Anna is my new helper when it's time to unload the dishwasher. She started showing an interest in helping me several weeks ago. I was putting the silverware away and she started bringing spoons over to me one at a time. Ever since then when it's time to unload I always ask if she wants to help and get the huge head nod and smile yes! I quickly grab the clean knives and forks and leave the spoons for her to help with. She gets a little side-tracked sometimes when she finds one of her own spoons so I usually have the bottom emptied before she ever finsihes with her spoons. It's been fun having her so interested in helping!
