example the first: our house now has what is referred to as 'the pee blanket'. this is a quilt that we lay on the floor for extended nudey time. the baby pees on it 3-4 times a day, as she loves being naked more than anything. i wash it about twice a week. once it dries, the fact that it has been peed on (again) becomes negligable. my new definition of 'clean' very closely resembles my old definition of 'dry'.
before becoming a mother, i never thought to myself 'oh good, its only pee, i don't have to change my shirt/her onesie/the sheets. but really, how much laundry can one woman do?
