The Laundry That Happened

There are days when a blog post is a riveting account of your adventures.  Trials and tribulations.  Deep thoughts.  Big announcements.  Or anything else that falls under the umbrella category of “interesting content.”

And then there are days like today.  Today was laundry day.  (I should clarify… EVERY day at our house is laundry day.  But today was a day when we piled all the giant pieces of laundry into the car and drove them around a corner and across a street to the local laundromat.)  The big girls were at school.  Kane was at work.  It was Eila and myself, against a mountain of blankets, sheets, duvet covers, towels, and some small purple mystery thing that ended up staining some stuff.

First we had to get there.  Luckily, we have a minivan.

We got there nice and early.  It looked like this.



Inside, Eila looked like this…

Machines looked like this…



Eila helped pick out soap like this…

Kate wore her best bed-head for the occasion…



Eila looks cuter in bed head, but she has less of it.  So… tie?



Our blankets got clean like this…

That’s all the pictures I got.  There was no one to shoot my camera while I was dragging the enormous duvets and comforters that we’d spent the past 2-3 hours getting clean through the muddy puddles on the way to the car.  There must be some better system for that!

But muddy blankets and purple-stayed sheets aside, laundry day happened.  With a toddler.  I call that a success.

I told you this post would be fascinating.

love to all!!!  xoxox

    Memories! I spent my youth going to the laundromat. And Eila looks so beautiful and happy! And your bedhead is lovely as well 😉

    I used to take Kane in his pram to do our laundry. I can still see his little face peeping out of all the surrounding washing. He looked very cozy ☔
