"My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint." -Erma Bombeck

Will someone please explain to me where does it say in my Mommy Manual that I am to check all pockets before I put them in the washing machine. Now, I know some of you moms/wives do this as second nature, I am not one of those. What precipitated this post? Why the following conversation I had with my oldest HELLION TERRORIST son, Nicklaus:

Just to set the scene properly, I carried pieces of a laser pointer/flashlight/ pen to him. Needless to say, it did not work anymore after being laundered. The item was bought by his dad for him and it cost around 4 bux at the place we do not speak of. It looked pretty much like this when I gave it to him:

Momz: "Nicklaus, I found this in the dryer. It doesn't work anymore. You have to remember to clean out your pockets."

Nicklaus: "Mom, why didn't you check my pockets???"

Momz: "Because I didn't. I do enough around here without having to remember to check pockets. Go ask you Dad how much stuff he's gotten messed up because he left it in his pockets."

Nicklaus: "Daaaaad"

Joey: Son, that's a battle you won't win. I've tried. Check your pockets from now on."
