For The Love of Laundry

At the current time, Cadence is my big helper. Whatever chore I am doing, she wants to do too. She loves to do the laundry -all parts of it!

We put a step ladder next to the washer. I take the clothes out of the laundry basket and she stuffs it in the washer. She absolutely loves it when I turn the water on and pour the detergent into the lid. She likes to pour the detergent from the measuring lid into the washer. After a few minutes of the washer going, she likes to open the top and see the bubbles!!! Wow!

When the washer is done, she likes to assist me in hanging it! We have a dryer that works, but during the summer we dried it inside to reduce the heat, energy usage and bills! Plus Chris says his clothes shrink in the dryer.
After the clothes have hung dry, she likes to "fold and roll" the items. I have to refold everything she does, but that's ok. Lastly, she helps me put the laundry back where it belongs. I hope that Cadence wants to still do laundry in 10 years!!!

Oh yeah, you gotta love that kind of help ... so earnest, so cute, so not helpful (but worth it anyway).

That's so awesome! Can I pay her to come do mine?

You are such a good mom. I get too impatient and it bites me in the toushie when I want them to help out. Good for you for letting her do everyhting with you because she will grow to love being a homemaker because of her angel mother!

Your such a good mom Michelle. Now that I'm working in the preschool classroom I have realized I could have let my kids do so much more. The scissors are a great thing for her to do! just keep her cute curls out of the way.

McKayla is a good helper with laundry to. But it sounds like you have more patience than me. We have so much I just like to get it done as fast as I can! She is so cute!
