Wow, it’s been awhile huh? Yup, it’s the other mom, the other half of the ‘oh so fabulous’ duo. I don’t generally have time to write, ( as I sit here, NOT making lunch for any of these starving children) or at least I usually feel like I have nothing interesting to say. You moms out there know exactly what I do all day long. Who wants to hear about dirty diapers, tantrums, and endless loads of laundry? Right?
Ok, I have a stupid question to ask…do any of you know how much laundry a family of ten produces? Do you? Well I can tell you this much..most of the time the growing monster of a pile at the bottom of my basement stairs is as tall as I am. (I’m 5’4, unless I’m yelling at a child, and then I’m 7ft and have fangs. Just ask them.) Add to that, we have a child who has some issues with night-time and emptying his bladder. He can’t wear underjams or any of those kinds of things. We get him up to go before we go to bed. I’d say about 80% of the time, it doesn’t help. Also, the others who are not night-time trained ( yet) sometimes have leaks. So before I even start on the regular laundry, sometimes I have two loads of sheets, etc to do first. Occasionally I get lazy and only do 2 or 3 loads for few days. When that happens, the monster gets fruitful and multiplies into 2 or 3 piles.
Well today, for the first time in a looong time, I raise my fist and yell ‘ YES! I did it! I conquered the monster! May he be banished forevermore!’
HA. Well, until tomorrow, anyway. Yeah, I know. Small victories amuse small minds, or something to that effect. Ok, I’m about to get my arm gnawed off if I don’t feed them soon…
