Color me suspicious.
I just came home from a long day of pushing computer keys, on my way to band practice, pretty much expecting that Catherine would have long forgotten my morning plea to start the load of towels and run them through the drier.
You can imagine my shock, then, to find the towels done and the load of lights I’d left by the machine not only washed, but nearly dry.
What’s more, she greeted me by bounding down the steps rather than calling hello from behind her bedroom door.
Pinch me. I must surely be asleep.
I love it when my 10 year old surprises me and cleans her room too. Glad you had help today.
Congrats. I have a 10 year old and love it when she surprises me and cleans her room. 🙂
My boys started doing their laundry at about age 13 when I got tired of their complaining that they had no clean clothes. They had no clean clothing because they didn’t put the dirty stuff in the hamper. So, quick laundry lesson and they did their own. Now they do the laundry in their households. Bill has been known to do a load or two for us.
Basil tries … but there have been a lot of laundry mishaps on his watch!
I don’t hold out too much hope for my boys for doing laundry when they are older, I still can’t get my husband to do it, much less correctly 🙂
I’m jealous, or as my 15yo daughter would say: I’m jelly. Although we did start making her do her own laundry as it seems it is easier to put clothes in the hamper vs back in a drawer….
Yes, we did that several years ago when I found myself washing piles of folded, clean clothes! Her laundry is all hers now. So imagine, she was doing MY laundry today!
