And the winner of the Living The Dream Giveaway is....

Laura: The (Almost) Amazing Mammarino!!

The guidelines were to comment on what shirt you most relate to and why. This was her response:


Recently, I started going through my mountain of special needs laundry: sweaters, frou-frou church dresses, and the worst - the dreaded stain pile. I don't mind doing laundry, but I DESPISE stain treating. (It doesn't help that I'm a perfectionist and will wash an item 67 times to get out a nickel-sized spot of mustard.) Because of this, I conveniently get all the laundry done except the stained clothes. The pile kept growing and growing until it threatened to topple over and smother us all. Seeing that we enjoy breathing so much, I decided to chip away at the pile. I made some startling discoveries:

- I was further behind than I had thought;

- There were several boy's outfits in the stain pile sized 24 months and smaller (my son currently wears a size 6); and

- I've discovered quite a few hand-me-downs that will fit my 2-year-old little girl (my older daughter is in second grade).

As much as I hate constantly doing laundry, though, I feel so blessed to have a washer and dryer! My most horrible childhood memories are from our bi-weekly trips to the laundromat. Oh, the agony! The torture! (And that was just from the cigarette smoke and country music!)

It's pretty darn nice to be able to throw a load in on the spot when your little urchin urps last night's ravioli all over his white sheets.

And to be honest, it's a blessing to have these piles of laundry. It means that I'm blessed with the little tykes who wear them! I truly am "Living the Dream!"

The other two I like are referee mom and minivan mom (they're pretty much tied for 2nd). My t-shirt size is XL. Thanks for telling us about these great shirts and notecards!

I want to thank everyone for participating!
