Lazy Mom Does The Kids' Laundry

If you're a mom you know that you are drowning in laundry, right?  You may have a little girl who loves to change her clothes once or 100 times a day.

You may have a little boy who loves to wear capes and costumes and roll around in the mud.

You may have a child who attracts dirt and stains wherever they go. Even while standing alone and perfectly still in an immaculate room, with not a speck of dirt nearby.  Yet somehow, a stain will leap out at them and attack them.  Especially if they are wearing white.

Dirt will find a way.  It doesn't like to be alone and it loves to share.  So let's do our child's laundry the lazy mom way.

LAZY MOM TIP: How To Do The Kids' Laundry




Lazy Mom's motto: Make it easy, make it fun and get it done!

("Lazy" and "Mom" are not usually two words you'd put together in a sentence, are they? But sometimes we moms get tired and we DO feel like being lazy.  We've had a long day of doing stuff but there is more to be done!  That's when I suggest we do things the Lazy Mom way!)

  1. This is an excellent post, Nan. I think these tips are very helpful - except for suggesting we reward ourselves with m&ms, naughty naughty!

    1. That's exactly how I was. I just wasn't hungry and anything sweet did NOT sound good. Praying you feel better soon!

  3. Wish I had thought of that! Too late now. Does it work for husbands?

    1. Hahaha! Our bedroom laundry hamper is a tall round wicker basket. Occasionally I find my hubby's laundry on the floor next to it, so I know he missed the toss, lol!

  4. Nan,
    I have missed you! Glad you are continuing to 'mend'!
    I do not enjoy any aspect of laundry, except for those couple of hours when it is all done!

    1. Yes, it is always so awesome just knowing that your laundry is done....until you undress and get in your jammies, lol!

      For me, the hardest thing about laundry is forcing myself to start. If I can just force myself to start the process (and I do that by having scheduled laundry days) then I'm fine once I start, lol!

    2. Carol, I can't read your blog anymore! When I click on your profile the link to your blog isn't there anymore. At least, not that I can see. It used to be there. I hope you see this!

  5. Blogger hates me. This is my third attempt at leaving a comment. Now I feel like pouting and not repeating myself.

    BUT - the laundry baskets for sorting really do work. Ours are on a shelf above the washer and dryer and they actually have to toss things up high to make it.

    You should have blogged when my six kids were little. I could have followed your Lazy Mom tricks and had more time to read and write....

    1. Hahahaha! Well, maybe someone with six kids NOW will discover it and have more time to read and write, lol!

      So sorry about blogger. How frustrating. I get that sometimes with disqus. I usually save my comment ahead of time just in case I lose it. I also have had trouble with blogger before too. So copy your comment.....just in case! That's what I do.

  6. GREAT IDEA! I have a 6 year old who believes a new pair of pj's EVERY NIGHT is nice and who changes a few times a day and who loves to leave them in a pile on the floor. She could use a laundry game!!

    1. So you've got that little girl who loves to change! She'd better brush up on her jump shot, lol!

  7. My 2 year old LOVES to help me do laundry. He helps carry all the dirty clothes to the utility room, he puts them in the washer and I let him pour in the detergent once it's measured, I reach him the wet clothes & he puts them in the dryer & he reaches me everything out of the dryer that needs folded. I'm teaching him early!!!

    My teenager will do laundry if MADE. Boy she doesn't have any problem throwing clean clothes in the dirty bin though when she cleans her room. It's called too lazy to hang them up so let's let mom rewash them instead!!! Drives me crazy

    1. Both my boys have done that one. Once my son put 25 shirts in there. 25!!!!! I really prefer being in charge of the laundry and don't want anyone else doing it (I like to make sure those stains are OUT, lol!).

      But after each one did that, I said "If you ever do this again, you will be doing your own laundry because I will be DONE." Now they are really good about putting their dirty clothes in there every day. They don't want to do their own laundry, lol!

    2. And yes, I did count every one of his shirts, lol! He had just "cleaned" his room by doing exactly what you said.
