The Little Twins Love Laundry

E and J love to help Mommy with the laundry. Up until last week, their job has been to gather the laundry from their hamper, and Mommy and Daddy's hamper, and bring it downstairs to the laundry room. They have been asking to learn how to run the washer and dryer for a while now. Over the last couple of weeks, they've been learning. Finally, this week they got it down. They can separate the clothes by color, put the load in the washer, add the soap and turn it on. You can tell by their excitement how proud they are of themselves. Moving the clothes to the dryer is a little more difficult. We have a top loader, and they are still small, so they need Mommy to help them. Get the clothes at the bottom of the washer. They have worked it out between them to alternate running the washer and cleaning the lint trap and turning on the dryer.

Folding clothes are a whole different story, and that is reserved for me. I'm a little particular about how things are folded. They do like to put their dresses on the hangers and put them in their closet. I'm so happy that someone in this house is excited about doing laundry. Though I'm sure it will be short lived.

E and J are extremely independent little girls and are constantly trying to do things on their own. They want to be just like their big sisters and their Mommy. They really don't like being told they are too little to do something. At the mention of that phrase sets their determination to do it, only to prove you wrong. I admire this in them but there are times when they really are too little.
