My children do not like to get dressed.
This goes against the grain. (My grain that is, not theirs.)
I like things done in a certain well ordered manner.
They often disagree.
I win. Because, I’m the Mom. ‘Nuff said.
Today, I re-evaluate.
I realized that this week I haven’t washed nearly as much laundry as usual. Today I actually washed NO laundry.
Let’s back track for a moment, on any given (normal) day I will wash at least three loads of laundry.
Today I simply removed one load from the dryer.
There is the start of a load waiting in the laundry room. I do not wash loads unless they are FULL (often over-full) because it saves water and energy that way. I can actually see my laundry room floor.
I did a little Happy-Dance.
Then I realized, this is because my children have been staying in their pajamas all week. When they do put something on other than their PJ’s, it’s swimsuits to play in the pool. Those swimsuits (and the towels) then get hung up to dry and re-used the following day.
Mommy was wrong. You may stay in your pajamas all day long. I don’t care if you wear the same ones for a week straight. Just please, put clean undies on every now and then. 🙂
Green Tip???? Don’t you get it? Just stay in your jams. That’s it. Save the world by washing less laundry. (Ok, maybe not the world. You will save a little water, some soap, energy and Mum’s sanity.)
