I usually try to unload and load the dishwasher while my youngest is sleeping or strapped into his booster seat. His helpfulness is appreciated,but it's help that I can do without. Today, he took a different approach. He took each piece of flatware out of the basket and handed them to my one by one to be placed in the drawer. The spoon in his left hand never made it to the drawer. It may have taken me three times as long as normal, but I want to instill in my boys that everyone in the house helps out with daily chores.
