Proof That I Haved Earned the Title "MOM"

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.

And I...

I did NOT refold them, nor do I plan to.

I think I am now a REAL Mom!
