In an attempt to get all the dishes done and done well, I collected Cakes's dishes from her kitchen and set them up on a towel with a big tub of warm soapy water (being a cold winters morning and knowing she would get soaked I left her in her pyjamas until she was finished). Cakes also requested she wear her apron she got from her Aunty Louise while she washed the dishes, I do not wear aprons so I was pleased she knows this item is for wearing in the kitchen. This was a huge success (apart from the massive puddle on the floor and Cakes wet from head to toe). I was able to get all the dishes clean and play washing the dishes with Cakes for sometime. This activity captured her attention for about an hour, needless to say her toys (and the cat) will be eating off of the cleanest dishes around. When she had finished she insisted on dishes drying on the bench with the real dishes.
