I have officially passed Advanced Laundering 201 as of yesterday evening. Now we had just finished dinner and the boys needed to run around a bit before bed time. They had a brilliant idea. It was dark…why not turn off all of the lights, get flashlights and glow-in-the-dark stars and run around blindly pretending to be nocturnal animals while screaming and giggling and running SMACK into one another at top speed? Why not indeed. The only problem. I had 4 loads of laundry to fold…think, think, think. And so I let them turn off all the lights and I just grabbed my laundry and folded by touch. They rushed about happily (in between minor injuries) for a whole hour and by the moonlight coming through our windows I folded 4 loads of laundry, minus the socks. Hey, you try matching socks in the dark. I did accidentally put one of my shirts into Sweet Boy #1’s stack but other than that all was well. Sweet Boy #1 was a nocturnal turtle, Sweet Boy #2 was a nocturnal salamander, and Sweet Boy #3 was a nocturnal baby salamander/tiger. Or as Sweet Boy #2 stated: “A kind of roaring salamander.” Good times.

Kristin, that is awesome! I can just imagine how much fun they had, and what a generous, kind, and superbly talented mom you are to give them that time while you folded laundry in the dark! By the way, I’m glad the roaring salamander was at your house last night, not mine… I’m not sure I’d like to run into one of those in the dark folding laundry… 😉
