I'll Get Right On That

The laundry machine and drier are literally across the hall from where we are. You would think this would make doing laundry easier.

Strangely, having a toddler who can't be left in the apartment  by herself when awake, doesn't nap long enough to do even one full load of laundry, and can't be trusted in the hallway (with TWO big staircases that she LOVES to climb up and down even though she has fallen at least once now), makes it almost impossible to do laundry during the day when I'm here with her alone.

Why didn't anybody ever tell me that having a toddler would make everyday excursions and to-dos into adventures and impossibilities?!

You'd think that somebody, somewhere would have pointed that out. Maybe.

      No, of course not. Becoming a parent means that life gets harder, especially in the baby and toddler years. I know that, you know that, everyone knows that.

      But it IS rather surprising to find out exactly what becomes difficult and why.

      For example, if this laundry room (which barely fits the laundry machine and drier) were on the first floor, that would be fine and we could work with it but because of the stairs it's suddenly (almost) impossible to actually do laundry during the day.
