I have to say that I appreciate my teenage daughter doing the dishes! I think we all can agree that it's good for kids to do chores, and it's important to praise and thank them when they follow through.

Emptying the dishwasher (she takes good care of my beloved Fiesta Ware)

I especially appreciate it when she makes art work while doing the dishes!
Or, Sculptures, rather?
Maybe this piece belongs in the MoMA?

Yep, modern art for sure.

Definitely a life made lovely when you kids does their chores--
and what a bonus--getting a nice piece of art work out of the deal!
(I actually did the same thing to let the dishes dry when I was her age, go figure!?)

Ha ha I was never allowed to do the dishes growing up and always wanted to! :) My dad was so serious about them and didn't trust anyone else to do them as well as him!
