- When you become a mother you begin a life on constantly doing laundry. Before I had Luke I would do laundry once a week, at most. I wouldn't let it really pile up or get out of hand, but the hampers were always nice and full before I would start a load. Now, we have this snowball effect.
"Oh, we're running low on diapers. I should wash some."
"Well, if I'm washing whites I should go ahead and do a whole load."
"I might as well wash the colors and darks too."
So this is now my life. I do laundry all the time and I can't stop myself.
