14 seems to be the age when my children become disdainful of my laundry services. I don't mind doing laundry and all I ever ask of the kids is that they sort their laundry into the laundry baskets when it's laundry time and then to put away the clean folded clothes that I set on their beds. When Brenna turned 14 I caught her putting the clean, folded clothes back into the laundry basket to be washed again, instead of putting them away. Ding, Ding, Ding - time to learn to do you own laundry! With Zack it's a little bit different, he's just too darn lazy, or distracted or "busy" to get his clothes into the baskets... It's not like it's a surprise that he needs to sort his laundry. I put the baskets out on Friday night and I do laundry on Sat afternoon. Doesn't seem like to hard a task to sort his clothes... but he didn't...so Ding, Ding, Ding... time to learn to do his laundry! My little boy is growing up!
