Attack of the Laundry MonsterOn July 1, 2016 by Makingmoms
OMG! Why does it seem like the laundry pile never goes down? Especially with 2 active girls and of course myself. My husband always asks me why I have so much more clothes than he does at the end of the day? Really?
Well…being a full-time stay-at-home Mom I am lucky to get through my day in just one outfit. I usually change 2 – 3 times, because my 3 years old will spill milk, paint, glue or anything else she can get her hands on. Now my 1-year-old is so sweet and loves to cuddle so she gets her boogers, drools, food or whatever she has her hands in. Not to mention I am accident prone and spill a variety of things myself. This has led to an abundance of clothing needing to be washed.
This has never happened before but…I fell a bit behind, causing a backlog of laundry. I am not talking about 1-2 loads that are now 3-4 I am talking over 8 loads now that need washing. Where in the world am I gonna find time with 2 girls to do 8 loads of laundry? It is hard enough to remember to go to the basement and swap loads. I cannot put to words how much I hate doing laundry but it has to be done. I prefer my husband to come home and spend time with his girls then do housework (not to say that he doesn’t, he’s cleaner than me).
Unfortunately at this point, I didn’t have a choice in him helping me, but after a few loads, I realized how nice my break had been and decided I wasn’t quite doing. So I left the entire backlog to my amazing husband, who didn’t mind because he felt like he was making a point. The point is he could do all the laundry within a day. Unbeknownst to him, I was just happy I didn’t have to do it! LOL Oh, and it took 2 days!
