The end of Dreft

Since Meera was born I've been averaging approximately 15 loads of laundry a week. Now that Margie is helping it's so so so much easier, but it's still a lot of laundry. I don't know how people with sextuplets do it.... anyway.

Tonight is a very emotional night for me. For the first few months after the boys came home I used Dreft to do their laundry. Loads and loads and loads of Dreft laundry. When they hit One, I stopped. But it was not that big of a deal for some reason.

For the first 11 months of Meera's life I have used Dreft to wash her laundry and scentless Bouce to dry everything. All the onsies, PJ's, socks, cute little pants, tops, coats, socks. Mostly clean, terribly dirty, it all got the Dreft. It all came out smelling like baby.

We decided that this enormous jug of Dreft would be the last one and then I would start using the same Tide I use for all our laundry.

Tonight, I did my last load of Dreft laundry. And since we're not having more children, my last load of Dreft laundry ever.

Well, at least until I do my grandkids laundry in 20-30 years!

I can't believe she's almost a year old! There is nothing like the smell of a baby.

At least you hope it's the last one ;-)
