get my slippers or find a pair of socks, then bring them over to me. Pookie will proceed to shove the slippers at me and insist that I put them on my feet. You can see him getting agitated if you are not wearing something on your feet.
I think this whole thing is hilarious He seems to have inherited some sock quirks from my side of the family. My middle brother is fanatical about seams in his socks. They drive him nuts. Plus, the socks have to be just so, otherwise he starts to have issues. Then there is my mom, she hates bare feet. She doesn't like the feeling of different textures from the floor / ground on her feet. She even wears socks with her sandals. Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with wearing socks with sandals, but that look wouldn't be my first choice. Although, I think at this point in her life, comfort trumps anything else. It will be interesting to see where Pookie's sock obsession takes him.
