Who Are These People and Why Do They Expect Me to Wash for Them?

Haiku Friday
Yesterday's post was lengthy, which means I didn't make much headway in clearing the piles of Hamper Overflow (this substance is a lot like lava, only it's room temperature and smells bad).

As faithful readers know, I have a bit of a problem with laundry. As in some of those piles have been there like, well, maybe ... a week? Thus, I participate in Haiku Friday with laundry on my mind.

Sorting boys' laundry,
I find clothes that are still clean.
They should do their own.

Oh, no! Don't let them do their own. I tried that, and honestly, it rocked. And then, a few weeks later, I actually stopped to look at my children.

Children cannot do laundry. Period.

I found clean clothes in my kids dirty laundry ONCE. After that I informed them that clean clothes would cost them 25 cents per item - yes, each sock would be a quarter. At the time they were 6 and 9 - those quarters would have eaten into allowance quickly. No problems since.
