Doing Dishes

There's nothing quite as delicious as experiencing the prosaic duties of living through a child's eyes of novelty and wonder. A warm sinkful of lavender scented suds that magically dissolve the dinner scraps off each plate, unlimited use of scrubbing tools, and the satisfaction of affecting change (even if only in a handful of dishes): from that vantage point, I'd beg to do dishes as well! A six-year old's helping hands can sometimes delay, but you couldn't ask for more enthusiasm or perspective on routine.
