That’s What Washers Are For

So the boy and the little one are twelve years apart.  When the boy was small, he had a bad habit of cleaning his hands on his clothes.  As I’m sure most kids do.  Haha.  I would always scold him about doing that and would hand him a napkin.  It was really hard to break him out of that habit.  I couldn’t tell you how much money was lost on stained clothes.  Every time I would catch him wiping his hands on his clothes, I would say, “That’s what napkins are for”.  Well, being the smart alec that he is, his response was always, “Well, isn’t that what washers are for”?  That was just a battle that was never going to end.  Well, cue the little one.  She has the same bad habit.  (Shocker) I tell her over and over to use a napkin.  That’s why they were invented.  She is about 84% more stubborn than the boy when he was her age.  So, when dealing with her, it really is a war.  I could tell her till I’m blue in the face to use a napkin and she will use it for the first wiping and then it’s right back to her clothes.  I tell her, that’s why all your clothes are ruined.  Her response is, “Well, isn’t that what washers are for”?  Wow!!  Why didn’t I think of that.  What a simple method.  All these years, I could have avoided the battle of the hand wiping.  I swear, the little one is the boy all over again.  Ugh!!!   I can’t believe these two completely different people, are exactly the same.  Haha.  Can’t wait to do it all over again with a girl version of the boy.  NOT!!!!!
