When homework is a gift

Well, today's kindergarten homework sure was a welcome surprise. Thanks, awesome Kindergarten team teachers!
It said "help mom sort the laundry or..." Something else. I didn't read the rest. 
Not important.
Don't get caught up on the fact that it said "help mom." Obviously our child could help "dad" or a sibling or a grandparent or another caregiver. 
But, I'm just thanking these wonderful teachers for this unexpected gift. 
Me, supervising my five year old sorting laundry was truly a gift today. 

He's happy and I'm happy. 
We took our instructions a little further and we started a load of "darks" together. Now he's watching the machine. I think we will be here for a while. 

Don't you just love it when we receive the gift of time?
Slow down.
Do a load of laundry with your child.
You might find, like I did, that it's actually pretty relaxing and fun when you do it together.
