diapers in my washing machine, wet socks, and madness

In case you ever happen to accidently run a disposable diaper through the washing machine... the trick is to add a cup of salt to the load and wash it again.

Then, spend the whole day in your yoga pants and a random t-shirt that hasn't seen the light of day for half a year because it takes three rounds through the washing machine to finally get the clothes to the drier.


Don't you hate it when you step in a puddle of something wet when you're in your socks? I know it would seem like stepping in it with your barefoot would be worse, but it's not. The wet sock is worse.

Today I feel like the wet sock.

L. Pirate is to blame. L. Pirate and his vendetta against sleeping! Last night was another one of those nights he wakes up around 2 - 2:30 thinking the whole world should be up and playing with him. He's also decided to occasionally refuse daytime naps -I still stick him in his crib, for at least an hour- but I hear him in there talking to himself and playing with Scout and not sleeping.

His not sleeping = my not sleeping and somehow he does a whole lot better with the missed ZzzZs than I do. He's still smiling and laughing and running around. While I look (& feel) like a half-zombie toad on a log.

And I feel like I'm ready for another one!?

I think I've lost. my. mind.

I don't think you are crazy :) Though I do believe that I am...I have a 5 year old, a 3 year old, and a 1 year old (all boys)...and baby #4 (a girl) is due in May - but then again my sanity has been in question for years, so I am probably not the best judge for this question.

Sorry about the diaper in the washer, and the no sleep. I hope you get some rest soon.

My sister's boy is the same. Where the heck to they get all that energy?

I agree on the wet sock thing. YUCK!

why hasn't anyone ever told me about the salt trick before??!?!?! I could have used that one SOOOO many times.

And I totally empathize. Eric refuses to sleep through the night any more. Yes, my 3 year old gets up at and wants to sleep in my bed. So, I was a zombie today as well. I'm feeling ya.

We went through the same thing. Turned out to be ear infections! Good luck!
