While my 13 year old daughter was reorganizing her room a few weeks ago, she asked for a hamper so she and her younger sister could start doing their own laundry. I should have been doing the happy dance, right? Instead, I found myself second-guessing her motives and my worth as a mom.
Was she asking because I could not keep up with all the laundry? Had I failed in yet another area of mothering and homemaking?
