laundry & lazy dayz.

leg warmers c/o Sassy Legs!

Ian has been working lots and lots these days. 
Which means I spend most/all of my time with Greyer. 
Mama likes.
The truth around here is that I get peed on, pooped on, and/or puked on at least once a day. 
I am also still nursing about 6-8 times a day so functional clothing (ie. hand-me-downs from husband) are my best friend.
I do try to get dressed in something presentable at some point before Ian gets home, but some days it just doesn't happen. 
Can we talk a minute about laundry duties once you become a mom?
I'm now averaging 1-2 loads a day when I used to do about one load every other week. 
I usually let the washed clothes lay in the laundry basket for a few days, wondering as I pass by if they will be folded before they are worn and soiled again. 
Probs not cuz that's just how we do.
Gosh oh gosh.
My other new best friends are leg warmers.
These leg warmers.
Cozy for baby and convenient for diaper changes, need I say more?
If you live in a cool climate and have a baby I highly recommend getting a few pairs. 
They also don't soil as quickly since there is zero contact with diaper/mouth which means less laundry for mom.


  1. Your post just gave me an aha moment. I had always thought baby leg warmers were just cutisie patootsie. But they make diaper changes easier! Duh! :o) It hadn't occured to me before. I will definitely be investing in those when I have a babe.

  2. I LOVE the dinosaur leggings!

  3. Love the leggings! Your baby is adorable! Also, I HAVE to do a load of laundry each night because it's literally not possible to get it all finished over the weekend. Who knew little ones could double the laundry load.

  4. Those dino leg warmers are way to cute! Love seeing how Greyer is growing, he is such a doll.


  5. SO cute! he looks like a little baby i used to nanny. :) Love his little leg warmers! Too cute! I'll have to get some for my nephew that is coming in May!

  6. I'm all over the leggings! My husband rarely sees a need for putting pants on my little man since I've been back to work so leggings seem like the obvious option!

  7. Thank you for your sweet comment on our site! This is darling! You baby looks so cute in those leg warmers.

  8. Your bed spread is ADORABLE and those baby leggings are to die for! so cute.

  12. ahhh look at those chunky little legs!! i love chubby babies. they're the best. the skinny ones are a little scary haha
