Yes, my girls get pretty happy when they see me with a basket of clean laundry. Do they care that much about clean socks and underwear? They couldn't care less! What they love is the prospect of being showered with piles and piles of clean clothes. (It's especially great if I am on the ball about getting it out of the dryer in time, and the clothes are nice and warm)
And why not? It all needs to be folded and sorted anyway. They sit close together and wait for me to dump it all on their heads. Lots of giggles. No creativity, time or clean-up required on my part. Perfect.
This post is inspired by my friend Rebekah at The Golden Gleam who writes a fun series called Joy in Minutes with lots of easy, simple ways to bring joy to your family.
