In Praise of My Daughter, Natural-Born Laundress
Laundry folded by my daughter this week.
My daughter learned how to do the laundry at the age of 10, since I was working long hours. She washed the laundry, got it into the dryer, and then folded it--perfectly. She likes to have things in clear rectangles or squares. Everything is sorted by its particular category. Needless to say, she did not learn this from me. She does ironing, too! Her neatness does not extend to all realms--not even up the stairs to her room. Now she is almost 20. However, her beautifully folded laundry is always a pleasure to me -- which just goes to show you the way in which small things can be a gift of love to others. She's a treasure in lots of big ways, too.
