Saturday Sidebar: Who does the laundry?

This week’s Saturday Sidebar Question comes from World Moms Blog writer Kyla P’an.  She was wondering,

We are by no means slovenly people, we’re just conservative I suppose. Aside from undergarments, workout clothes and socks, many things get refolded and put back in a drawer at the end of the day.
