We ran out of stuff to run the dishwasher so I had to do it the oldfashioned way...by hand. Eric loved it! He "helped" me by washing a set of plastic cups until there was enough water on the floor that I had to use a couple of towels to sop it up. He enjoyed pouring the water from cup to cup and splashing around. I enjoyed the fact that he did it without complaining. I know that the day is coming when washing dishes won't be fun anymore and he will use the Child Labor line like I used to.
