Laundry-A-Thon

The race is on...

I'd run out of detergent last Wednesday and didn't pick up more until yesterday. Now I'm paying for it.

Lights, colors, bleach...lights, colors, bleach...

May the best woman win!

Oh how I hate when that happens! If I ever miss even one day, the laundry seems to breed in the hampers! Good Luck!

Anon 1, I know what you mean. Anon 2, Wow! That's a reason to keep blogging if I ever heard one. You know, it really helps me, too. God bless you and your family. Anon 3, I have the boys fold towels and pillow cases. When I was a new mom, though, I went to help out an older mom with lots of kids. She had them all folding their own clothes and putting it all away. I was amazed.

My oldest has been doing his laudry since he turned 8 (dad's decision). I have them start at 4 or 5 by switching it for me (from the dryer to a basket, from the washer to the dryer, from the hamper to the washer...it only works because we have front loading washer). Then by 5 they start putting it away after I have folded it or put it on a hanger. Around 6 we introduce sorting. At 7 they start learning how to fold it themselves. It has worked well thus far.
