Fun Photos Friday – # 18 – ‘Mom vs. Laundry’


I am the first to admit, I am not to good with math but I can’t figure out how 4 people can make this much laundry in what feels like a very short period of time.  Look how it’s exploding out of the baskets.

I usually wash a couple loads a day but sometimes, life and work get in the way and this is the result – a back load of madness. My husband and I sometimes watch this show called Man vs. Nature and there is another one called Man vs Food. Well I decided this is my show – ‘Mom vs. Laundry’!  The chronicle of my daily battle with mountains of laundry! I am still on the fence as to whether this photo should be included in “Fun Photo Friday” since there is absolutely nothing fun about laundry. But I thought it might make us laugh nonetheless.

I hope you all have a blessed weekend!



  1. I hate to tell you this but it only gets worse as they get older and the clothes get larger!

    Good luck!

    • Oh Joan, must you be the voice of reason? 🙂 I hope they will help me when they get older but that probably won’t happen very of often.

  2. I have always been behind on laundry. I don’t know what it is about laundry. I think it multiplies in the basket just like the dryer eats socks. 🙂

    the flylady says do one load a day everyday. It’s a good idea, but I’ve had trouble putting it into action.

    Have a great weekend.


    • April I too believe in the sock monster in the dryer!! 🙂 Lately, I have been washing and then taking forever to fold and put away. Pushing the button is easy but the rest pure yuck!

  3. I love your idea of a TV show. I bet it would be a hit being so many people can relate. My boys are out of the nest now. I miss them but not the laundry! I can remember folded clothes in the dirty clothes pile as they got older, yuck! Have a great weekend and you made me laugh. Perfect post!

    • The tricky part is not to be fooled by the sudden euphoria you feel when you have washed the clothes and see an empty hamper. For it is a short-lived victory indeed!!
