When Laundry Becomes a Turn On

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and I'll admit, lately I've been in a bit of a funk.

I've come to the realization I am not going to be happy staying at home doing household chores. This job is simply not a good fit for me. Bravo to all those mamas out there who do it, do it well, love and thrive doing it! However, as soon as our youngest daughter gets her driver's license, I am sprinting back into the work force!

Perhaps I would feel differently if the kids were still young. Young kids are demonstrative with their love. I've come to understand teens have two ways of expressing themselves-- one syllable grunts, such as huh, ma, why, wha, ish, na, ya, meh, bleh, or overly-dramatic monologues which are usually worthy of a daytime Emmy award.

So pardon me if I don't feel the urge to spend my days laundering their knickers, or worse, feeling like their unappreciated, unpaid maid.

I've whined all this to Doc H. And, apparently, he's been listening.

This morning, on my return home from school drop-off, I came home to this...


... matched socks and folded whites!

That man really knows how to light my fire... and just in time for Mother's Day!

I wish all you hard working Mama's out there...
... a Happy Mother's Day!

  1. Lol! Love the part about the two ways to communicate - I've still got two teen siblings and they are definitely just like that! :D How sweet of your husband to do that for you, my son is just now "getting" how to clean up after himself, it makes things so much easier!

    Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day! :)

  3. I feel like a terrible Mom, as soon as my kids were tall enough to reach the controls on the washer I made them do their own laundry. I was tired of crawling under beds and searching behind dressers for their dirty laundry. Or getting complaints I hadn't washed something they wanted to wear that day, because I didn't find it to wash.


    I'm leaving this anonymous so nobody calls child welfare on me :)
