More Things in My Washer

I guess I shouldn't have complained about all the missing socks yesterday. This is what I pulled out of the dryer today. Apparently I'm not only washing clothes these days, but crustacean parts as well. Oh gosh, I hope it was just a claw when it went in and not a whole crayfish! Ugh. "JACKSON! No more playing by the creek!!!"

Keep your paws and claws clean. That's what my Mom always used to say. Or I just made that up. You'll never know.

pattie said...

Oh my gosh!! I think I would have freaked out if I saw that in my washer....wonder where the rest of it is??

Jennifer said...

OK, I will never complain about all the little rocks my kids bring home and forget about, until I take them out of the washer.

Tammy said...

That's pretty disgusting. I usually only find rocks, Barbie accessories, and husband's earplugs from work.

thoughts and ramblings said...

hahahah. that's disgusting(and hilarious)

LOL

please tell me you RE-washed the clothes.

Scarier than the crayfish claw is the partial finger. Does your family own a chainsaw or just really sharp knives? ;)

Spoodles said...

Oh my word! And I thought the things that emerged from *my* washer were weird...

Thank goodness you don't have a hamster!

Ewwwwww! That reminds me of several years ago when it was a locust year. My kids went crazy collecting locusts and apparently putting them in their pockets. I was seriously traumatized when I realized that all of the little "twigs" strewn throughout my washer were actually insect legs.

Haha! Oh my!

H-Mama said...

Hilarious!

Are you sure that wasn't something left over from your "ocean on a plate"?! ;)

I found the same thing except a little bigger when we moved last month, but it was in my kitchen utensil drawer! Jenn

lololol i recall drowned snakes and lizards and rocks and shells from my sons pockets...

Christy said...

I'm imagining that times three!

I'm going to have to make a rule that the boys (or their Daddy) clean out their own pockets before I wash. Eewww!

I'm thinking that before the little guy lost his claw, he was hiding in your dryer stealing socks! Blasted little crayfish sock monster! Heehee!

Donna said...

hee hee hee........better than gum in the dryer.......

I had to laugh when I saw the crawfish claw. It took me back to the 70's/80's when my sons were in scouts. We used to boil the crawfish they caught and serve them as part of their dinner. (Crawfish are an acceptable fair for a main dish in the South). From this we Mom's made a little booklet filled with our Mothers' and Grandmothers' recipes for preparing and service crawfish. We wanted to have 101 entries but came up short and made up a few and gave our composite the title
"100 Ways to Prepare Crawdads." Now we can update the old version (If I can find a copy) and publish "101 Ways...."

Kristine said...

LOL! Almost as bad as the ROACH (*gag*!) dh found in the washer this week! No, we do not have an infestation like that - they come in from outside! (double gag!)

so, ew, nuf said.

I meant to comment yesterday about the socks. I have four kids, and can totally relate. That's pretty much my evenings, matching socks. But, have you ever seen these: http://www.sockpro.com/sockpro.htm

You can keep your socks together in the wash!! I use it now, and LOVE it! Here's a link to my blog where I rave about it:

Good luck!

First can I say EWWWWW!!

Second I caught one of my girls sneaking a crab carcass she stole from seagulls into the car last time we were at the beach.. And she's 9! When does it end?!

Kenny and Chrissy said...

Your posts are so entertaining! I have to ask, what age of child do you enjoy most? What age is the worst? I have a 22 month old and I think the terrible twos have begun (though I've heard three is much worse).

Shellie said...

Wow, you finally pulled something out of your dryer I never pulled out before! Not many crustaceans around here.

Stephanie said...

Ugh! That may just be worse than crayons in the dryer!

Brenda said...

Hmm. I thought those were dry clean only. Good to know.

Robin said...

When I read your blog I just shake my head and laugh. I can't believe the things your kids do! I LOVE IT!!!

The pic came up before the text did and I thought it was a tooth. That would be one scary tooth, though, and we would all wonder which kid missed a few dentist appointments or ate one of the crazy 'speriments.

I continue to pull stink beetles from our washer and dryer. My fourth loves the bugs we call "Butt Beetles" and puts them in her pockets. I wash them on a bi-weekly basis and often dry them too. I should probably check pockets before washing, but the thought of pulling a live bug from a pocket is much more frightening to me than a freshly laundered dead one.

Bobbi said...

OMGosh!!! LOL!

Amy said...

Well, I can't say I have ever pulled a claw from the washer... usually it's quarters, hair ties, sheet rock screws, drill bits etc. Once I missed a pack of chewing gum and it made its way to the dryer - what a fun melted mess that was!

Stephanie said...

Oh my, lol!

Ok so I have to pull a phrase from the kids and said "LOL!!! You said Crayfish!!" Come visit me in New Orleans and we'll teach the kids to eat their Crawfish not play with them....Well you can play with them until they are ready to cook :) Awww good old drunken crawfish boils :)
