The Sniff Test

I've recently discovered that my 4-year-old has been putting his clothes back into their respective drawers when he changes.

And all this time I thought he was putting his clothes in the laudry hamper.

I came into his room this weekend while he was getting out of his pajamas and into his clothes for the day.

When he took off his pjs he opened the pajama drawer and put them back in there.

"What are you doing?" I asked.

"Putting them where they belong," he said.

Of course!

I then tried to explained that only the clean pajamas go into the drawer.

"Nope," he said. "They go in there."

As he told me this he opened his t-shirt drawer and pulled out the shirt he was wearing yesterday, then reached over to the underwear drawer and pulled out his Spongebob boxers I'm sure were wore yesterday and then he got out a pair of shorts.

So I guess it's all sniff testing from here on out.

My four year old daughter and I were playing together in the back yard. Later that day inside I kept smelling dog poo, but our shoes were off. Well (after using the smell test) we found that she had dog poo in her hair on the back of her head. Now we often epeat "Poo smell's gone!" in our best detergent pitch. mike morvay

I've got the same sort of thing going on here, however for different reason.
My four year old daughter changes clothes about 12 times a day, but puts things in the laundry basket after only wearing them for a few minutes. So I was doing laundry like crazy.
Now I sniff and put most of it back into her drawers.
