I will be the first to admit that Sophie has only owned one top which required ironing, the pretty bow and structure of it needed some pressing. All of her other clothes are just so little and seem to end up (almost) wrinkle free after hanging on the line.
One thing I will NOT do is iron her bibs.
I took some of Sophie’s clothes including a few bibs to my Mums in a desperate plea for her to get the carrot stains out of them. Mum to the rescue. She succeeded and when I was at her house last week she was ironing and proceeded to point to Sophie’s clothes on the dining table.
Mum - ‘There are her clothes sweetheart, all clean and ironed’.
Me - ‘Awesome, thanks Mum! Aahhhh Mum did you iron her bibs?’
Mum - ‘Of course, I iron everything.’
I then had to admit that I don’t iron any of Sophie’s things and especially not her bibs, what will it be when she is toilet trained, ironing her undies??
I of course am grateful for Mum going to the extent of ironing them but this is definitely not something I will be starting.
This came up in conversation on Saturday night when I was out with the girls and one of my girlfriends admitted to doing this when her boys were young.
Am I the only one that doesn’t go crazy with ensuring her babies clothes are wrinkle free?
Do you iron absolutely everything?
I have a friend who irons tea towels … now that’s just plain crazy !!
