My kitchen is tiny, it's packed full of stuff, as a consequence it has a stairgate on the door and is deemed toddler-unfriendly at present. Unfortunately that means that there are certain things that I can't do with Kit (although we move a lot of stuff to the bathroom sink or just do food related things on his table). One of those things is teaching him to do the washing up. And he is so keen to wash up too! Whenever we go to my parents he practically begs to do the washing-up. Washing-up being mens work I tend to step aside to allow Kit some quality Grandad time (I don't think Grandad considers it quality time as he doesn't enjoy the amount of water that leaves the sink!). I wonder how long it will be before Kit can (happily of course) do all the washing up in our house!
I fully expect that by the time Kit's enthusiasm could be considered useful he will share my hatred towards the task, but I can dream!
