I think I have mentioned the current love Garrett has for putting things inside of other things, such as putting blocks in a box, etc. Lately, I have been discovering toys inside of his clothes hamper. It's a constant battle - I pull toys out, he puts more in, therefore I have to be very careful when putting their clothes in the washing machine since I have accidentally washed several toys.

Tonight I threw in a load of their laundry as I was cooking dinner. (No, I don't separate colors, whites, and darks....who still does that?....okay, get those bad thoughts of me out of your head!) Well, apparently I should have paid closer attention to what I dumped out of the hamper tonight. This is what I discovered when the cycle was FINISHED -

How did I miss that!? That is a whole football! Not a baby size football, a whole darn football.

I laughed....showed Aaron....we laughed.....Garrett thought it was funny and tried to put the football into the dryer.

I start the dryer, without the football, and as I'm about to shut the door to the laundry room, I hear "thump, thump, thump." I think to myself "You've got to be kidding me!" I open the dryer and find this -
As if I don't have to deal with enough balls in our house (ha ha, get your mind out of the gutter!!) I now have to deal with them in the laundry room. Uggghh....boys and their balls....I mean, boys and their toys....
