Honestly, I'm just laughing at this.

 

My husband is doing military service this summer, so Baby and I are staying with my parents. I come home from errands to find my father has intercepted the laundry and is in the backyard hanging my load of diapers on the clothesline.

 

I thank him, and he says he is trying to "see if the sun won't bleach them back".

 

I look at the already-bleached diapers--they look nice and white.

 

I then realize he is referring to my collection of unbleached cotton diapers and their tell-tale tan/beige shade.

 

Took me ten minutes to make him understand they came that way.  And the man is so intelligent intellectually.

 

Anyway, it made my day and I wanted to share.
