|Chaz putting away a load of laundry|
Ryan was soooo easy to teach. To make it easy I basically told him to just divide them up in only two piles, darks and lights. I made arrows on the washer and dryer with numbers on them so they would know which buttons to press first. It was so easy Ryan got it right away. He was so excited to learn it all that he didn't even want me helping him after his first load. (Not sure how long that'll last. haha)
Then I told them that after it's done drying they need to put it right away. Not leave it out anywhere. Between the 3 boys they get all their clothes washed really fast. Many hands make light work. That leaves me to only wash linens, mine and Charles' clothes, and the girls. That's still a lot but at least not as much as before! lol.

In our house when kids are helpers, they are called Hero Helpers. Kids that are willing to pitch in with a smile on their face and a good attitude are my little heroes because they lessen my load just a little bit. When every one does their part, it is huge for me. :)
