Reason #46 We Do A Lot of Laundry…

…because Clara’s new favorite trick is to climb on the table – and sometimes she finds things there.

I’m hoping that most of the soda went on the clothes instead of in her belly, but I’m afraid nap time is going to be tough today!

*I’d also like you to know that by the time I got there the soda was already down her front, in her belly and gone. As much as I like posting photos on my blog I’m not about to let my child caffeinate herself just before nap for a photo op!

Reason #8 We Do A Lot Of Laundry…

…because yesterday was like this:

“Where are your pants?”

“Oh, they are just full of chicken poop.”
Later after new pants it was:

“I think a duck pooped on me.”

“No, I think you rolled in duck poop.”

Shortly after with a naked girl it was:
“Can you turn on the bathtub for me I have poop on my foot.”

How can someone who looks so sweet be so full of…

… it?

Reason #9 We Do A Lot of Laundry

This is what comes off my kitchen floor in 48 hours. This does  not include the small sweepings around the highchair that happen after every meal. (Sorry if you were eating or anything, but I thought a visual was in order.)

Add to this dirt one crawling kid.

Then add one large dog water bowl.

Imagine the dog bowl is on the floor, you know, so the dogs can drink out of it and stuff.

Now imagine what happens when you add to the large pile of dirt a large pile of water, because nothing gets Clara moving faster than a good dish of water to dump.  Now I hear you saying, “Water doesn’t pile Jessie.” And you are absolutely right, it runs, all the way across the floor of my crooked, crooked house.

Now imagine what happens when a small girl crawls through the resulting quagmire, which is of course unavoidable because of the aforementioned crookedness and waters lack of pile-ing ability.

Yup, you guessed it, laundry…
