Abs is 14 and I'm loving all of it even the teenager eye roll🙄 and the constant argument over "LAUNDRY". Laundry everywhere - on the floor in her room, the bathroom floor, the living room, and even the kitchen sometimes.

It's a constant "laundry war". Abigail Jane, "Pick your clothing up from the floor in the bathroom and put them in the laundry basket right outside the door," not one, not two, not three, maybe by the fourth time she'll pick them up. Does she not hear me, is she ignoring me, or did she forget her name?  And walk into her bedroom, I can't even see the floor. This is just after all the clothing has been picked up, with in 2 hours her floor is covered again. Clean and dirty clothing all mixed together. The "laundry war" never ends. I'll hear her friends walk in and say, "Abby, where's your floor". Where have I failed? She's been picking up her clothing for years and now all of a sudden, it takes her a week to clean her room.

I don't look at cleaning her room as a chore, maybe I should? Shouldn't she just want to keep it cleaned? There are other chores she does....BUT I feel cleaning your room is not a chore, just do it. This is possibly the reason she can't find her underwear, socks, or bra in the morning. Remember this text:

I've heard from other Mom's battling their own "laundry war" (Thank you, love these)

-If your earbuds wind up in your pickets they're getting washed. 

-Your license will get washed and dried if you leave your wallet in your pants.

-Empty your pockets or the money is mine. 😂😂

Are you in a constant "laundry war"?

Do your kids pick up their clothing CLEAN OR DIRTY?

Do your kids do their own laundry?

Do they fold it? Do they put it away?




My daughter is the love of my life - fresh, funny, truly a wonderful little soul that brings me sunshine every day. She's now 14 and her life and what she does is just so funny, it’s too funny not to talk about or write about. It’s all about sharing our adventures with you. Time flies. Thanks for all of your advice through the years, mom's we are never alone! I guess it should be "Sue's Mom Blog" since she's so grown up now, I'm totally laughing out loud at that!
