Airing our Dirty Laundry

So contrary to what Todd believes -
there is NO such thing as The Laundry Fairy,
unless he wants me to start wearing wings.

So I ask you, is having your child sort the laundry -
child labor or a learning opportunity???

I vote that it's a learning opportunity. At least for now.

Gracie loves to sort. I mean, she REALLY loves to sort.
She sorts anything that can be sorted.
M&Ms, crayons, candles, diapers, coins, etc.

So when our closet floor was
overflowing with laundry.
I asked my expert sorter to help me.
Gracie was thrilled...she loved sorting the color piles.
And I, of course, loved her help.
Now...if I could just teach her to fold.

Here's a video of us keeping it real.
Life isn't always smiling faces, cute stories,
and a kept house.
We have our share of dirty laundry too!

*This video is kinda boring but kinda cute*
I also want to have it for later when Gracie tells me
she doesn't know how to separate her laundry.
