Matthew helped me with the laundry today. He is always trying to get into the laundry room, so I let him come with me to switch some towels from the washer to the dryer. When I started the dryer, he pulled himself up on a laundry basket to watch the clothes spinning around. It was adorable! I took a few photos so B could see the cuteness!
I spoke with my sister on the phone afterwards when M was taking an epic 2.5 hour nap. She mentioned something that hadn’t dawned on me. She said that she loves it when her kids are seeing something, something that we may find mundane, for the very first time. She said that she forgets sometimes that everything is new to them. I hadn’t really thought about the fact that watching the clothes spinning around and around was probably very enlightening to M. When my sister said this, I pictured all of those neurons firing in his brain!
It appears that I now have quite the helper around the house. I wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂
