How many loads of laundry do you do in day? A week? There are 5 kids here who live like they are in a fashion show- and our washer is broken- it will not be fixed for a week.
I told the kids they could not change their clothes more than once a day and for the love of all that is holy to stop leaving clothes on the floor if they decided that they do not want to wear something. They looked at me like I had three heads.
"what if we get dirty?" they asked.
"then be dirty." I answered
"what if we get wet?" they asked
"then be wet" answered
It is like stuck them in a whole new culture. Or stuck them in the past. I reminded them that long ago kids did not have drawers and closets full of clothes they had maybe three outfits-- and that was it. They are acting like I am taking away indoor plumbing--- which I think may be easier for them.
