It's a miracle. (this is for you, kari ann)
As any mom of young children knows, laundry is a BIG deal.

A really big deal.

I typically do 1-2 loads of laundry a day (or rather, I typically should do 1-2 loads of laundry a day). Clothes & bedding get all manners of goop on them.

Usually, after dinner time, I strip the kids down at the table, along with the loudly worded caution of "Don't touch me don't touch me! UGH!" (due to cheetos/yogurt/pudding/applesauce or whatever else is spread all over their face & hands). Then the clothes get flung into the washer, from my fingers pinching whatever dry corner I can grasp. The children are promptly scoured in the tub.

Today, there was a miracle in Leeds.

Emerson's clothes can be worn for another day. They are spotless. Not a crumb, spot, smudge, or glop on them.

And to top matters off,

That is a miracle. Its never occurred here in the Burnett household. Laundry increases exponentially with the second child, I have decided.

TEE HEE, that WAS a miracle. I don't even buy my kids white, and you would faint if you saw all the laundry in my house lol
