for some reason the last few days the kids have been wanting to do the dishes. yes, that's right! they want to do the dishes. being the super mom i am i would never deprive them of this privilege. they actually have been doing a good job. dahlia and mason take turns washing and rinsing and connor cleans the counters with a sponge. i love this. of course i know this is only a passing interest. there is no way that i am lucky enough to have this hold their attention for more than a couple of evenings. but for now i am enjoying any help i can get.
