I am a label person. I am also a big believer in child labor ;) Now that BB is older, he has started helping out with things like the laundry. One way he helps with the laundry is by getting the clothes hamper out of my closet. In my closet, I have 4 hampers, one for each type of wash load. Each hamper holds 1 load worth of clothes. When the hamper is full, I know it's time to wash that type of clothing. So I'll start the water, and tell BB which hamper to get:
"Go get the hamper with the 2 on it, etc." I'll tell him. It's something that I could easily do myself, but I want him to get used to doing what he can do around the house.
And the word labels? Those are for DH ;)
