Who says you have to wait to get the kids to help around the house. Kyler at 14 months old kyler does dishes with Dathen. It is dathens job to put forks and spoons in the dishwasher. While Kyler gets in there just like a dirty shirt. He will even look around the house for sippy cups that need to go in the dishwasher too. I don't know how much of this is wanting to be like big brother and how much is wanting to help out, but I don't care! I am just happy he helps. He also takes things to the garbage if you tell him to or not. He knows kellenx goes in the garbage, he knows wrapes go in the garbage but he does not put things there just to put them there, so we don't really check it befoere we take it out. I am sure this will change and one day we will have to put a lock on that cubered, but for now its nice to have the help.
So who needs to wait till they can reach the sink to get them doing dishes.
