When I gathered all of DB’s clothes and tossed them in the hamper, I prided myself on getting chores done so early in the morning. When I added her sopping wet overnight diaper to the hamper to make carrying everything downstairs easier, I thought to myself, “Way to multitask! Better remember to take this out and throw it in the trash.” As I loaded the toddler clothes and the kitchen laundry into the washer, I felt oh-so-productive.
And now? Now that the washer AND dryer AND all her clothes are covered in that super-absorbent gel from the inside of the diaper that never went into the trash? Now I feel like an idiot.
And as all that laundry goes back into the washer for a second time, I’m wondering if I’ll have to rinse every single piece of it by hand. That shit sticks to everything.
p.s. Does this count as my HAWMC free write? =)
