A True Look at Dana's OCD

On my list of things to do all week was to start doing some Sam laundry. While we do have a lot of clothes, they are so tiny, I figured I'd have one load...maybe... Well, after an hour of just cutting off tags, I realized I had two full loads! That doesn't even include all of the blankets! Everything is in either the washer or dryer at the moment. And, yes, I was the anal mom using Dreft to wash these itty bitty clothes :) Another insight into my obsessiveness: After everything is dried, I plan to measure the outfits (neck to crotch) so I can arrange them that way. I look at some of these things and think, "What newborn will be THAT long?" or, "I think he'll be able to wear that way before six months!" A disclaimer: I know that the sizes on the tags don't match the age, but the same principle applies. So, I'll be hanging out on the couch with a ruler surrounded by baby clothes later today and I couldn't be happier :D

(I could probably start a business organizing people before babies come. I am assuming not ALL expectant mothers enjoy this stuff as much as I do!)

Hmmm, not a pink thing in sight -- please be careful & don't wash with anything red because then you WILL have pink things! xo your Dreft-loving mom
