Laundry Day!

Ok before you judge... please note that all clothing, sheets, towels, etc.. are all clean - I just HATE to fold laundry, remember this post? So since we have a relatively spacious laundry room and an active mobile 8 month old... and I already have the predisposition to HATE folding laundry... the following occurs.


Yes, I know it's T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E! But to be honest, I know that it will happen again in a few weeks and we'll once again wonder know exactly where all our clothes are... in front of the dryer. :-) So since yesterday was a very rainy day and with the swine flu being all around us, I didn't want to take Little Man out to museums, etc.. and at the mall I have no impulse control for a "good deal" I decided it was a good day to tackle the monster in the laundry room. I locked the cats downstairs and got to work with my little helper. As you can see he had a lot of fun... um helping.
He helped me spread out the sheet for easier folding, he pushed and condensed piles for me. He flattened piles that were nearing their maximum heights. He sampled (and pulled out) the stings. Very helpful!


We managed to get all folded... and refolded and put away by the end of the day. Also by the end of the day, I had two more piles waiting to be folded. Siiigh... it will never end.

Hello, new bloggy buddy! You win, you win! :) Thanks for coming by my blog today. Your son is so adorable and I do not like folding laundry, either! It culminates on my bed during the day and if I ever want to go to bed I have to fold it first (I'm so sneaky, huh?) Have a great day!

Ok girl... if you didn't have enough clothes to cloth a third world country your mountains might not be sooooooo large. :-)

PS It is not my fault you are a clothes collector..

hmm, that is what my room looks like. But

a. I don't have a kid
b. I'm not sure whether all the clothes are clean...

I think it's time to tidy up. :D

oh and btw, how cute is your kid?! :)

"folded and refolded" - I love that.

I would have had a mild heart attack if my daughter would have pulled out the strings...no amount of patience could be mustered up to get that back in. I'd have to buy new! :)

Oh, how I can relate to the "mound" of laundry that needs to be folded! Isn't that the worst?!? (Especially when you have little ones at home?!?)

Visiting from SITS :)

That it too adorable. I think I have pictures like this of him sitting in the midst of a pile of laundry. Laundry and groceries are my two most hated chores! Happy FB DAY!
