2 Boys Equals lots of Ickies!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Clorox.

Ah, boys. Can’t live with them, can’t live without them. When the nurse hands you your bouncing baby boy for the very first time, you instantly fall in love with their boyish charm and handsome good looks. After All, they’re freaking adorable right? Dirty hands and scraped up knees, as a mom to boys, we look forward to shaping them up to be gentlemen.  Then, the little guy is finally potty trained and Lord have mercy, it all goes down the toilet from there. Let me introduce you to… THE SKIDMARKS. Tracking Pixel

Oh boy…

When my oldest son was a tween, he begged for boxers. All the cool kids were wearing them, so he had to have them. It was the highlight of that year. I had a solid no, every single time he asked. When he would get upset, all I had to do was take him to the dirty clothes hamper and make him sort the laundry; the colored from the whites. The more he sorted and saw his calzones, he would hang his head down lower and lower.  Yeah, that’s why.

The tighty-whities in my home take a beating. Talk about an environmental biohazard in the washing machine. It took me a while to get used to the unsightly marks.  If I see that they’re beyond the realms of cleanliness, I automatically dump them in the trash.  We’re talking crusty, caked on messes. GROSS. The reality of it all is that it’s still happening and I absolutely must have my handy dandy Clorox bleach at hand. MUST. I can talk to the boys until I’m blue in the face, but we still have to wash the white clothes, right?  It’s a never ending story.
