    I did a lot of ironing in the 1980s. Even then, I did not fold clothes after I ironed them, because that would wrinkle the clothing and defeat the whole purpose of ironing them. Whenever I iron the few clothes I have left which need it, the clothes go right off the ironing board and onto the hanger. Likewise, if I iron any of my kids clothes, I just put it straight on the hanger in their closet.

    Jeans and tees don’t WANT to be ironed and folded. They prefer to live in their natural state, and I prefer to let them.

    Yes, Ellie, he’ll look like a mess but it will be a reflection on YOU.

    My mom always bought permanent press. She hated to iron.

    All Elly does is complain, complain, complain. She isn’t funny.

    @nananbob

    She is not complaining, she is a mom trying to teach her children and frustrated by their lack of respect for her hard work. You are most likely male and thankfully not part of my family.

    Now that my children are in their twenties, the have a much better understanding of taking care of their clothing and belongings – especially now that they are buying and not us.

    Elly, have Michael help you with the laundry so he has more appreciation for what you do.

    I am with you, except my kids had to put their own laundry away as soon as they could do so. Hanging items had to be hung in the closet, not laid on the bed to put away “later” (whenever that might be).

    I think this was re-written. I don’t think the term “casual” was in vogue the first time around.

    All you do is troll, troll, troll. You aren’t funny.

    Why is Elly always so stressed and angry at her kids? She should take a breath and enjoy them while they’re young. I I know April will be coming along in a few years, but Michael and Elizabeth need a more relaxed mom.

    By the time my kids reached their teens, they were doing their OWN laundry. Oldest boy was a slob (like this Michael) while middle son was a neatnik. All 4 now do fine.
