purple laundry baskets are the stuff that dreams are made of

Tuesday, July 10

The other day when my room was nothing but a big pile of laundry that needed folding, and the magic of the all-powerful crunchy book was starting to fade, I popped Everett into the laundry basket to keep him contained and safe for a few minutes. It ended up being totally pointless though. I mean, just look at him. That's a face that says, "laundry baskets forever!" First of all, there's nothing else in the world that actually says that so it can't be taken lightly. And second of all, how are you supposed to fold clothes when there's a baby in the room pleading with you to make the laundry basket his purple chariot of greatness, specifically designed for victory laps around the bedroom and giving him the time of his life?

I'll tell ya, you don't.

Thanks for sharing these! Our little man had a serious laundry basket phase - wanted all his toys in with him and then dropped them all over the side for hours. I had almost forgotten :)

The laundry is my youngest's favourite thing. If he's hurt himself or is fed up, I tell him we can go and do the laundry and he's in heaven! You should see him rolling around in it, taking clothes for a trip around the room, putting clothes in & out of the basket, wearing them (sort of, if a hosiery scarf counts!), and having a giant cuddle with a big armful. It's a great diversion, I hope it lasts for Everett.

Who on this earth would fold laundry when you could give that baby a ride in a laundry basket? Not I, nor you, clearly.
Your priorities rock.

I'm impressed that your laundry made it to the bedroom with a face like that to contend with.
Who needs toys when there's so much Mama distracting to be done.
Love your blog!
