J "Help Laundry"
Now it takes forever to unload and load the dryer. J LOVES his new job! He even remembers the dryer sheets and cleaning the lint trap. You have to watch him because in our house, we throw our dirty clothes into a pile on the floor next to the washer, which is next to the dryer. We're trying to teach J the distinction between picking up a clean sock he just dropped on the floor and putting it into the basket, and the dirty socks three feet over we *really* don't want him touching. Flipping the laundry 'round now takes nearly ten minutes, but it's about a hundred times cuter than doing it the old-fashioned way by yourself. Elf and Emperor have the job of folding all washcloths. I put Patrick's laundry away as a matter of course as I fold the laundry on his bed and it's just easier to stuff into his drawers (located under his mattress). It's kind of a "thank you" for his putting up with piles of laundry all over his room all day.
