Ricki: -“Mom, I put my clothing in the laundry.”
Me to myself: Oh, GREAT ! Not on the floor. But did she put each color in the right basket (darks and lights separate)? “Oh, let me see!”
I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER.
I arrived in the washroom to discover that Ricki had taken out the half-dry laundry from the dryer, sticking it into a basket, and had put her dirty clothes in the dryer, turning it on.
And she was SO proud of herself.
I deserve that for not teaching her more about laundry earlier.....
