The Never Ending Laundry Pile

January 20, 2009

Today as I put the fourth pair of pants on the Little One, I finally figured out why I can never ever get all the laundry done. No matter how many loads I do, there is somehow still a pile in the hamper.

It’s because my lovely children and Husband all seem to pick a different day to be messy or have leaky diapers {the leaky diapers of course only refer to the Little One!}

I cannot believe that it’s only 12:30 p.m. and she is wearing her fourth pair of pants.

The first change was the result of a pee explosion. My girls have recently discovered that they like “red juice.” That refers to the V8 V-Fusion Acai Mixed Berry Juice. It seems to be the only way to get vegetables in them, so I go with it. But it seems to make the volume of pee multiply. She really isn’t drinking any more amounts that usual so I don’t really get it, but I do know the diaper can only hold so much before it leaks out. In this case, it leaked out on the little pink upholstered rocking chair that we have.

The second pair of pants came as the result of the Little One’s “helpfulness.” The Big One peed in her little potty and the Little One decided that she was going to be the one to dump the pee into the toilet. Let’s just say the only thing that landed in the toilet was the little potty itself. Again the volume of pee produced, this time by the Big One, was phenomenal.

So apparently when I went upstairs to retrieve yet another pair of pants, the Little One unfastened her diaper and didn’t quite get it back together correctly. It’s my fault for not completing a thorough check when I put the third pair of pants on. About 4 minutes after the third pair of pants went on, the pee started flowing. This time it flowed all over the Pooh Bear couch.

So now in addition the three pairs of pee-soaked pants to wash, I also have to bust out the upholstery cleaner to clean the pink chair and I have to do another load of laundry to clean the cover for the Pooh Bear couch. So much for “FixItMommy-time” during naps. UGH!
