I have officially passed Advanced Laundering 201 as of yesterday evening. Now we had just finished dinner and the boys needed to run around a bit before bed time. They had a brilliant idea. It was dark…why not turn off all of the lights, get flashlights and glow-in-the-dark stars and run around blindly pretending to be nocturnal animals while screaming and giggling and running SMACK into one another at top speed? Why not indeed. The only problem. I had 4 loads of laundry to fold…think, think, think. And so I let them turn off all the lights and I just grabbed my laundry and folded by touch. They rushed about happily (in between minor injuries) for a whole hour and by the moonlight coming through our windows I folded 4 loads of laundry, minus the socks. Hey, you try matching socks in the dark. I did accidentally put one of my shirts into Sweet Boy #1’s stack but other than that all was well. Sweet Boy #1 was a nocturnal turtle, Sweet Boy #2 was a nocturnal salamander, and Sweet Boy #3 was a nocturnal baby salamander/tiger. Or as Sweet Boy #2 stated: “A kind of roaring salamander.” Good times.
I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single book...you're welcome!
