This Explains the Rattle

Our washing machine has been making a horrible rattling sound every time it goes through the spin cycle. It had been going on for about a month and I was tempted to call a repair man.

Then, the other night as I was putting a load of clothes in the machine, I looked in the detergent dispenser. I noticed there was something in there. I reached in and found these...

Colored decorative stones. 63 of them to be exact. I couldn't believe it! Christian had taken them from an unused fish bowl and put each one in the detergent dispenser. All this time I've been wondering what was making that sound.

At first, I was upset because I was thinking about what it could have done to the washer. Then I had a good chuckle over it.

Never a dull moment with my kids around.

  6. I heard a story last week about a mom who went to empty the laundry out of the washer and found a fully grown snake that had crawled up the pipes waiting for her. That makes me feel a lot more loving towards anything my children might put in there :)
