Thanks for the help

I was out of town for a few days. We went to Fort Worth to visit my sister, brother-in-law, and my sweet niece. We had a good (though short) visit, but it is so nice to come back to the comforts of home!

While we were there, Isabella and I were hanging out in the guest bedroom. She was looking at the clothes in my suitcase and holding them up to her head like she was going to put them on.

"Sut?" she asked as she held up various items, trying to find a shirt.

By the time we were done with that game, the majority of my clothes were strewn on the bed, and she hadn't even found anything she wanted to wear.

Later, Daniel came in. I had my hands full, so I asked him to put my stuff back in my suitcase and move it out of the way. He began to cram various items into my bag. Cram. Cram. Cram.

Now, I never turn my nose up at wrinkled clothes, but COME ON! I should have just let Bella do it.

That is why Bella is a firm believer in going naked at all times. Makes packing for trips so much easier!

It's the same as when you ask both boys at my house (the little one and the big one) to clean up the toys on the floor before we go to bed. The little one actually puts things back where they belong while the big one just shoves them in a spot, hoping they'll stay and not fall out!

Oh, how precious is she!!!

Men are so silly.....I think they do things like that on purpose so that they never have to do it again! I am going to start doing that too and see if it works! There are a few things on my to do list that I would like out of!! I won't hold my breath though!! :)

I am glad you had a nice visit!!

pj - you are so right! it is some sort of avoidance technique they learned at husband class.

if i did a bad job at laundry, or at vacuuming, or at cooking, i would be the only one to suffer. daniel has a permanent filter on his vision for dust and wrinkles, and no food is bad food to him.

Men don't have the packing gene. They just don't.

Love the picture!

I agree with Princess 21 - it is aversion therapy. They are training us to NEVER ask for their help. But ohhhhh put their screw driver bits in the wrong place or throw things in the tool box too quickly and things could get nasty!!!
