I would say when they go to college, but then I remembered that I would bring my laundry home. I'm not sure it does...I think it's a battle in every home.

In our house, in only goes away when company comes over :)

File that under "Never".
My kids are 17 and 12, and it hasn't slowed down one bit!

I'm not sure but I'm going to guess it will be there until thought sweet kiddos move out. So it's going to be there a long time. :)

I am thinking never.
I just got all of ours put away and I am considering making everyone wear the same clothes the rest of the week to avoid anymore!ha.

I wish!!!!!! For me I hate when it's Mr. Man asking for clothes. Oh motherhood :)

I thought I was a super laundry girl when I had 2 kids, and could always stay on top of it. With 3 it now seems to have DOUBLED! I can't even imagine how behind I would feel with 4!

Dawn said...

it seems like ALL i ever do is laundry.. and the dishes. Our bedroom is full of clean laundry, kids laundry, mismatching laundry.. ugh. i can't take it.

Kristin said...

No, but you just made my day because my laundry looks just like yours (the before and after!)! :)

When we win the lotto and hire someone else to do it for us!

It goes away when your kids grow up and move out-
be careful what you wish for- kid laundry is cuter than husband laundry!

Does this happen to people once they have more than one kid? Because so far I don't get the whole laundry thing. You and Julie are scaring me with your "mountains of never ending laundry" posts.

1) Hey, I can see the geometric pattern on your laundryroom floor. That's phenomenal.

2) Decades ago I had a 2nd grader named Justin, then another year his sister Jodi. Their (single) mom successfully had them doing their own laundry by 8. Justin gave a speech about it in class, and brought in his most recent load of towels, shirts, and jeans.

3) Remember, you're never behind on your folding . . . just sometimes ahead on your drying.

It goes away when you see Jesus face to face or when you move to a nudist colony. Those are your only 2 options.

Our house is also a laundry-centric abyss at times, but somehow I have come to a zen-point with it. I stay in the now with each round of clothes and create a game out of it with my family (who can put it away the fastest sort of stuff). Makes the time pass much more quickly and not seem so daunting a task. Anyone else?

Tanya said...

never ever ever...waaahhhhh :(

Laura said...

NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anabel Fournier said...

Oh God, I know! Laundry, laundry. As much as we try to do it only twice a week, it seems that it never stops piling up.

It goes away when they leave home and the house is quiet...too quiet and you long for the hectic noise and mess of little ones running under, over and on your feet. I miss my babies. :)
