Putting Away the Dishes



I've learned that it's just easier to let Easton help most of the time when I'm doing housework etc. He throws away garbage, sweeps the floor, picks up toys, carries laundry to the bedrooms, and helps unload the dishwasher. As you can see he's quite skilled at putting silverware away. Hey I'm impressed at least it all ends up in the drawer :) He thinks it's great fun to carry spoons to the drawer and hand me plastic plates and cups. I have to be quick and take out breakable stuff and then close the door before he can grab something. It's so cute though. He will pick up a cup, hand it to me and say, "thank you". He repeats this process with each thing he gives me. It actually has made putting dishes away a lot easier, and I don't have to wait until he's napping which is great. Of course I do have to go back and rearrange the silverware when he's done, but that's ok. He's getting to be such a big boy. I can't believe how much he has grown up!

That is one of my favorite pictures of him EVER! You need to email it to me or get me a copy... Grammy will want one too!
It's great that you're having him help! We should all start them early. It's good for them to learn to be helpful, to learn responsibility, to learn to do their part around the house... Good for you for teaching him that! And it is nice to have help too. =)
