When I had my kids, I never imagined I would spend so much of my time doing laundry. Sorting laundry, washing laundry, folding laundry, putting all the little things back in the little drawers. I did two loads of laundry today and three loads yesterday. That wouldn’t have been so bad, but I did four loads the day before that. Do you ever feel like you’re perpetually stuck in the laundry room?
You all may have thought I boarded the crazy train when I made my own natural toothpaste. Maybe this is even “crunchier” for you, maybe less so. I made my own natural, DIY borax-free laundry detergent this week! I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, but I kept putting it off because I thought it would be a lot of hard work. Making my own laundry soap was actually really easy.
Oh, the days when we could hop in the car, drive for an hour and arrive at our family’s holiday celebration. Those were the days. Life was so simple. The holidays were so easy. This will be the second year that we’re taking a 5-7 hour road trip (depending on traffic, weather and baby) to spend two weeks living out of a suitcase, splitting time between families and friends. We’re holiday nomads.
My dad recently mentioned to me that I’m doing laundry every time he visits – for the entire time he’s here. He doesn’t only come on my laundry days and, since we live in different states, he is here for more than a short visit. He’s right. I do A LOT of laundry.
It’s amazing how little it takes these days for me to feel like Superwoman! C was content long enough for me to pump while he sat by me in his Boppy. Then he hung out in his swing while I did dishes, changed the load of laundry and then made myself look presentable for the day. I even fixed myself a snack before he started to fuss! Breastfeeding makes me SO hungry.
Today, I’m trying my best to resist the urge to wash all of the baby clothes in preparation for his arrival. After all, it is February 3rd and I’m not due until April. Hopefully I won’t have this urge too often, otherwise I might end up washing his clothes more than once in the next couple of months!
