For five times on four consecutive days, our almost 2-year-old son has helped me set the table.
We start with the place mats, then we move on to the plates, spoons and fork. I give them piece by piece while saying whose it is. Papa’s plate, Mama’s plate, LC’s plate, Mama’s spoon, LC’s spoon…
It’s been a mess and a stress when he usually “helps” me but in this case, he’s a little helper in the truest sense of it. A real proud mama here! 🙂
These are one of the things I am grateful for not having a housemaid around. Kids learn to do chores and be responsible. 🙂
And oh! Yes, the plates are the real deal. They are light-weight (Corelle – lightest plates I know), hence they’re very easy for LC to carry around.
