Have you Ever Prayed over a Load of Wash?

It's Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have NOT been doing (but really have!).

Around here:

My 2 year old did NOT somehow go pee-pee on his beloved stuffed Big Duke last week.

The one he has to have to go to sleep every night.

And the sidekick Big Duke that looks just the same does not work as a replacement. Bring the identical stuffed bulldog, just a little newer, to my toddler and you'll hear, "THAT'S NOT BIG DUKE!"

And so my situation with the peed on Big Duke was a tricky one.

I've never washed Big Duke before. He was a fairly cheap stuffed animal and I've always been afraid he wouldn't survive the wash.

Right before I snapped this picture, as I pulled the knob to start the load, I said a prayer for mercy and that God would bring Big Duke out okay.

Praise God he survived not only a trip through the washer, but the dryer, too!

Just in time for nap, Big Duke was slightly cleaner looking and MUCH better smelling!


  1. So funny! I'm glad that Big Duke came out of the wash okay!

  2. LOL! I am soooo glad Big Duke survived!
    Summer :0)

  3. That is too funny! Glad he came out alright.

  4. Thank goodness Duke survived! I've said that same prayer many times over a Larry the Cucumber stuffed animal in the last 8 years.

  5. I would have prayed over the washer too!

  6. I have prayed for stuffed animals too. Its amazing how many strange things we have to wash (or wash by accident) when you have toddlers.


I'd love to hear what you think!
