Have we officially met?

Hi! I'm Jake. I am not a big fan of pants.

I loooooooooooooooove to help my mommy in the kitchen. One of my Very Favorite Things is to help her load the dishwasher.

Even though I am only 17 months old, I load the dishwasher like I'm 35. Or, at least like I'm a 35-year-old man. Which is to say that I try really hard, buy I don't pre-rinse and I don't put everything exactly where Mommy would put it if she were doing it The Right Way. Her Way.

But Mommy is very patient with me, even though I Am Male. She takes all the sharp knives out before I start to help.


As a matter of fact, on THIS day Mommy was looking for some of the dishes after I got finished helping her, and she looked in all the cabinets and all over the floor. It wasn't until she finally opened up the child-proofed cabinet under the kitchen sink to get the dishwashing liquid out that she found out where I'd put them.

As it turned out, I had opened the little drawer under the sink and thrown them in while she was busy nesting her Tupperware or something. I am crafty like that. You have to watch me every second.

And now, here's a little video of me helping. Tah-dah!

How cute!!! I love when babies run around without pants. They just seem more comfortable that way!

Do you think he'd like to help me? The dishwasher is my least favorite thing to do around here....

Ryan Leigh, It takes me twice as long when he "helps," but it's his favorite thing EVAH. When I'm trying to cook or clean in the kitchen, if I open the dishwasher and let him help, he is happy for at least 30 minutes. Amazing! But all of our boys have been that way about the dishwasher. I don't know what it is about that appliance!

So cute, my almost 13 month old loves to help too. I need to have him help when we are putting the clean ones away instead of putting the dirty ones in.
