We have a set of cabinets that are identical upstairs and downstairs. Inside each set is a laundry hamper. We have always used the upstairs one for laundry and the downstairs one has rotated between a dress up bin and dirty laundry holder.
Today Savanna took out the drawer above the hamper to take into her room so she could load it up with all of her extra pens and pencils.
I don't know why, but something about seeing inside through the open drawer hole made me curious. How does that hamper pull out and what is behind it?
There was a whole load of laundry behind the hamper. I could not reach it with my hands. I had to get one of our firepit tools- the long "tongs" to pull everything out.
What was behind there?
12 pair of underwear (including 1 pair of "training pants")
5 pairs of pants (including one size 2 T khaki Sunday pants-it has been over 2 years since anyone has worn a size 2 T. 2 pair of size 5 khaki Sunday pants that Tucker will be able to wear this fall)
4 pairs of shorts
8 shirts (including a shirt of Savannas from 2005 in a size 8)
2 pj pants
1 pj shirt
8 socks (two of which make a complete pair, and 1 adorable baby striped sock that I kept its lonely mate to for the last 4 years & 1 "Sunday Red"of Tuckers that has only been missing for 2 weeks)
I was astounded by all that was behind the hamper. It made me wonder what was behind the one downstairs.
Not as much, but just as amusing.
1 knights shield
1 superman hand
1 batman dart glove thingy
1 raccoon mask
I have laughed and laughed about this all day. You know how "they" say that things get lost in the wash? Our stuff never makes it to the wash!
When Jay got home and I showed him all the things that I had discovered. He laughed too and said it was kind of like a time capsule!
I think I will start checking behind the hamper more often.
