Sometimes I want to tell the boys that they can run naked for awhile- just so I can actually have ALL the laundry done at once. I am pretty sure they would take me up on it.
Which is why I haven't offered.
My oldest son likes to wear "sport guy" shorts and a variety of Tee shirts. He prefers Tees with dangerous animals or sports themes.
Roman will only wear pajamas or longsleeved shirts and longsleeved pants.
Lincoln freaks out if he has a drop of water on him and well, he is 2 and he goes through a lot of outfits- even with my greater than average tolerance for my children wearing stained/dirty clothes.
Why did I tell you all that?
I just basically want to make it clear that what we wear around here is decidedly in the "play clothes" category. Decidedly. Also, 95% of the boys clothes have been given to me and passed down through my troops as well.
So here is my secret: I am not a thorough laundry sorter.
I just don't care.
I MOSTLY try to get all the darks generally together.
But if a pair of socks sneak in, oh well.
And I mostly keep the whites together.
But sometimes a red tee ball shirt gets tossed in.
And sometimes I will just do a combination load of lights, darks and bath towels.
Just because I am the mom.
And I am in charge.
And I have bigger and better things to do than freak out about my laundry.
I am sure some of you are wincing right now (just so you know, I have only turned something white pink 1 time and that was years ago).
How do you do your laundry? Do you tolerate combo loads, or is everything separated down to the littlest baby sock?
