I probably should have stopped them from swinging their 1 year old sister around in a laundry basket, but they were having so much fun. And they weren’t swinging her very high. She was really only a few inches off the ground, so I figured she wouldn’t be hurt if they dropped her.
Luckily, this time my leniency paid off and no one was hurt. Annoyed when I eventually told them it was time to put her down? Yes. Hurt? No.
This gets me thinking, though, if they can manage to carry their 20 pound sister around in a laundry basket, surely they can carry a laundry basket full of clean clothes back to their room to put them away. Right?
