So as the loving, caring, devoted husband that I am I decided that with the kids going back to school I would get more involved around the house when I am in town. Now I haven't verbalized this to my wife I just started doing more stuff, this way if I slack off I won't get called on the carpet for it.
I picked the laundry as something that I am good at and can do fairly quickly. A couple of observations.
1) Having children who wear school uniforms isn't a bad thing. It does double the amount of clothes they go through in a week as they always change as soon as they get home.
2) Having to iron said uniforms is tough, those little buggars are difficult to get the creases out of.
3) Having two children who are in gymnastics 2 and 3 times a week, cheerleading and flag football adds dramatically to the amount of clothes washed.
4) Having an adult that lifts 4 days a week, practices MMA, NO-Gi and BJJ 3 days a week and wears suits to work adds even more to the total laundry.
5) Under no circumstances can you leave MMA / No-Gi clothes rolled up in a towel for 3 days in a row it will spontaneously evolve life that is very difficult to kill.
6) Let's not forget that we probably go swimming at least 2 times a week and all the towels and bathing suits that go along with that have to get washed.
7) Washing and drying apparently is not the end of the laundry duties. Once its clean apparently you are supposed to fold it and put it away properly in a specific location. Who Knew! Who Knew...
Just wondered if anyone else out there with an active lifestyle ever looked at how much laundry they were creating.
