I'm sure that there's some sort of law against this. I'm just positive of the fact... I just can't seem to think of what it is exactly... hmmmm... I just can't seem to put my finger on it. Oh well! Ah... The Child Labor Law. But does that still apply if the child ASKS to do it? Alli loves to "help" me around the house, and even better than the help... I don't have to pay her! WAHOO! ;)
Really though, Alli is such a big helper. Tonight she wanted to help me with the dishes. This is how she went about asking:
"Mommy. Guess what?"
"What's that Al?"
"I love to wash the dishes. It's my favorite!"
"Really? Is that so?"
"Yes. It really is. I have my apron on. I'm such a good helper."
She cracks me up. So, after that I just had to let her "help" me with the dishes. I let her rinse the dishes before they went into the dishwasher, and then I let her sort the eating utensils into their little holder-thingy in the dishwasher. And, you know what!? She really was "such a good helper!"
