What on Earth could you learn about your sons in the laundry room other than they are messy eaters, play rough and tumble, or have slid through bases in white baseball pants on a red clay field?

This spot-on "boy mom" will give you the dirt on what really goes on in the laundry room and get you up to speed on the importance of sorting things out, soaking things in knowing which materials to handle with gentle care.
The world is wide open for a toddler to explore, and you may unearth some sticks, rocks, or anything else that may have captivated his attention along the way.
