Buried Treasure

While I was washing dishes I asked Jon to have the girls help him get the towels in the wash. So they did help him get the towels in the wash. They hunted for treasure (towels) and then buried it (put it in the washing machine). It was very cute and even though it took at least twice as long as it would have taken me, I didn’t mind since everyone was having fun and my job at the time was washing dishes and not supervising the girls doing laundry, though I did remind them that there were more towels in the bathroom than what they originally found.

It reminds me that I need to have the girls help me more often. I know they can handle more responsibility, it’s the time it takes to do things with them or to have them do things that makes me forget to have them help me. I do make them clean up after themselves in some ways, but they don’t help with the dishes or laundry regularly, besides putting their dishes in the sink and putting their clothes away.
