Start him young...

When i was younger my mom knew as soon as we could reach the kitchen sink we were washing dishes, and as soon as we could see the knobs on the washing machine it was time to learn how to do laundry!

Proverbs 22:6
"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

I get it! SO the other night i was washing dishes and the Bug came in the kitchen whining about something so we got a stool and i put him to work!   I washed a bowl and he rinsed it.  Granted it took him about 10 minutes to "rinse" (fill it up play in water and fill it up three times to play and dumb water in the sink) a bowl he did it.  and then he put it off on the side. 

He was so proud of him self when he was done.  He signed all done, and then got off the stool and went to play.  I was happy and yet i couldn't stop laughing, he rinsed ONE bowl and said ummm ok thats enough.  I can tell this is gonna be a life long journey of fighting to get chores done...
