Day 39 - School...The Bad

This beast and I have had to become re-acquainted.

12 shirts and 6 pairs of culottes.  Need I say more?

Do you think anyone will notice if I just iron the front of their clothes?

Is it bad that even for their Very First Ever day at Big School I only ironed the front???


Susan, Mum to Molly said...

LOL, I ironed for that wedding recently and Wendy, who'd never seen such bizarre behavior, said: "mum, what are you doing??"

An hour later we were in the car and I was putting on makeup and again Wendy pipes up: "mum, what are you doing??"

There is no ironing of schooliforms in our house. They come out of the machine, onto hangers to dry and then onto bodies to be worn...

If this is not an option for you then I would say that just ironing the front is a-ok.

Sarah said...

Not at all!

I would just hang them up after washed and hope for the best!

Ironing is 1 of 2 things I cannot do or stand! The other is sewing!

I didn't even own an iron until my MIL from UK came out a few years ago and she got me one.

Looking at that photo is enough to make cringe!

Missy said...

I am with you Sarah, I NEVER iron. I wash,hang and fold!

I also would certainly probably just iron the front too!

Sarah said...

Oh forgot to add my all time worst thing...shower cleaning! So that makes 3!

I don't iron school uniforms! I just hang them on a hanger and they're done!

Put them in the dryer for 2 minutes before hanging and that will get out most of the wrinkles.

I wonder if it is illegal to teach seven year olds to iron.

Form an angry mob with all the other parents and demand the school introduce more sensible uniforms.
