Laundry: a family affair

January 31, 2012 at 9:59 AM 3 comments

Last night we were doing laundry and De-Ann brought a basket full of dry clothes into the living room. She started folding clothes. Both kids wanted to help so De-Ann gave the kids each pieces of their own clothing to fold. It was so fun watching the kids each fold the clothes.

It is fun to watch both kids personalities show up in even something as simple as folding clothes. Faith crumples up the clothes and drops them into the laundry basket. Shawn on the other hand meticulously folds the sleeves into each other and then folds again, and again and again until the shirt he is folding is a tiny little square. Then he gently places it into the laundry basket.

At the end of our folding experience the laundry basket looked just like it did before we folded the clothes. haha. After the kids folded the clothes I discretely took the clothes out of the basket and re-folded them but without the kids seeing. They were too busy folding more clothes.

I think this is a glimpse into how much our kids will be involved in the care of our home. I also think they will gladly do their chores when we finally start to give them out. We are so blessed as parents!
