[00:00:09.726]Today I'm going to help my parents by doing the laundry.
[00:00:14.798]My favorite part, matching the socks.
[00:00:18.710]You take all the socks that have come out of the laundry
[00:00:24.150]and you find two that have the same design,
[00:00:28.940]like these two have butterflies.
[00:00:34.110]And you fold them together like this,
[00:00:37.410]like a matching game.
[00:00:39.230]And these are my socks, so I'll put 'em right here.
[00:00:42.530]Then, I take this pink and white one,
[00:00:45.540]and this pink and white one,
[00:00:47.170]and I do the same thing that I did,
[00:00:48.810]except these are my mom's socks,
[00:00:50.160]so I'll put them on this side of the basket.
[00:00:53.520]These socks, with my dog on them,
[00:00:57.181]oh, here they are.
[00:00:59.830]You fold them together again,
[00:01:02.390]and some of them have doughnut.
[00:01:04.570]Some of them have cupcakes.
[00:01:06.219]Some have stripes,
[00:01:08.281]and cupcakes again, so I'll fold those together.
[00:01:13.050]Then this one, which looks like that one.
[00:01:16.050]I will find the match.
[00:01:18.850]Oh, this one doesn't have a match.
[00:01:22.960]I have a place for them,
[00:01:25.650]because they end up coming out somewhere,
[00:01:29.530]because I put them both in the wash.
[00:01:31.460]Well, some of them are inside out.
[00:01:35.150]So what you need to do is you take your hand
[00:01:37.370]and put it all the way through the sock.
[00:01:39.730]Take the end and pull it all the way through again,
[00:01:43.120]and then it turns around.
[00:01:45.520]And this one looks like it's a lonely sock too,
[00:01:50.490]so I'll put it in the lonely box with the other one.
[00:01:55.559]But these ones are my mom's.
[00:02:00.480]These cats, which are long socks,
[00:02:03.860]I'll put with mine, 'cause they're mine.
[00:02:07.970]And this one
[00:02:10.670]is inside out, so I do what I did with the other one,
[00:02:13.310]and I pull it all the way through.
[00:02:19.000]And where is its match?
[00:02:21.100]It did not have one, so I'll put it in the lonely box,
[00:02:23.770]which is not very lonely anymore.
[00:03:13.820]Now that I'm done, I'm gonna put these away.
[00:03:16.430]Have a beautiful day!
