Load After Load of Laundry

Lately it seems as though there has just been load after load of laundry. I've felt overwhelmed and literally buried in it!

When Laura and Brady were only a few months old, they, like most babies vomited a lot. Laura especially. She was the type of baby who had  to be burped every couple of ounces. If you didn't burp her enough she would vomit and be so fussy due to gas. Brady on the other hand, he could drink almost all of his bottle and was fine. Either way, at the time they went through at least a couple of outfits a day. I though I felt overwhelmed by laundry then.

Strange thing, is now that Laura and Brady are older there seems to be even more laundry. Last week it felt like either my husband or myself were doing at least one load of laundry per day. We used to be quite good with our laundry, it would be washed, dried, folded and put away all in the same day. With the exception of my husband's clothes as he for some reason refuses to put them away.

Now, for whatever reason, the laundry isn't getting put away until the following day. Whether we've gotten sidetracked or forgot about it, at least one load of laundry is always left overnight. By the end of that following day there is already, at least two small loads of laundry. It's like their is never no laundry to be done.

I miss those days of a couple of loads per week, rather than 1 load per day. I guess the leap in loads is to be expected when a house goes from 2 members to 4. At least as Laura and Brady grow so do their clothes. I remember how excited I was when I first started receiving all of the cute clothes for them. Organizing their dressers, sorting through clothes. Now, it seems like the small clothes never end. Especially with the amount of small clothes you can fit in per load.

Oh well at least it's a new week. With that week means new loads of laundry though :)

  1. Oh, I so understand. I got caught up and am currently buried again. Hang in there. I think it will get easier when they are all old enough to do their own. :) Janae

  2. New follower. I understand the laundry whoes. It seems that the clothes piles grow overnite. I have found that with my almost 15 year old that she has a tendency to throw clean clothes in the dirty. I told her that I was going to start putting the clothes that I found in a bag and would get rid of them. So she is doing a tad bit better.

  7. OMG I have boy/guirl twins too and IT NEVER ENDS. I just got done doing about 4 loads and got it put away to find out there were 3 more to do. These two tiny people have so many clothes. I use towels twice, PJs twice and jeans at least twice and were still always 2 loads behind.

    Glad Im not alone. Im following you now, cant wait to hear more stuff that I know without a doubt I can relate to.

  8. I agree with everyone, once they're old enough to do their own it will be easier. Many years to go before then though! LOL! :)

  12. Even with only two people the laundry never seems to end. You have my sympathy for doing for 4 people.

  16. We SHOULD be doing a load of laundry a day with our 3 person family, but we wait until we go to the laundromat and we do a crapton of laundry in one shot. Can't wait to change this.... although I so couldn't imagine the addition of 2 babies at the same time and it's effect on laundry. That'd be a little overwhelming!
