I have the kids wear their jammies two times, to save on wear and tear, laundry (take that, Tide!), and so they have to practice folding every other morning (and because they aren't dirty after one night of a clean body in them!). Totally personal choice, but anyway. We are just phasing Ethan into twice-jammies (he's four and finally takes them off before breakfast!). (since I crave the way the tight jammies make him look like the baby I remember, plus he smells all sweet and clean laundry-ish) Last night we were too lazy to go upstairs to get him clean jammies, so we pulled on Saturday night's jammies (still on the loveseat after getting him dressed for church downstairs!) since they aren't the tight ones and still looked great, and he put them on reluctantly, then told us, "they don't smell clean" (sadface). (Umm..have I messed up somewhere? Now he thinks clean smells like Tide/Downy) Maybe that's why the kids push their jammies into the dirty clothes instead of folding them...
There was a funky-feet or rubbery smell in our coat closet last week (stale coats?), so I washed all the jackets/coats, and I'm just finishing up! But the closet still doesn't smell amazing..and then I saw them-the snow boots. I think I found the skeleton in the closet-eww! But where do you keep them if not in the bottom of the coat closet? (and I have no mud room!) Seriously?
-------------We have to commercial break between Downy commercials here. heehee : ) Yesterday was Mary Claire's bridging ceremony from Girl Scout Brownies to Juniors! She was so excited. We took Clay to baseball practice, and drove to Wilson Park. I was so thankful so many people came-it was awesome! : ) The girls were all excited. They should be-they are growing up!
|Ethan chose to |
|And look what this can do! It can shoot red sucker arrows!|
|Now..let's go save the galaxy!|
|Mary Claire's troop ready to bridge! : )|
|with her certificate and yummy cookie!|
|Check that thing out! Beautiful! (recognize that sweet writing??)|
|On the bridge (obviously staged on the way back across!)|
|and then ice cream to celebrate-with chocolate syrup, whipped cream, and sprinkles||!|
----You are hereby notified that commercial is over.----- You're welcome! (and you didn't get to skip with a DVR!) hahaha! : )
I've been doing load after load of laundry since yesterday since we moved Clay's room around, and bunked his beds again! I washed all the bedding, including blankets and quilts, and those all have to be washed separately-so our house smelled good all day (excepting the coat closet). And my son? Thrilled to have a clean room and room for his O-gauge train set!! He was up before seven this morning, and when I went up to tell him it was time to shower-he was running his train (little bro watching), with shower-wet hair, his clothes on, and his towel hung up. Awesome kid! : ) I was so proud of him. I think we do the same thing-don't you perform better in a clean, happy environment? (Or was it the overabundance of detergenty smell going to his head?) (I love it either way!)
Love these kids-all Buzz'd, jammied, sugared, and clean-they are a blessing! : )
