Works for Me Wednesday: Kitchen Organization
Tableware at Kid Height
Rocks in My Dryer hosts "Works for Me Wednesday" every week and I can't believe I have something to contribute. In the kitchen area of all things.
It's not at all profound and I'm sure most moms will read this and say "duh", but here goes: My kids can now completely set the table all by themselves. I've placed our cups, silverware and plates in the bottom cabinet so the kids can reach them.
Also, I keep a kid sized pitcher of water in the refrigerator so the kids can get water any time they want. ("What about your built in water dispenser?" you ask. Well, that hasn't worked for 2 years so we're making due with the pitcher.)
Like I said, it's not profound, but it is one baby step on the road to independence for my children.
Added bonus: it makes it easier for them to help unload the dishwasher (which just happens to be my least favorite chore). Does that count as character building?
