2 Year Old Chores

Yup, our two year old does chores, and has since before she actually turned two. All of the rest of our kids do chores every night, so she figured that she'd jump right in on those too. Since she was so willing, we gave her age appropriate chores - picking up her trains and unloading the dishwasher. Yes, you read that correctly - Lucy unloads the dishwasher, and does a pretty decent job of it too. Recently though she's started trying to LOAD the dishwasher. Now, when you are just below counter height, can't reach the sink, and still aren't 100% sure which is the trash and which is the sink, maybe loading the dishwasher isn't a good chore for you. But Lucy did it anyway. I came around the corner and this is what I found:
Lucy couldn't find any actual dirty dishes, so she got some plates and bowls from the cabinet and loaded those in the dishwasher, along with a wrapper from a bar, which was clearly dirty. Two year olds are entertaining.
