My Alter Ego

on 01 February 2012

I had a strange realization late Monday night.

Are you ready for it?

I am the Laundry Fairy.

I've been bemoaning the fact that the Laundry Fairy (she who shows up in the night and washes, dries and neatly folds all of the laundry while we sleep) never visits my house for years.  And Monday night, I found myself surreptitiously washing, drying and folding laundry for the whole family and then sneaking into my son's room to put the folded laundry away while he slept.  Then neatly stacking Chris' laundry for him in a chair in the bedroom for him to put away.  And finally folding and sorting and putting away teeny, tiny, no-longer-covered-in-poop-or-pee clothes for the Girl.  That's when I knew that I had a not-so-secret Identity.

And that's also when I knew that it wasn't some sort of undeserving behavior on my part, it's more that I didn't realize that it was really my nocturnal self that I needed to discover.

But I'm curious, am I the only Laundry Fairy out there?

Nope. My alter ego must be very similar to yours... laundry almost never gets done in the daylight anymore. (Thankyouverymuch for that, Eliza.)
