When you left, all your old favorite duds would be ready to wear!

Now, I warn you that the moment you wash all the dirty clothes and linens in your home, your little angel of a baby will have a poo-splosion, a massive spit-up, or both. So, the tip today is to hang back and leave some laundry ready and waiting. And to feel good about it.
