My Boys in Motion…Teaching Life Skills While They’re Too Young to Protest — 5 Comments

  1. Ahhh…laundry. Sadly, I love laundry. I love the clean smell, the freshness, and who ever invented Oxi Clean and Shout Color Wipes should be given a medal!

    It’s so hard to enjoy doing something that you really don’t want to do!! For me, it’s cleaning the bathroom. Ugh.

    • I don’t think that’s sad at all! Good grief, there’s so much of it to do–if you can enjoy it that’s awesome. The best I find I can do it turn on some music and try to pray or zone out while I’m folding. That’s the part that gets me the most. The folding and putting away. It seems so…pointless. Just like mopping our floor. The kids have usually spilled on it before it’s even completely dry. I could mop 3 times a day for the rest of my life and I would still never recommend using the 5 second rule in our house! 🙂

  2. I love clean laundry and I get excited when I find a new product that makes the job easier! I don’t mind sorting, washing, and drying clothes: it’s the folding that trips me up.

    I never heard that stacking the washer and dryer would cause problems, but that’s very interesting. With the configuration of our laundry room, stacking is not an option, so we’ve never looked into it.

    And yes, one-on-one time with our kids is important and special–even if we’re doing laundry. When my son was little, he wanted to do everything alongside me. Now he’s 13 and … well, enough said. 😉

  3. Stopping by from Boys in Motion. Sigh…for the first time in 6 years don’t have a front loader. Maybe in the next house….I read your about page. I lived in NoVA from 2000-2005. 😉
