The Joys of Boys

So maybe I've been bragging a little about how my kids do their own laundry. And maybe I've begun to notice that some of them don't seem to have much laundry to do. Then maybe I came home from driving some sons to school and found:




Family room evidence


Hallway evidence



Kitchen evidence



Okay, if it's not worn, it doesn't have to washed.
Maybe it's their logic which has me the most proud.

Going commando is always the best bet.

I was with you for a bit on this one...

I do the laundry and wonder where the heck my son's underwear is!

Then I pay closer attention and notice he either has worn it more than one day in a row or when he took it off, wherever it lands is where it stays.

Pretty pathetic that laundry day has me counting and calculating the proper number of unders and socks.

Glad to know I'm not alone. And thanks so much for the email yesterday. Glad that day is behind us.

Thanks for keeping mine out of sight. Son number 3 wore his last pair for 3 days. You'll know the ones when you see them.

Too funny, but mostly a relief because I'm not the only one with a son who can be laundry-challenged at times. Our son just graduated from college, impressive academically and athletically, but not so much laundryally.

He's now in an apartment with another young coach.

Yikes.

Speedy arrived home last night with a week's worth, dumped it in the living room and left it there until another MAN complained.

Happy Belated Mother's Day! You don't need any tips. Yours are trained right. Mine still thinks if it's been thought of being worn it needs to be washed. My only complaint now is that he should buy laundry detergent. He uses way more than I do!

Reminded me of my brother when little. He had tracks on his underwear and Mom would find them thrown in the upper back part of the closet!
