Ummm...

I know I talk about laundry.
Alot.
But, we're a family of six.
Laundry happens around here.
Alot.

Yesterday.
Folding socks.
La, la. La, la. La.
Hmmm.
That's odd.

Brookelynn.
32 socks.
Yes, I counted.

Jake.
6 socks.
Brookelynn.
16 perfectly matched pairs.

Jake.
1 matched pair.
4 singles.

Questions.
1. How can my daughter go through 16 pairs of socks?
(in about a week)
2. How can my son go through 1 pair and 4 singles?
(in the same amount of time)

Me: Brookelynn, how is this possible?
B: I don't know; I like clean socks.

Yes you do.
And apparently, Jake doesn't.

Can we find a balance, please?

That is so funny! I have things like that happen too... What is scarier for me is when I only have two pair of underwear from one of the girls some weeks, despite our many conversations about the need for change & proper hygiene (please tell me she'll grow up to care!)

I'm pretty sure the rest of Jake's are in my basement.

And L&B told me all about B's sock obssession just a couple days ago...
