Danish Kindergarten

Please, anyone parents out there?
Anyone who’s done the same??

If you don’t know what are those “blue socks” about, in Denmark –

schools ( Daycare, Kindergarten, Elementary school, ) prepare those “blue plastic socks” for parents. When the weather is shitty, rainy and muddy, we, parents should put those on over our shoes when we enter school.   – in order to keep school clean! 🙂

The problem is…. we, parents are always busy. Our heads are full of million minds.  I take Z to kindergarten, undress him, walk into a room, make sure he isn’t unhappy, then after his permission – I can finally leave.   On my way home i go grocery shopping, think about what to cook for dinner, about my blog ideas, etc etc …..

then I forget!!!!!!

I forget that I was wearing blue socks, all the way to SuperBrugsen ( Danish grocery store) at casher’s line.

Danish people stare me, “strange asian.”

But the most difficult part is that I don’t know how to react myself after finding out.

  • ops! I’m so stupid…haha… (take them off immediately, put them in backpack?
  • stay calm, walk out the store then take them off
  • screw it, walk home with them.

I am embarrassed that I don’t know what to do. Awkward atmosphere indeed.

    Danish parent here. Take them off and laugh. Every danish parent know that you just forgot to take them off at kindergarten and have done the same thing
