Mommy's little helper?!?

My son is a real sweety. At the moment, he wants to help me all the time - and I have to find household tasks that a 18 mo kid can do...

So yesterday he helped me toss a salad, "sort" laundry and put laundry in the washing. I do my laundry on a dedicated laundry day in our basement. We have a huge front loading washer and dryer down there that all 24 appartments share, so I'm under pressure to finish my things in my 7 hour shift. My son comes down there with me and he loves wtching the dryer tumble - and he puts stuff in the wahing machine.

And yesterday, he added my mobile phone to the mix. The thing with front loading washing machines is that once they started, you can't open the door again...
My mobile is now very clean after spending an hour in a warm washing cycle... Luckily, the chip still wors and a friend gave me his old mobile, so its not that bad.

Just thought I'd share ;-)
