My Baby's Latest Obsession...

We have a washing machine with a glass lid so that you can watch it wash your clothes. I admit it is neat to watch but it has completely blown my 9 month old's mind. I was doing the laundry yesterday and I sat her down on top of the washer for a second while it was running so I could get a dryer sheet (I was right there with my hand on her so relax). She's watching the washer and I said "Whatcha looking at baby girl?" She pointed at the washer and said "Ooh! Mama ooh!" So I stood there with her for a few minutes and let her watch but when I tried to pick her up, she started crying. So we watched it for another minute or two before I just hit the button, shut it off, and told her it was done. When I got in the living room, I told my oldest to go turn the washer back on for me. Now she keeps crawling over to the laundry room door and banging on it saying "Mama oooh!" It's very cute and annoying. What are the chances that she will still be this excited about laundry when she is old enough to do her own? Probably slim to none huh.

I have a front load washer and dryer. My kids love to sit in front of them and try to pick out their favorite clothes as they spin around lol. "There's my Minnie shirt!" "No that's my princess shirt!" "No that's my dinosour shirt!" "No that's Minnie's ear, it's my Minnie shirt!" That's what I hear constantly if they are down in the basement while I'm doing laundry. My sister was over here one day and they were doing that and she said "Don't by them toys, buy them a dryer!" lol.

My 1.5 year old loves watching our front loader "I see, I see" is all I hear when I'm doing laundry. She can reach the buttons though, and is known to turn off the washer mid cycle :(

Oh wow! That's funny. My 3 year olds love to push the buttons so I sit them on top of the washer and tell them what buttons to push to start it. I also let them pour the laundry detergent and fabric softener.

Lol that would be great. My oldest loved doing laundry when he first started doing his own but now the novelty has worn off and he will wear the same shirt for a month if I don't make him wash his clothes.

Ours was a top loader that you could watch as well. I LOVED it and so did our kids. :)
