Laundry Lint

“Laundry Lintwas first published in Nanny Magazine (Spring 2019):


I thought I was alone. However, 9-year-old Alex was standing in the doorway to the laundry room as I pulled out clothes full of little white sticky bits from the washing machine.

I grumbled to myself, “Oh for cryin’ out loud. Seriously? Somebody left a tissue in their pocket AGAIN?!”

Alex said, “I don’t know who it was … but whoever it was, he’s really sorry.”


My son, Alex, and me, in need of some serious laundry building The Treehouse (around 2009)
