My young lady

This past weekend my daughterItalicer decided that she wanted to learn how to do laundry. You all know my issues with laundry from this post. So after I gave her the disclaimer about how I am very particular about doing laundry she ok'd starting off with the easy loads. She really did good making sure that she listened for the rinse cycle and folded and delivered all the laundry to each person's room. I had to laugh though as several pairs of my husbands underwear ended up in my son's room. When I showed them to her she laughed too. Guess you would have to see how tiny my son's butt is. I swear it's the same size as when he was a baby! I was really proud of her and told her so many times I think she was gagging in the bathroom.

Last night when I got home the washing machine was running. At first I was a little worried but she assured me she didn't touch the special piles that I had set aside. I told my husband that she is becoming the young lady I have been waiting for. OK, let's rephrase that. The young lady that I was expecting when she was only 2. No not me. I don't have high expectations. I don't want people to act the way I think they should.

She's really matured lately and it's nice to see. She still has outbursts with her brother and they still drive me crazy, but this little lady is a keeper.

ps - the young man that was arrested for child pornography- they were pictures his 16 yr old girlfriend sent to him over the internet. Charges are probably going to be dropped due to the fact that she admitted sending them. Pheww!!
