Today we are doing OODLES of laundry and packing for our trip. In the interest of teaching Kaleigh some fine motor skills and to get more done in less time, I showed her how to fold hand towels and washcloths, and then I let her loose on all of them.
Now, try to visualize a pile of hand towels folded by a three year old. Now visualize a perfectionist Mommy with an anxiety order plus obsessive compulsive disorder. When I fold towels, the corners match up perfectly, the folds are pristine, and they stack on top of each other exactly.
These towels... not so much.
I did NOT refold them, nor do I plan to.
I think I am now a REAL Mom!
