Growing up my household task or rather my preferred task has always been doing the dishes as opposed to cooking which my Mom does with a lot of flare. When I was 8 years old my Mom and I agreed that whenever school was out and I found her in the kitchen cooking for us, I would be her assistance and help out while she cooks by cleaning up the sink of the used utensils and pans. In a way it was a form of bonding for us. Now I find washing the dishes soothing, there is something about seeing dishes getting squeaky clean after being filled with great dishes.
Now that I am a Mom myself, I started getting my kids to help out in the kitchen thru washing dishes at an early age, like what my mom did to me. They do complain off and on because like me their hands get super dry and my daughter would finds herself with peeling hands. Ay karamba! Teen years are such a sensitive time for them I don’t want my daughter ending up “unloved” because she did not creamy soft hands.
It is a good thing I was giving samples of Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid to try out.
