Mommy's Helper

Noah loves helping with chores around the house. His absolute favorite chores are doing laundry and unloading the dishwasher.
We push a chair up to the washing machine so Noah can watch the water come in and the bubbles form. He helps me load the washer, and he isn't satisfied until it's full to the brim! He likes to count down until the washer starts swishing, so it can get very exciting once the machine starts. He likes to watch the swishing as long as he can, and if we're still upstairs, he likes to check in on the rinse cycle too. Noah has made up his own sign for washing machine - he circles his hand around and around while he makes a "wrrr wrr" sound, just like the sound the washing machine makes. He also likes to help put clothes in the dryer, but it isn't nearly as satisfying as helping with the washing machine.
We pull up a chair to the silverware drawer, and Noah does a great job of unloading the clean silverware. He does a pretty good job of getting everything in the right slot. After he unloads it though, he usually takes all the silverware out of the drawer and puts it back into the dishwasher basket.
