Laundry Laundry La La La La Laaa!

My little Leah is SO observant! Today she decided to help me do laundry. Well, she's seen me do this a hundred times. There's just something about helping Mom put the wet clothes in the dryer and the dirty clothes in the washer. They love doing it! I even set the buzzer on the dryer and then show them how to grab the knob and turn it just enough to the right that the hum of the dryer is stable and you can hear the knocking of zippers and buttons in the drum. Well, today she did more than just assist. She DID it. After Jeremy brought me the clean, dry clothes, she decided to empty the washer by herself. This took quite a while, but she stayed determined. When she finally walked away from her work I could hear the dryer spinning away, giving dull thuds and clanks. I asked Jeremy if he had started it but he said no. I asked Leah and she proudly, and yet cautiously, said yes. I think she mistook my surprise and was scared that she might have done something wrong. She even set the timer! Not bad for a 3 year old.

That's great. Malachi loves to help with the laundry but I only have the top loader for the washere so I still have to be in there to help him move it but he sure loves throwing in the dirty clothes. He likes to pretend he is playing basketball. I also have to lift him up to press the go button for the dryer. He gets mad if I do it myself.
