Today Thomas helped me put away dishes.
He often gets in my dishwasher and plays with the silverware and it got me thinking. The next time I did dishes I set up a stepping stool next to the silverware drawer. After showing him what to do he got eagerly to work. Taking one piece of silverware from the dishwasher at a time he would step up on the stool and place it in the drawer.
I had to fix the drawer afterwards but I didn't mind. I was able to finish putting away dishes from the top part of the dishwasher by the time he finished. And when I started putting away the plates he insisted on helping. So, one by one he would pull out plates and I would put them away. Next the pans and any other things on the bottom of the dishwasher. Needless to say, we both had fun!
