There's nothing quite like dirty Laundry!

Bart got home from Las Vegas last night and so this morning he had dumped all of his dirty clothes out of his suitcase and had it sitting on top of our bed. Meanwhile, I had told Caitlin that she needed to go get the laundry from the dryer {which she obviously didn't hear - read on you'll see why} and fold it. So, she goes bounding up the stairs and is gone for quite a while. About a half hour passes and she comes downstairs and looks as if she is close to crying. I asked her what was wrong and she proceeded to tell me that she folded all of the clothes on my bed and after she had done so, dad thanked her for folding his dirty laundry. She was so mad and I could not stifle the laughter {which always makes it worse}
I don't know what was funnier - the fact that she folded smelly dirty clothes or that she still had an entire load waiting for her in the dryer! Poor girl! But, it really was a funny sight!

That's gotta be frustrating. :) Funny as heck though. I had a ton of laundry yesterday...10 loads. I was busy the entire day with it. On the last load, the washer gave out. I'm crossing my fingers we can fix it.

I think I would've wanted to cry too. How funny. She'll probably start listening better form now on.
