I’ve been a bit of a rebel today….i decided not to do a load of washing! Yep, you read right! For someone who does at least a load of clothes and then a load of nappies each day….this was huge for me!
Washing has become a habit each morning like making breakfast….yes i know i sound a little out of my mind here….but oh the freedom….the joy of being a rebel and saying no to washing even though it is a ‘good washing day’ as my Gran used to say…sunny with a breeze! I keep looking out to the line and catching myself as i realise i don’t need to hang out washing or bring it in…or the biggie…fold it! I never knew ignoring a chore could be so liberating and i know there is at least one parent out there reading this that understands these ramblings!You get it, i know you do…want to walk on the wild side with me?
Of course…i will pay for it tomorrow when i have twice the washing to do…..but that’s tomorrow isn’t it?
OK, i have collected myself now….been a little tired of the housework lately in case you didn’t guess! For this Thrifty Thursday i wanted to share a quick and easy toddler threading activity with you!
The toddler twosome are always interested in fine motor type activities but they are at a tough age….they know what they want to do but their eye hand coordination often isn’t quite there yet so although it’s great to provide challenges for young toddlers it is also good to provide some ‘steps’ for them to climb and conquer along the way first to build up their confidence.
Ruby isn’t at the same stage as Tara with fine motor activities yet but she had just as much fun with this activity in her own way and that is the beauty of open ended experiences!
I think i am going to wander by the clothesline one more time and just savour the freedom….hope you are having a great day too!
