I’m not sure what to say about this because I don’t know if I should be impressed with myself that I thought of it, or asking why I didn’t think about it sooner?
Every night when the little ones get their baths, tiny pants and shirts and socks are dropped on the bathroom floor. This is not a big deal to me. I don’t think about it, but every morning I’m in the habit of picking up the clothes and putting them in the laundry basket in another room. It’s not hard to do, but I’m not exactly teaching my kids good habits in the first place.
Then one day it struck me, “Why don’t I put the laundry basket where the clothes are dropped? Do I work for this house, or does the house work for me?”
I put the laundry basket in the bathroom where they can use it, and now there are no more clothes on the floor. It took me a few years to think of this, but I still don’t know what to do about the clothes left in the living room.
