When I was but a wee child I remember wanting to have chores so badly. I remember watching my eldest sister pre wash dishes and load them into the dishwasher. Oh I so badly wanted to do the dishes. This memory came flooding back to me this morning as Emerson begged me to wash the bowl and spoon we just used to make Aunt Gee's birthday cake. I was hit with this memory and obliged her request. I scooted the chair over to the sink and helped her up. I thought I was creating a precious memory that will hopefully be etched in her mind too. It was a real Hallmark moment until she continuously kept turning the water up full blast and soaking everything in a 2 mile radius. And then screetched at me as I continually turned it down. This went on for a good 10 minutes. My ideas are so good at the time. I wonder if Joel will notice Emerson's 'help' in the next water bill?

  1. LOL I used to mimic grocery checkers running food along the scanner as I whipped dishes across the counter to the dishwasher. And Kaitlynn is always wanting to help with the dishes too. What's up with the internal need to clean that women have!?? And why didn't men get it!???? :)
