Imagine having 6 people in your family.
Imagine the laundry that 6 people (the tween in particular) can create.
Now imagine folks that the opportunity arose where that laundry would be within steps, (or throwing distance really) to everyone’s beds. That would be totally freakin awesome right?
People, unless your bedrooms are all in the basement or you live in a 1 floor bungalow, DO NOT GET EXCITED WHEN THE BUILDER SHOWS YOU THE PLANS FOR THE LAUNDRY ROOM BY THE BEDROOMS!
Play it cool. Don’t think about all the trips up and down the god forsaken stairs that you won’t have to make carrying the oldest child’s damn laundry. Don’t think about how everyone will be within spitting distance of the laundry hamper so maybe…maaaaaaybe, their laundry will ACTUALLY make it in there! Even… *gasp* BOTH SOCKS IN THE PAIR!
Those things might happen…
but you know what else might happen?
Your washing machine might flood and you might find yourself running around losing your mind trying to stop the ebb and flow of water that is POURING down 3 levels of your house, destroying everything in its path.
This sucks major a$$ people.
Suddenly the hike to the basement to wash everyone’s smelly socks and grubby sheets doesn’t seem so bad.
