I have a pile of folded, line dried clothes in our room waiting to be put away. There's three in our family as well, and I can usually get enough clothes together for one load. Wait a day, and I've got three loads.

I grew up with a brother, and I well remember how every day was some sort of wash day. Darks, whites, linens, towels, and teh cycle would start over again.

Today, I love to hang my clothes out an the clothes line. I never had that growing up, and I look forward to the time of year when I can hang out the clothes and let the sun work it's magic. And when it's windy, like today, no time at all those clothes are dry and ready to be folded.

I am so thankful that with our family of five, our washer and dryer are in a small closet off of the kitchen. No schlepping it up and down stairs or to a laundromat for me!

The thing with our family is this: I'm forever washing and drying already clean laundry. Shirts that have been knocked off of their hangers end up in the laundry. Clothes that were picked over and decided against end up in the laundry. I don't know how many socks - still paired - end up in the laundry!

Each of our three kids have at LEAST 25 shirts and 15 pairs of pants. There have been several occasions where, three days after laundry was completely washed, dried, and put away, that there were NO CLOTHES AT ALL left in our five year old's drawers. None! And now his three year old sister is taking after him.

It's gotten to the point where the kids are no longer allowed in their own dressers. LOL

Yep, laundry is an endless cycle.

Ah, laundry. I never minded it much myself, though I have been ever so grateful my husband has taken to the task since Liam was born. I used to refold my clothes, as I wasn't a fan of how he folded shirts. But then I learned to pick my battles, so to speak, and now I actually like my shirts folded his way. Quite frankly, I'm just grateful to have him help out. Laundry is never ending. When the baskets are empty and the dressers full, I almost feel liberated - for five minutes. ;o).

Three kids and a husband here...but all it takes is the one daughter. She is a clotheshorse! A girly tomboy - wants to run and play while wearing pretty clothes. And it is neverending here. Planning to have more kids? Watch out! There is no such thing as Laundry Day.

If my hampers are ever empty we declare it a family holiday and all take off.

If all the clothes are actually washed, dried and put away? When that time arrives I'll let you know what we do.

Rich is the designated laundry person because we are in an apartment (2nd floor) and the laundry room is in the basement. My back wouldn't be able to take the strain of a heavy laundry basket. It seems like no matter how much laundry is washed, there are another 642 loads waiting to get done. Who is wearing our clothes and dumping them in the hamper when we aren't home? Are we this messy?
I think the laundry is reproducing when we aren't looking!
