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.....
Ahh, that fine line between telling them you are proud of their initiative and the need to correct what they did.
Hey, that's more than I was doing at age 15 laundry-wise. (*blush*)
