the little joelle that could

(Joelle loves helping me fold laundry. Her job is usually passing me each individual item from the laundry basket so I can fold it. With this particular 'hamper', she has to reach quite far to get the last items from the very bottom. Sometimes it can prove to be quite the task. But she's always up for the challenge!)

I think I can....

I think I can....

A-HA! Victory!

Cute. Glad to see you got your laundry folded. Did it find it's way to the dressers yet? :)
My girl like to help fold laundry too but she actually wants to fold, not just pass. I have to restrain myself from re-folding it all.

HILARIOUS!

the other day i was folding laundry and Jordan was standing there talking to me. i finally said, "hey why don't you help me while we talk?" and she replied, "no thanks i like watching i know when i am a mom i will have plenty of laundry to fold"

she's got that right!!

Have you told her that she can grab things with her hands instead of her mouth? That might make the job a little easier!! You're lucky she just wants to hand you stuff. Peanut likes to fold, but always ends up crumpling whatever she's folding. And Fidget likes to UNfold what I've done and then RE-fold it HER way, which is to roll it instead of fold it. Needless to say, I prefer NOT having their help with this task!!

I love when the kids want to help fold the laundry and don't look at as a chore like we do! Have a great weekend, see you on Sunday!

That is cute! I love that she is helping and so determined!

dang! The challenge is almost over! I think all I did was teach my kid that blogging is so important to mommy!

LOL! Aren't you glad you got that in pictures! It's moments like those that make up our day to day lives, and yet we forget them so easily.

Thanks for sharing!

Oh my gosh, too cute! I kept waiting for a picture of the basket upright with her legs sticking out the top because she fell in.

So cute! I remember helping my mom with laundry too. We had a large clothes hamper that was always hard to get to. Never got stuck in it though!

Have a great weekend!
