Starting Early

Owen loves helping with the laundry (sorting, diving in the piles, starting the machine, watching the spin cycle). Scott decided to get Josh started early, too...

Of course, this is quite similar to the way that Owen got involved with the chores back when he was also about 6 months old... here.

You know, doing laundry together is one of the best ways Calla and I can both get stuff done at the same time. She likes to "help" me pull clothes out of the machine, so we can talk about colors, label items of clothing, and help find things that are "the same" (i.e. pairs of socks). Then Calla gets to help me carry the bins into the bedroom. We get some good learning in, and I actually get the clothes moved from the bin into the machines, washed, dried, folded, and put away! (Just don't tell them, when they're older, that we made them do housework this early, or they'll demand back pay on their allowance!)
