Doing the dishes

This is one time I applaud my mother for her permissiveness. Usually, she is wanting to let Kenzie do something that isn't good for her (why not let her have a whole bag of sour gummy worms?).

I have always believed in encouraging children to help with things around the house. Kenzie got such a big thrill out of doing what Memaw does (we have a dishwasher, so Kenzie isn't allowed to help with that, and unless something is too big to put in there, we almost never do dishes by hand). I have to chuckle at this - Kenzie just wants to be a big girl and she was jumping up and down with joy because she did the dishes!

Way to go, Memaw! Now, can you teach her how to run the sweeper?
