For me, this is a tip that will come in handy when they are a little bit older. I’m not sure when I will start, but I like the tip so much I wanted to pass it on to you. The idea is to keep everyone in the kitchen after dinner until it is completely clean and lunches are made for the next day. Many hands make lite work. If everyone is working together to get it done, then more time can be enjoyed together after the dishes are clean and the lunches are prepared for school the next day. Right now, I am satisfied having dad play with the kids while I get the dishes done. It’s a little bit of solace. I am excited for the day they’ll be a little bit more handy in the dish washing department.
