A Story: The Backwards Laundry Switch

I asked my 11 year old son to switch his laundry a little while ago and just realized that he didn’t bring the clothes that were in the dryer, upstairs.  I asked him what he did with the dry clothes and he said he put them back in the washing machine.  I asked him why he did that and he said “Mom, they were in the dryer for like a week”.  “Huh?”, I said.  He said “Mom, you always tell me to re-wash clothes if we left them in the washing machine over night because they’ll smell”.   I couldn’t get on to him after saying that.  I just couldn’t.   I didn’t know what to say.
He was either seriously not thinking about the difference between clothes being left in a washing machine for a few days and clothes being left in a dryer for a few days or he was being really lazy.  Either way, I laughed it off because it was actually pretty funny and I’m sure he won’t do it again.  Or will he?

My daughter decided that she needed to dry her crayons since she got them wet by dropping them in her wadding pool. While I was not looking she put them in the dryer with the whites I had in there. I did not find them until the buzzer went off to let me know the clothes were dry. New way to tie dye I guess since I had blue, orange, yellow and purple all over my whites.
