TG has been lobbying for a dog, but Chris and I told her we didn’t believe she was responsible enough. So she suggested she start doing her own laundry. I readily agreed, much to her surprise. (Although why she was surprised remains a mystery.)
Today I purchased one of those laundry hampers that has different bins for sorting. I figured it wasn’t fair for her to have to dig through the laundry hamper she shares with her brother to find her laundry to do it. So, I put together the hamper and separated out their clothes.
She was shocked, horrified even, when I explained to her the intent behind the hamper. “You mean I really have to do my own laundry?” she said.
Universal rule #128 – Once you get on the responsibility train, you do not get off.
