Not really sure how "Yes, you can play with the water table while I wash the car" turned into having two helpers for washing but that is exactly what happened. I'm pretty sure this was the dirtiest they have ever been. Covered in suds, dirty wash water and all sorts of dirt from the pools in the driveway made by water from the hose...they got a good bath afterwards, believe me. In case you can't tell, they had a ton of fun and now every time I go to get the hose they beg to help. I hope they still feel this way about helping with cleaning and chores in a few years but I doubt we'll be that lucky.
