Once upon a time, but not so long ago, Monday was my 'washing day'. I'd do a week's worth of washing in one day, about three loads (whites, colours, dark) - maybe with an extra load for woolens every now and then.
These days, every day is washing day, with more loads than I can count. Sometimes I might skip a day if I'm out and about. That's never a good thing for the days that follow.
Having baby clothes amongst the laundry is delightful though, there is no denying it.
