When you pass down clothes, laundry day is tough for Daddy! He’s very confused as to who now owns what.
Two weeks ago while working, I watched from my desk as Michael proceeded to hold up articles of clothing and quiz our 4-year-old: Is this yours? What about this? What about this?
Because we do hand stuff down Michael isn’t sure who is currently wearing what. You would think size would make it obvious, but not always. He finds tunic dresses and swim suit cover-ups particularly confusing.
I think because I do the swapping of the clothes from big sister to little sister I know who is now wearing what, but it’s all a surprise to him.
Underwear definitely presents a problem a for him. I think he divides it up randomly. He must think Rose has a giant bottom because she often gets mine and Lilina often gets Rose’s. Walsh is the only one safe from the rotating underwear game.
I am very grateful that Michael does the laundry and I don’t have to deal with it, but I do enjoy his head-scratching over matching the right child with the right clothes.
Does Daddy do the laundry at your house? Does he have a hard time figuring what belongs to whom? Are the hand-me downs the problem?
