How to effectively do laundry

With great power comes great responsibilty, and when one learns how to sit up by one’s self, one must make a mess of everything one comes in contact with.  So says my dear sweet child, Annie.

Annie demonstrates how to effectively do the laundry and sort daddy’s under garments from mommy’s under garments.  I’m just glad we’re sensible people.

Her hands are swift, her focus is on the items in the laundry basket.  If you do this, you will find that your mother will quickly do the sorting and folding for you and if you’re really good she’ll put them away in their proper places.

There is no time for dilly-dally as there is a lot of things to be done and you must be effective and diligent at your work.

If you are able, and if you cannot see inside the basket completely, give it a slight pull on the sides and it will tip forward for clearer viewing.

The “sideways tip” will also allow you to reach to the back of the basket to find the items that you are searching for.

If your arms are still too short to reach, you must get up on your knees and put your face forward into the basket.  Please be careful with this approach as you can easily fall into the basket never to be seen again.

Sometimes you must re-group and try this maneuver again.  But, again, please be careful.

It is not something I would recommend for the more fearful crowd.  Diving in to a basket of laundry can be a risky thing, especially with one’s parent’s unmentionables.

Now you have completed your task.  You have made such a sorting mess of the laundry basket that your mother has gathered everything up off the floor, folded them and put them away.  You may now celebrate in your job well done.

And remember, this was done by professionals.  Kids do not try this at home… and only YOU can prevent forest fires.
