Grammie's Helper


Charlie was washing her hands in the kitchen sink yesterday to get the marker ink off of them before going to school. She saw a few dishes that missed getting in the dishwasher and asked me if she could wash them. Silly girl - of course I said she could.



She had a good time squirting the dish detergent in the running water (cold) and washed what dishes she could find. When she was finished, very proud of herself, she checked her hands and was amazed that the ink was all off and her hands and fingernails were as clean as could be. She said "I was so interested in washing the dishes that I forgot all about washing the ink off my hands". She wants to help me again....hmmm....should I let her????

maybe...if you can convince her to warm up the water a bit

did she make a mess with the water, though? all over the counter? all over herself? the floor?
It doesn't look like it in the pictures, but that's what always happens when I let her do dishes!

Sara, she didn't get water on anything except the long sleeves of her dress. The front of it was fine and the sink/counter and floor area were dry as well.
