Mommy believes in being kind and saying nice things to others. It has always been her philosophy that if you have nothing nice to say that you not say anything at all. That doesn’t mean that sometimes things aren’t said that shouldn’t. When it comes to kids, kind words of encouragement can really make a big difference in their lives. When given the chance to review socks from notes to self I was positively delighted. Here was a company making a difference one sock at a time. After all words do make a difference.
Notes to Self was started by Laura Schmidt who wanted to put her belief in the power of positive thinking into action and on people’s feet. They all have positive affirmations that we say to ourselves to build confidence to train our minds. They work on the subconscious, which is the most receptive early in the morning and late at night. At those times, notes to self products are there, improving your thoughts, your actions, and your performance…assisting you in creating the life of your dreams.
Each member of our family received a pair of socks and I have to say that mine really stood out. You may not see daddy’s in the picture but his said “I am a great dad”. My big brother Kyle’s read “I am amazing”, Mommy’s said “I am a great mom”, Krxssy’s said “I am strong” and Mikael’s read “I am awesome”. For those who don’t know, Mikael is autistic and doesn’t articulate well. He is also teased in school because of his disability. This simple pair of socks really meant a lot to him. Not just hearing from us that he was awesome, but having something on his feet to remind him every day that he was, was really “awesome”.
Now you’re wondering why mine stood out. It’s because it said that “I am smart”.
When you’re feeling down, having something that speaks positively to you is something that I’m all for. There are quite a few phrases to choose from and I would suggest not just getting one but a few pairs, for not just yourself but your family and friends as well. Telling your little one that they are smart everyday, letting them see it on their feet reaffirms that they are indeed smart. It’s not just on the toes of your feet but on the bottom of your socks as well. I AM SMART!
Now these socks aren’t your cheap run of the mill socks. These are very high quality socks. Each have arch support, yes even mine and breathable mesh. They are made with 64% cotton, 28% nylon, 5% polyester and 3% spandex so they have a little bit of stretch in them. They are all machine washable and it’s recommended not to use softener. Best of all they were all made right here in the good ole USA. I’ve decided to include their size chart so you can see for yourself that there’s something for everyone!
|Sock Size||Shoe Size|
|Infant||Infant 3 mo-12 mo||3 mo-12 mo|
|5-7 Kids||XS||9 – 12½ (kids)|
|7-9 Youth||S||12½ – 5 (kids)|
|9-11 Adult||M||6 – 9 (women)
4½ – 8 (men)
|10-13 Adult||L||9½– 12 (women)
8½ – 12 (men)
|13-15 Adult||XL||12 – 16 (men)|
I highly recommend getting these amazing socks and they certainly get my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!
