Kids helping out

The kids have all sorts of chores that they're expected to do around the house. They scrub bathrooms, vacuum, Windex mirrors and windows, take out trash, wipe down counters and tables, and unload and load the dishwasher...not usually very willingly, but they do it nonetheless since it is expected of them. (Don't even ask me why my house is still always such a mess)!

So I made an unexpected discovery today amidst their helping...although they unload and load the dishwasher every day, apparently I've never asked them to actually start the dishwasher before. First Spencer started it without adding any soap. When I reminded him of this minor detail, he innocently exclaimed, "Oh, I forgot."

Later on this is what I found left out on the counter.

Oh well! I guess there's always duct tape...and at least he was helping!

Hilarious. Did he use the right amount of soap?

I remember doing that exact same thing and I have survived to be 30 -- so I think Spence will be fine.

You are such a good mom teaching them to help around the house. Aren't boys so much fun!!!

That's so funny! I'm just glad the kiddos were helping their poor overworked mom! (o:
