Laundry and diapers...

I've heard about it happening and the mess it makes but never thought it would happen to me!  
I washed a disposable diaper in the washing machine today.  I hate laundry, it's never get the whole pile done to have everyone change into pajamas at the end of the night and WHAMMO - another load or two (we have a family of five).  

I thought I would get all of the laundry today done with a positive attitude.  When the dryer buzzed I told myself "go get it out and fold it, it will feel good once it is all done."  So, I did.  I put it on the bed for folding and then went to move the clothes in the washer into the dryer.  The top layer was fine but as I got deeper down I saw all of these little gel pieces.  I am thinking to myself "what could these be...".  As I get more and more out the gel pieces start falling off of the clothing onto the carpet...and then...the culprit!  A diaper!  How did it get in there?  Was it wrapped in one of the blankets I washed, how could I miss it?  Was it clean or dirty?  So many little answers.  

I ended up throwing what was left of the diaper in the trash, putting all of the wet clothes in a basket and shaking them out one by one.  Now, I am rewashing them to make sure I get it all out...not sure what would happen if it were to end up in the dryer.

Ahh...the joys of laundry.

Ahhh..I hate when random stuff makes it's way into the laundry. This weekend my bf managed to wash his wallet...this is why I tell him not to do laundry :) (besides the fact that he thinks you can wash EVERY color together on cold)!!!
