Her First Chore

Caroline has her first official household chore - and she's really good at it. Of course we ask her to clean up her toys and certain other little things like that, but it's not always a regular thing. Well, just this week I found a new task for her to do and it's a great bonus b/c it's a learning activity, it keeps her busy while we do a household task, AND it actually accomplishes something.

What is it? Caroline unloads the silverware basket from the dishwasher. And she does it amazingly well. She sorts the spoons, forks, butter knives, and baby spoons so well - I just can't get over it. And she's well on her way to emptying the entire thing. She also likes to help me clean toilets, but she's not that good at that yet. She just likes to swirl the water around with the brush and doesn't actually get much dirt off. But it's a start! I can't wait until the powder room becomes her responsibility!
