Am I the only one who struggles with Mount Laundry? I intentionally leave my laundry on the couch to encourage me to do it. Unfortunately, I end up sitting on top of it and and relaxing instead of actually do it. Of course, when people come over the laundry moves to the bed, then back to the couch, then on the floor, then back into the washer because I can’t tell what’s clean and what’s dirty. Here is my laundry process.
Step One: Wait Until the Laundry Pile is the Size of a Mountain
I do all laundry in one day. I make sure to wash every thing I own so my clean clothes pile comes up to my chest.
Step Two: Find Motivation
I get so overwhelmed by the mountain that I have to find something to help inspire me. Ice cream, movies, music, whatever I can reward myself with after my task is done!
Step Three: Begin Folding
I make my beautiful piles folded neatly and stacked high!
Step Four: Avoid The Helpers
Note: Pictures are not staged
I watch as my beautiful piles are completely destroyed by the sweet offspring.
Repeat Steps Three and Four 500 Times
Each time I cry a little more
The Finally Step
I break open my ice cream early and save the laundry for another day. Honestly, folding the laundry is my biggest challenge. It is mundane, bores me to death, and I can’t focus on it. At this point, I just sit on it top of it all and call it my throne. Have you learned any tips doing laundry with young children? Leave me a comment below!
