Rafe turns 8 next month, and in anticipation has entered into negotiations for a raise in his allowance. After explaining that a raise would have to be precipitated by a corresponding raise in responsibilities, he hand-washed the dishes, pots & pans that wouldn’t fit in the dishwasher after supper. Prior to this his duties have included loading & unloading the dishwasher, so I guess this is a promotion of sorts. His sisters are certainly glad to see him moving up the ranks.
This was the scene when I came in the kitchen later.
I guess it’s good that he’s also learning to make work fun.
And to his future wife…you’re welcome! A husband that does the dishes is a good catch indeed
