Laundry is essential to everyday living, I don't think anyone would debate about that. However, the manner in which people do laundry can vary greatly.

Okay, not so bad, right? Well, she got more than she bargained for and came running inside to tell me that she had, in fact, pooped in our yard. So I calmly told her that was gross and proceeded to help clean it up. By the time we had that under control my middle child, Beau who is wild and loves fiercely, dec
