What kind of mother would I be if I didn't take advantage of the fact that my son loves playing in warm, soapy water by having him help wash dishes? ;) This time, when Baby Bear asked to play with bubbles in his sensory bin, I threw in a handful of his plastic dishes, a dish rag, and a scrub brush, too! I showed him how to wash the plates and cups. He showed me how much more fun it was to pour soapy water from one cup to another over and over and over again than to wash them. Oh, well, at least I tried!
