|Pack N Play Confessions|
I need accept myself, and accept the fact that my Pack N Play will never be used as a proper playard for my child (for any time period of longer than a day, after which it will be filled with my clean clothes, and my child’s clean clothes, once again).
Am I really so tired and/or lazy that I can’t gather the mental focus to fold a hamper of clothes? Yes.
|These Are My Pack N Play Confessions|
Sometimes, I even chuckle, and nod my head, as I hear those judgmental mommies roar about how “unnecessary these Pack’N’Play devices are” – because “after all, you don’t need a Pack’N’Play if you just watch your baby.” I don’t speak up when I hear this chatter, but that’s only because I have needed to make myself feel better about my terrible laundry habit – the shame! It’s like my dirty little secret: I think the Pack N Play is fantastic (for more reason than one), and I would use the Pack N Play if I could break my habit of using it as my [greatest] laundry hamper of all time.
Dear America, I am no longer ashamed of my love for the Pack N Play, no matter how I choose to use it.
I love my Pack N Play almost as much as I love yoga pants (see My Love Letter to My Yoga Pants for more on that).
But I do long for a more organized laundry-keeping system…
- If only I were strong enough to resist the temptation of Pack-N-Play’s desirable, large-capacity hamper.
- If only I were motivated enough to put away my laundry once my clothes left my dryer.
But I’m not, because, guess what? It’s just way easier to use the Pack N Play as my secondary closet. I love it. I admit it. It’s the greatest laundry hamper that I have ever owned (it doesn’t overflow!). It’s fantastic, aside from the whole part of it being a complete “eye sore” and in my living room, but for now – this is who I am and loving yourself, despite your own flaws, is important.
I love you, Pack N Play.
