If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the piles and piles of laundry will disappear all too soon and that you will, to your surprise, miss them profoundly. – Thomas S. Monson

Aww Lawd. Henry woke up early this morning and when I staggered to his room, I was mostly prepared for a sleepy baby, ..mostly mad because he was awake and couldn't find his paci.


..Jumping up and down making all manner of loud squeals. Happy, Happy, Happy!

We stayed up too late watching Duck Dynasty.

Coffee, Breakfast, Laundry. . .

And because he tends to be an active participant in laundry, I generally stick him in the laundry basket while I'm changing loads. ..So he won't climb into the washing machine.

It's true.

One day, I was folding Brandon's t-shirts and I thought Henry was just helping me remove the clothes from the dryer.

I was..startled to turn and see only feet and legs sticking out. He was all up in there. And loving it.


I'm working on prettying up my laundry room. . because I spend a lot of time there.

I'm working on a Tide, Gain and Clorox . . . vignette, if you will.

So I used a free printable and framed that quote for my laundry room, because even when I'm all staggery from no sleep, it reminds me that I need to deeply appreciate the baby in the hamper.

Henry says, "Hey!" and seems to embrace my chevron phase.


  1. Where's the picture of Henry in the washing machine!?

    I dig your chevron phase too.

  2. Ahh.. I never get the good pics.

    ..And good. I think it's here to stay. For a while. And otherwise, you'd probably be nauseous when you come to visit.
