Mrs. Wishy-Washy

MrsWishyWashy

One of my favorite books to read at story times for toddlers is Mrs. Wishy-Washy by Joy Cowley and illustrated by Elizabeth Ann Fuller.  I read it many times to ML in her preschool years.  Mrs. Wishy-Washy likes for things to be clean.  Whenever her animals get muddy, she puts them in the washtub.

Yesterday, I felt like Mrs. Wishy-Washy.  Although it was bedding and stuffed animals I was washing, not muddy farm animals.

In went the quilt.  Wishy-Washy.  Wishy-Washy.
In went the sheets.  Wishy-Washy.  Wishy-Washy.
In went the matress pad.  Wishy-Washy.  Wishy-Washy.
In went the sleeping bag.  Wishy-Washy.  Wishy-Washy.
In went the stuffed animals.  Wishy-Washy.  Wishy-Washy.
In went every towel we own.  Wishy-Washy.  Wishy-Washy.

Into the outdoor trashcan went the white blanket… triple-bagged.  Even Mrs. Wishy-Washy couldn’t have cleaned it.

Thankfully, ML bounced back quickly.  Sadly, she shared with her mama.  The washing machine’s been going for two days straight.  And there is a strong scent of bleach in the air.
