Rocks in my dryer is nothing.....

Good Morning Sports fans!! I just have a short post today to show you just how much fun it is to have 5, let me restate that 6 boys in the house. Milk Man has officially been dubbed a child..... ya all knew it was coming didnt you? He really is a great husband and works so hard for our family. Then he comes home and tries to help out. He has always been good to try to help with the laundry, the barn cloths to be exact, but I am a bit like Train Wreck - I like things done a certain way. HOWEVER!! I have learned to let him do it, because it makes him feel good... then I just, at times, redo it - dont you dare tell him.... or we're through for good!! LOL

Yesterday morning started out as normal, I made breakfast at 4:30, cleaned up the kitchen and looked at my meal planner for lunch and supper info. I then went down stairs to see what mayhem lay in store as far as the laundry was concerned - and the older boys' bedrooms, can we all say together - "toxic waste dump site" Sheesh...
Anyway, the Milk Man being the great guy he is had thrown a load of barn cloths in the 'old' washer. I have 2 washing machines because one cant keep up with this family AND because the barn cloths have so much crap on them I do smaller loads so that they wash better. Also so I dont have left over manure in the washer when I put in good cloths, its happened trust me. ANYWAY!! The older boys come into the mudroom through the walkout basement door. However, they prefer to take off thier barn cloths by the back door and leave them in a tub outside so they dont stink up the basement... good kids... This is where the trouble came in yesterday... Milk Man had put a load in from the tub that is outside - this is what I found when I went to hang that load out on the line - be prepared...

This is the old washer...


See anything?


How about now?


See the TOAD IN MY WASHER?!?!?!??!?


He must have jumped into the luandry tub outside and Milk Man didnt see him. The poor little bugger LIVED through all of the soap, softner and whirling around!!! He was released back into the wild of our back yard with great fanfare!! LOL I told Milk Man he had been reclassed as a child - he said that he didnt look in the tub before he threw the cloths in. I always do because crickets jump in there and I also find various objects such as cars, chap stick, pocket knives, washers and bolts, screw drivers, wrenchs, and the ocasional tree frog....

SO, starting on a differant subject. Does anyone one to see how I make freezer corn? If so, I will post it here later today....

Last but not least here is a Milk Dud picture taken the other day at my mother in laws while she was making freezer corn... sniffing my ensue!! LOL



See the baby clevage!! He is getting FAT!!!

Oh I send a hug and smooch (for the top of that little head!)From his "SAGAT" (Self Appointed Godmother Auntie Trainwreck) I just want to scoop him up and put him in my pocket! I promise I will take him out before I put them in the washer!!
That is one lucky toad!! You should've given him a little smooch? I know you already are maried to "Prince Milkman" But maybe it would've been a pool boy! LOL!! Lord knows your family could use one! (a Pool!)
Oh Yes! Freezer corn! Yum! We have the best sweet corn here in this little one horse town! Our Sweet Corn Festival is this weekend! So I need a storage plan!
Also Tell Milkman I said he should get extra funds on his "Man Card!" For helping out, as busy as he is! I love that!

He is so adorable ! Healthy and fat, for sure. GOOD MOMMY ! Love the blog - just recently stumbled upon it and enjoy reading about the farm and the family. TAKE CARE !

Carla said...

First, what a sweet Milkdude! Second, as a mom of 4 boys (AND 1 husband), I learned to check before I threw things in the dryer! That toad is probably feeling pretty lucky!

Suzanne said...

Oh yeah toads!!! Those suckers are indestructible. I got toads!!! I did unwitting manage to turn some of them into mummies though. More on that later.

Oh, Milk Dud is so cute, but he looks like he could go to work in the fields any day now. WOW. You sure grow them healthy out on the farm.

Freezer corn. Yes. .... I want to learn how to do freezer corn. I'm gonna have to go out and buy myself a chest freezer pretty soon.

ISn't he just the sweetest little thing. I want to smell his head and kiss his little toes...I love baby toes. I am talking about the baby not the frog. The frog is funny and I understand since you have a house full of boys.

spanki said...

Judy said...

Oh goodness, I thought finding night crawlers in a neat little package in my fridge was bad but a frog in the washer . . that's kinda gross.
