As mothers, we all have our thing that we absolutely hate doing, right? For some, it might be cooking, or vacuuming, or emptying the dishwasher, or doing a craft, or scheduling doctor’s appointments. For me, it is folding and putting away laundry. I know, conceptually, that I can fold an entire basket of clothes during an […]
