My future daughters-in-law are going to LOVE me for this...

.... future son-in-law, probably not so much.

The Storm and Her Highness had a playdate recently with a dear friend and her kiddos to give me some much needed time off. Turns out, our "crud" was/is actually RSV. And yes, Flash Flood caught it last and is still battling it out. Poor, poor baby. He's doing well with it though, so I can't complain.

Back to the playdate...
While at my friend's house, the kids played with these artsy beads that you can create shapes with then iron them together to make the shapes stick. I have no idea what they are called, but my bigger kids love them. On the way home Thunder's artwork fell apart-- big surprise, I know. Thunder comes home pouting and says, "Look, Momma! Mine broke!" Her Highness interrupts, "It's okay, Momma. It can be fixed if we have one of those dryer things like Emily."
Thunder looks to me and says, "Do we?! Do we have a dryer thing like Emily??"

The "dryer thing" they are referring to would be an IRON.
And I'm not trying to brag, but I did have to dust it off before using it to fix Thunder's masterpiece.

Maybe my future (orphan) daughters-in-law will forgive me for the other areas in which I have failed them. I'm trying girls!

You have your hands full...I think you can have a "pass" on that one! I just tell people that "I don't iron!" They laugh, probably because they think I am joking, but seriously...I don't iron!

Hey Holly in my house we really do iron with a dryer. If wrinkled run for a few minutes and life is good. So her Highness was not that far off

I sure that's what my kids will be saying too, because I never use an iron!!! Love you girl!

I think this is DEFINITELY something to brag about! HA! It would be more of a hazard than help at your house!
Love, L

I'm sure my girls will appreciate that. They aren't learning much about ironing from me. They will be thankful the expectation isn't there! :)

HAHAHA! So true! My kids are terrified of the vaccuum... because they see it about never times a month.
And my wonderful hubs didn't do his own laundry until 23. That's years old. And it should be duly noted that he is currently 34 and STILL somehow doesn't do laundry... :) I will now be calling his mother.
