"His Job"

When my Mom was here she gave me the great idea of having Micah help me empty the silverware from the dishwasher. I knew at some point he'd be ready to help, but I wasn't sure when exactly that would be. Well, I decided to give it a try and put Micah to the test. Not only can he sort the silverware perfectly, but he is pretty much obsessed with doing so, and has claimed it "his job". For those of you that know me, I like to get things done fast, so it was rather difficult sitting back and watching him turn the knives into swords for 10 minutes or playing the game of "Which spoon/fork is bigger?" with every single one-when he clearly knew the answer. However, I know chores are so important and serve as a great learning process. He even got mad at me, tears involved, for doing "his job" the other day. I guess the best part is that he has no idea it is a "chore" least yet ;)

Hilarious! I can only imagine Micah's reaction when you did "his job" for him. Haha. Can you send him my way? I'd love some help in my kitchen :)
