Fourteen years of marriage and doing laundry and I have never, not EVER turned any of my husbands whites pink...
I had just washed my hot pink Banana Republic cardigan and laid it over the back of a chair at the kitchen table to dry. Baby was sitting at the table, coloring. I then turned back to the stove where I was making lunch.
A word of advice:
Never turn your back on a 1-year-and-364-day-old toddler alone with markers.
When I turned around again she was coloring the wooden slats on the back of the chair with a purple marker and my beautiful sweater had purple scribbles all over the back and shoulders.
I quickly grabbed the sweater and doused the scribbles in Spray n Wash, sending up a silent plea. I let it set a few minutes and finished lunch for the kids. When I came back, the purple had disappeared from the sweater and I breathed a huge sigh of relief.
Baby could live to see her second birthday.
Normally, I would wash my sweater with dark colors, but light colors were next in the washer, so I tossed it right in with my husband's favorite white T-shirt with his favorite football team on the front.
And you know what happened next.
But Hubby, pink is the in color this year. Especially for football T-shirts. Really.
