MOTHER: Hey! Check It Out!


MOTHER: This! What is it?

CHILDREN: A basket.

MOTHER: Yeah! But what IS it?

CHILDREN: Uh... an empty basket. So?

MOTHER: An empty IRONING basket!

CHILDREN: There was a basket under that? ... I didn't know we had a blue laundry basket! 


Final Tally: 1 jacket, 21 shirts, 3 dresses, 18 pillow cases, 26 cloth/ linen napkins, 1 summer coat, 12 tablecloths, 1 pair of trousers, 1 living room window valance, 2.5 sq. ft. additional floor space.


  1. I don't even OWN 18 pillowcases. And it's never occurred to me to iron the ones we do own. You need to come over for some Slacker Mom lessons, kiddo.

  2. Who needs lessons?! Why do you think there's been a three foot pile of ironing in the basket since 1995!

    : )

  3. I just moved and accidentally dumped my ironing basket.... My boy is sixteen and I found his white dress shirt from his first band concert from grade four! So cute, but, where did I put that basket in the new house????
