Tackle It Tuesday – My Little Laundry Helper

by Susan

Tackle it Tuesday

You’ve likely heard me moan about my laundry woes. I truly hate doing laundry… but I’ve got a couple little helpers who recently have discovered THEY like doing laundry.

This time, I grabbed the camera when Julia decided to be my helper.


The only trouble is that sometimes “little helpers” can seem to slow down the process.

But I’m trying to embrace their excitement for this tedious chore as I know they’ll grow out of it soon.

It may take a little longer, but eventually it gets done.


Sometimes… ;)

The project can be little or big – whatever you want.

Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done.

(It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)

Laundry is the one chore my little girls love to help out with. They always have fun stuffing clothes in the washer and even more emptying the lint trap.

We tackled laundry this week, too, but I was such a mission to get it all done that I completely spaced out about taking pictures! We washed, dried, sorted, folded, and even cleared out everything that no longer fit… and my washing machine and drier are STILL going. It was a day FULL of laundry, let me tell ya!

My youngest (7) has been putting her own clothes away since she was 4. Now, she is learning to start the washer. She gets a nickel a job: 1/2 into savings and 1/2 into her wallet. She is already up to $60 in her savings!

I don’t mind doing laundry which I guess is good since there’s usually plenty around. I have my kids fold their own clothes and once a week 2 of them take turns doing one load – wash, dry & put away. They are older though.

Your pictures of your little girl are cute…

You are so right about the helping slowing it down. I have to remember I am blessed he wants to help. It is an opportunity to get him thinking doing chores is fun and what we do because we are part of a family.
