What a big helper!

Mallory is such a big helper to me! She helps me sort laundry, she picks up toys, she stacks her books, she helps me load the dryer, she "helps push" the vacuum (really not helping, though she tries), and, with great enthusiasm, she helps me unload the dishwasher. I've been teaching her how to help me do different chores around the house and her favorite is the dishwasher. It's great because she unloads the top portion, stacks all the bowls and cups, and sorts the silverware. And I can also usually unload the remainder of the dishwasher, wipe down the counters, and finish any handwashing while she's at it...and she's not messing up anything else in the house!!! I'm glad she enjoys helping and I hope that her attitude will carry forward on into her older years...

What a sweet helping girl!

Good thing you have plenty of PLASTIC cups and bowls, especially with the granite counter.

Way to go, Mallory!!!! That's MY niece...
