Most of our kids are now in charge of doing their own laundry. There has been voiced resistance to this change (straight out refusing to do laundry, threats to wear dirty clothes, and pleading for me to do the laundry one more time and then this change can start), but I have stuck to my decision. Zoe and Emily have clean clothes to wear tomorrow thanks to their hard work today doing their own laundry. :-) Eleanor is looking forward to doing her laundry tomorrow. Noah should do his own laundry since he changes his outfit often and of course gets every piece of clothing dirty that he wears!
I could relate to the comments this evening while Zoe and Emily did their laundry. Comments like..."Why are my clean pajamas in the laundry basket??? I didn't put them there!" I am constantly putting away clean pajamas and clothes that I find in the laundry baskets.
Then I hear, "I am putting clean clothes away...get out! Don't step on my clean clothes!" Oh yes, the joy of children flopping on clean clothes while trying to put them away. Welcome to my world.
