When we're helping we're happy

This morning Rachel and Meme teamed up to empty the dishwasher. Miriam was taking the silverware out one piece at a time and handing them to Rachel, who would put them in the drawer. It was so cute to watch them working together so nicely.


I'm not sure what Miriam's main motive was, though, because she seemed rather intent on closing the bottom rack. Rachel kept having to pull it back out and demand that Miriam hand her more silverware. Miriam would then obediently hand Rachel another piece or two of silverware before trying to close the bottom rack again.

It might be because on Friday she discovered that the door of the dishwasher makes a mighty fine platform. *sigh* This girl will climb on anything. 

But at least she's helping with the housework...


  1. My girls do this too and it is so cute to watch. Grace is tall enough to see into the drawer so everything gets in the right place, and Sadie just is happy to be involved.

  2. Tommy loves to help me empty the dishwasher - do you think I could borrow Rachel so I don't have to wait so long for him to hand me the next spoon? :)
