the amount of laundry going through this place...

is anything but eco-friendly.

what can i say? these little newborns make some big messes, and toddlers don't win any awards for cleanliness either. thankfully these kids have cuteness on their side--otherwise i might be inclined to charge them for all the extra resources they're using.

we're back to doing diaper laundry every other day now, and i'm washing a load of clothes daily to help keep on top of everything--any longer and i feel like i don't stand a chance. we seem to be going though blankets, towels and sheets at an alarming pace. i recall this from lucy's beginning as well--it seems that both nursing and diaper changes are on a messy learning curve that lasts a couple of weeks. then we've got a load of cleaning rags and dishtowels every 3 days or so. that's 12 loads of laundry a week if you're counting--and 13 if you add in an extra load of all whites which i try to do when i'm feeling super domestic.

i've been lucky to have nice visitors who aren't opposed to folding while they chat! i think of it kind of as charging admission to see the cute baby...

Our Bradley coach said, "when people are coming to see the baby and ask 'can I pick you up anything?' HAVE THEM PICK SOMETHING UP. You know you need something...anything....milk? There is a price to touch your baby." It was funny, but it's true! And I'll never forget it.
