As I mention in my last post, Ricki hangs laundry. Mind you, as with many other tasks that she attempts, its not 100% yet.
- First, any underwear in the basket I hide and hang later on my own, so that I can hang it on an “inside” line, not the outermost one in full public view. I’ll teach her that once she has basic “hanging” down pat.
-Perhaps in an effort to avoid dropping laundry, she tends to over-pin it… too many pins for each item.
-Her biggest problem so far is that she has a tendency to remove hung laundry before it is dry, excited at the prospect of taking the laundry down.
And tonight, I discovered why we suddenly have so few clothes pins: as she removed the still-damp floor mop rags she had hung barely an hour before, I saw her toss the pin downstairs……….
I think some intensive teaching is in order. I just hope she’s in the mood to listen…..
