Laundry with an 11-month-old

Laundry with my daughter Josephine next to me goes something like this…

I put 3 items in (we have a front loader since we live in Europe).

She takes 3 items out.

I put 1 item in when she is not looking.

She still manages to magically take 3 items out.

I distract her again and throw handfuls in.

More piles on the floor before I blink my eyes.

And, before I know it, there is more laundry on the floor now than there was to start. Mom is tired. And it’s time for Josephine’s nap. But where is she?

Oh no! She’s heading for the bedroom next!

Quick. Slam door. Scoop up baby. Nurse her to sleep.

And, since baby sleeps in your room where you do laundry, laundry is officially over for the day.

So, the age-old question is: If there is laundry in a house with a baby, does the laundry ever get done?

When I am not too tired to figure out that equation, I’ll get back to you.

Probably while holding a baby in one hand and dirty socks in the other. Which should, then, technically answer your question 😉
