Seriously.

If you're going out to get quarters to use a public washing machine, you're already doing way more than I would do. I used to stress about always sending DSS home with his clothes washed on visitation week ends. (It was "mandated" from his mom that he return home in the clothes he arrived in, rather than a sub-par change of clothing from our home.) Often that meant doing laundy even if we didn't have a full load just to wash a pair of jeans.

Truly, who cares if he wears the same pair of pants two days in a row. When my DD was a newborn, I was wearing the same pair of sweatpants day and night for a while! You didn't do anything wrong.

Oh, no, I think she's turning me into a spaz, too, these days. :

Why is anyone stressing over washing this kid's suits and towels EVERY day. My son takes swimming and we just rinse the suit and hang it to dry. Then we wash it on the weekend. If your step daughter is old enough to go to camp she is certainly old enough to rinse her suit after swimming at camp. The towel can just be swapped for a clean one and washed when the mother does her regular laundry.
