Lets talk about Laundry
Sometimes the thought of doing Laundry is not something I like to think about. I don't mind sorting, and stain treating, and washing and drying. I don't even mind folding since it feels like a free ticket to watch TV. And I have a system so that I know which clothes go into which piles. Every piece of clothing, socks, and panties is marked with a flower for Lily, a heart for Meilynn and a star for Emma. This system started when we adopted Meilynn. Emma and Meilynn were only two and could not read so we marked everything with a heart or star. We think Jilliana's symbol will be a happy face. It has to be something easy and quick when you have to mark all of those little socks.
The part of the laundry that I despise is putting the clothes away! We live in a two story house. So that does not add to the fun of laundry. The good news is that now all three girls are old enough to put away their own clothes!!!!!
If I wash one to two loads a day I can keep up, but I usually do three to four loads every other day. The only thing I am not looking forward to is the laundry when we get home from China! Ugggg!, but I am looking forward to washing those new little clothes.
