At least he helped out!

I asked my 7 year old son to help with cleaning up after dinner last night. He happily agreed and willingly got up and started clearing the table. I pushed my luck a little and then told him to put away the dishes as well. Again, he cheerfully kept on plugging away getting things done in the kitchen while my wife and I chatted to our guests who were seated with us for dinner.

Some time after dinner and doing a few other things around the house, my wife opened up the cupboard under the sink to get out a plate for some desert. And guess what she found…

… a neatly stacked set of dishes, with a bit of left over crumbed fish on a plate on the stack of small plates. My son did a great job and I will not fault him for doing all the work, I am just thankful we found the fish straight away and not some time later.

    Wow, that could have been really smelly if you hadn’t found it straight away! Bless him for helping though. Maybe you should check your other cupboards as well to see what else you can find!
