I thought of this as I was letting Julio help me load the dryer.
This was severely hampering my progress on the excavation of Laundry Mountain. But, as tedious as it can be, toddler work leads to real work. I'm convinced that the more I let him enjoy it now, the more he'll want to do it later.
Besides, I told Diego to leave his lunch plate on the table yesterday because the dishwasher was clean. When I came back from getting his little brothers dressed, he had emptied the dishwasher and loaded it with all of the dirty dishes.
I'm not sure who was prouder, him or me.
