  1. Great deduction …. of what chores really accomplish (i.e. showing joy, teaching children, etc.). Very good points made. I, personally, find ‘ironing one piece of clothing at a time’ a wasteful procedure. Heating iron over & over again, running to laundry room in the middle of busy morning to find piece of clothing needed …. these are a waste of energy and can become very anxiety producing in some types of personalities (like mine, lol). :o) I have always had TONS of ironing. Husband’s work clothes (khaki’s & button down shirts, etc.), children’s uniforms for Christian school, my own clothes … at least 1 to 2 hrs. a week of ironing. I miss those years now, as I am in my 60’s. May you young wives and mothers always cherish these moment with all of your family under one roof, under Christ. It passes SO quickly. So, bottom line: do the ironing. Have things ready to go. All in your family will come to appreciate this!! Blessings in Christ Jesus to all who read sites like these. :o)

    1. I’m inclined to agree with you, Dianne. I don’t do a lot of ironing, but I certainly don’t want to drag out my board and heat up the iron every time something needs pressing. I’d much rather do the ironing once and have everything ready to go when I need it. That was how my mom did things, and I assumed it was how everyone did them, until my friend shared her different, but understandable, perspective.
