The kitchen is usually out of bounds for the girls. It’s the only place we have a stairgate in our house to separate the lounge from the kitchen.
Whenever the girls either sneak through or are on their way to the garden they always go hunting through the cupboards which results in everything everywhere so they don’t spend much time in the kitchen when they aren’t in their high chairs.
I realised how little time they spent when in the week whilst enroute to the garden, they were stopped in their tracks by the whirring of the washing machine. They hurried over and sat transfixed by the rotating whizz it was making. They tried desperately to touch the washing inside and giggled loudly when the spin kicked in and the washing went super quick.
I remember when I was small watching my cabbage patch boy doll in the washing machine. He was a bald doll called Billy and I found it ever so funny that my Mom used to put him in a pillow case to save him crashing and banging about during the cycle. It was lovely to see my girls sat doing exactly what I had years before.
An ordinary but lovely moment. This is the first time I’ve linked up but with Mummy, Daddy and Me I think it’s important to look for the good in everyday tasks and I will definitely be appreciating the ordinary moments more
