I have started a new laundry routine.
Our laundry room is in the basement of our house.
I call it the deep dark dungeon.
That means I am hauling laundry up and down two flights of stairs.
It was time to enlist the help of the kids.
I did this for my own sanity, but also to help teach our kiddos.
I started separating the kids clothes into their own baskets once it was washed.
Then it is placed in their room, and they are responsible to fold it and put it away.
Mind you, I still hang everything that needs hanging.
I do that as soon as it comes out of the wash.
The kids have underwear, pajamas, pants and socks to fold.
I even taught this little one how to fold.
At first, I felt so guilty for asking them to help me.
Then I realized that was silly. They wear these clothes.
It is important for them to learn to be helpers.
Helping with a smile is such a good character trait.
It has helped me so much.
It only takes the kids 5 to 10 minutes.
It was taking me 1 hour or longer to fold all the laundry.
Like I always say, many hands make light work.
I appreciate the help of my little ones.
I am thankful that they are so helpful.
I love seeing this little one do it with a smile.
Helping others is how we roll.
