I am starting to think that maybe I should get the boys to do their own washing as I had been starting to think it was never ending.
Every so often I remember that you have to make sure you are very careful what you say to children as they don’t always interpret things how you think they might.
Sammy has been very keen to put his dirty laundry into the washing basket in his bedroom for a very long time, if he’s in the right mood he’ll even help Tim to do his.
So we have moved onto the next steps, after a bath now while Mummy and Daddy hang the towels or tidy anything else in the bathroom that needs sorting Sammy takes the dirty clothes and puts them in the washing basket.
I didn’t think anything of it when I had placed a pile of clean folded clothes on his bed. I asked Sammy to go with Daddy and help put the washing away, unfortunately before Daddy got there half of the nice clean clothes had been put into the washing basket. Well you can’t fault him he was trying to help and in the past ‘washing’ has always gone in the washing basket!
Another example of Mummy must think more carefully before she speaks.
