When our third child was born, I’m not sure how or when it happened, but my husband took over doing the laundry. I had been doing laundry up until then–just our household division of responsibility. Maybe he needed socks and there weren’t any clean–more likely he just pitched in with what needed to be done.
However, he kept doing the laundry for the next year! This is just one example of how things can be done differently than before you had children, or even how they were done before this baby came along. Make things simpler where you can.
