Happy Times on Christmas Eve…not

Would you like to guess what I'll be doing tonight…on Christmas Eve?

It has something to do with this.

It may look like a small innocent crayon, but it is evil. EVIL I tell you.

I'll give you a hint. This morning, I decided to do some laundry, so that I won't have as much to do this weekend.

Did you guess?

Yep, I will be spending the rest of the day trying to get purple color crayon out of my whites. Oh, don't worry, I have googled how to remove crayon stains from laundry, and there appear to be several different ways. However, each of the ideas has to do with applying removers and such from each piece of laundry, individually. Obviously, whoever came up with these ideas does not realize how many articles of clothing can be in a load of laundry, when you have 5 children and an extra large capacity front load washing machine!! Oh, and they also warn that it may take several washes before it comes completely out...because I just don't have enough loads of laundry to do!

Right now I am re-washing the entire load in hot water, hoping that might lighten the stain enough in most of the clothes to not be as noticeable. (Did I mention a pair of Chris' new Schwan's pants were in there, too?)

But one thing is for sure…Daycare or no daycare, all crayons are currently banned from my house!!
