chores, chores, chores....

sometimes I think we over compensate for feminism with our kids and forget the beauty in the small things that life is all about. the other day, I came home from my store to find my mother in law and my daughter on the front porch...hanging out laundry! they had rigged up a clothes-line between two pots, and a bucket of soapy water and there they were doing laundry...franny was as happy as could be and so very proud of herself to look like mommy and hang out her laundry (all her dolly clothes!...even some hand-knit doll sweaters...yikes!) but it was the cutest thing and so simple...'nana' said that they had been at it for hours!
hanging, washing, hanging, washing!

just a simple summer idea!
