The dishwasher helper

I think I've mentioned this in a previous Month in Review post, but the click of the dishwasher opening is a sure-fire way to summon Carolyn into the kitchen and keep her occupied for at least a few minutes.

She loves helping to both empty and load the dishwasher, and has on occasion attempted to open it herself, saying "help me" (which she has derived from me saying "will you help me load the dishwasher?").

When we're emptying the dishwasher, she will hand me each piece of silverware one-by-one, saying "Ek ku" (i.e. "thank you") every time she lifts one up to me to put in the drawer. She also likes helping to sweep the floor and stir anything that's being cooked on the stove-top. Now if I can just teach her how to do laundry, I'll have all my bases covered.

Kids love the dishwasher. I am curious to know what age this suddenly stops at. Charlotte is still a fan. My guess is five.

As long as she continues to actually assist and not hinder, I hope it lasts until she goes to college. She actually puts tupperware away for me by herself!
