This is something that will only work if you are a certain kind of mom (silly) with a certain kind of kid (silly). I am, so I'm throwing this out there.
Choclo recently told me, with great delight, that he had discovered a fast and easy way to put away his clean clothes. "I find the emptiest drawer, and then I put the whole pile in. And then I'm done!"
I have long suspected that a number of my children use this method, but he was the first to tell me about it.
At the time, we were only a week away from the clothing shift, so I only commented that it might seem faster, but it wasn't a good long term solution.
Last Saturday, I did the big seasonal clothing shift.
Choclo is still young enough (8) that I do most of the work for him, and just call him when it's done.
As we were walking up the stairs to see his new exciting wardrobe (he went up to size 10!), I explained the importance of caring for pets.
When he had a pet, he had to make sure to feed it exactly what it needed. If he fed it the wrong thing, it might get sick!
Then I introduced Choclo to his new pet: Bureau.
Each drawer is carefully labelled with exactly what it needs to be fed!
Choclo thought it was hilarious.
We'll see how well Bureau gets fed...
