I have what is probably the worst OCD ever if you are a swim mom. I hate dirty laundry and I freak out if I am more than half a load behind. Which sucks because my kids use 3 towels a day for swimming. Grace showers at least twice a day. Sophie and Sarah when I insist (but mom we swam yesterday). They also change clothes before practice, for some reason they can’t wear their school clothes to the pool. I encourage them to hang their towels and use them again but it often falls on deaf ears. I also think anything that has been inside their swim bags for more than three minutes is contaminated. We found ants in Grace’s last week. Sarah’s bag weighs 50 lbs from 3/4 full drink bottles.
My kids also have a hard time deciding what to wear to school. If Grace doesn’t like what she has chosen she throws it on the floor. Often with a wet towel on top. Sarah, she just shoves it in her laundry basket.
Thank goodness for Sophie. She never second guesses her clothing choices. I have often have to point out when people look at her outfits funny that she is a third child. Gotta love a kid who doesn’t bathe and doesn’t create excess laundry for me. Uggs, gym shorts and a pool cover up? Stylin.
(Yes, I know they should do their own laundry but then what would I bitch about?)
