Mama's Little Helper

Yesterday afternoon I was doing the dishes after lunch and Liam was bored of playing with pots and pans. I was nearly finished so I drained the water, filled the sink again, half way, and pulled a chair up so Liam could "help." He thought this was the greatest thing ever! I gave him a few plastic cups and bowls to "wash" and he had a grand old time. And also made a grand old mess. Oh well, at least it was a clean mess, if you know what I mean!

  1. You and your sister loved to "wash the dishes" too!! It was a great way to keep you busy for hours at a time. When you were finished, I mopped the floor. Happy kids and a clean floor! Win win situation! So glad Liam want's to be your little helper!

  2. I remember you saying that before which is what gave me the idea! I'd much rather have a soapy water mess than a dirt mess any day! I might as well have mopped the floor after that - next time I will!
