Puppylover, my husband didn't agree either but I, too, stuck with it and it didn't hurt them, they learned from it, and it helped me out! I refuse to be anyone's lackey.
Donnaeil...you did you kids laundry until they were 87 years old...My good heaven's girl...that would make you about...110 ....LOL! The sad thing is, I knew what you meant!
I had three children under the age of three (twins then boom...another one) so believe me, they learned at a very early age to pick up their toys. As a matter of fact, they became very self sufficient. I only had two hands and if they wanted something they had to get it themselves. My youngest was walking at ten months old because he there were things he wanted and the twins would get to them first.
They are now married with their own children and they do more of the housework then their wives do. My DIL's thank me quite often for teaching them that a washer and dryer are more than a place to set a power drill.
