No more laundry :o(


Yesterday hubby and I made a trip to our real home to mow grass and run a few errands. My son rode along with me while running errands and I enjoyed his company so much. The next time I see my son we'll be helping him move his things into his new home. As I walked out the door to leave, I grabbed his laundry and brought it home with me since we'll be seeing him again in a few days. Believe it or not, on my way home, I got a little emotional thinking that this will be the last time I "get" to do my son's laundry. How many times I have cursed having to do laundry??? And now, my baby is getting married and his new wife will have the pleasure of keeping up with his laundry. Really, it's okay, as I LOVE his wife to be... it's just an emotional thing about mama's little boy being all grown up now. So, I'm heading off to the laundry room now.... to lovingly do my son's laundry.... one last time.

I so totally understand the laundry thing and the emotion it brings.

PEN PEN,
Yes, I can understand getting upset over laundry. I would do the same thing. I still have one of the kids diapers, lets see that would be about 35 years old.
How is the job hunting going? And what a cute idea and pretty table you friend set for a tea party.

Awww...tht's sooo sweet! When my sone FINALLY moved out - he wasn't to the corner before I was painting his room for my art room! But, he was #3 out of 4 and 27 to boot - He's married now and happy, happy, happy. And I am too. Glad to hear you are enjoying this last little ritual we do for our children..it is a new chapter in his life - bu have no fear - you will always be his first love!

Awww Mama...I'm sorry you cried when washing Will's cloths. I see you have the stain remover in the basket - see how much work he is? *grin*

Indeed I will take good care of my darling new husband to be. He brought his clothes to my house a couple of weeks ago (said he had nothing left that was clean)... I enjoyed washing his cloths, it was a fun start to what it will be like. I haven't been informed of any unremoved stains, or shrinking (that's what I worried about!!!) so I guess I did an okay job. Hahaha. But momma, if you'd like, I'll be sure and bring you some dirty clothes every now and again to help you remember those days! :)

EXACTLY! I don't mind doing my sons' laundry as long as they are thankful and have a good attitude about it. If I don't get it done, they gladly do it themselves. PS, I don't really like them taking over my washer and dryer. Rather do it myself! :o)

Hi penny,
I cried for a week when my son got married. It broke my heart that another woman was taking my place. LOL
Thanks for all your visits.
Hugs,
Elizabeth
