Am I asking him too much? :-)

Most of the time, DS is the only kid who helps the adults dissemble the playroom floor mats after a playgroup session - the teacher of the class loves him so much! At home, I just let him help me do the housework whenever the tasks are appropriate. Sometimes he is too willing and insistent to help that he must be involved! Belows are some of the photos taken over a year. No photo was being taken (because I had to make sure he was safe) when he removed the potatoes with a pair of tongs from the hot oven !

Wiping the floor @ 9.m.o....

"DS, you may stop. The floor is already clean."



Scooping uncooked rice out with a measuring cup (not shown here) and inspecting the bugs...
Switching on the cooker in a very hot and windowless kitchen...

"Cutting" the water melon...

Putting back the toys after playing...


Vacuum cleaning...

...and wet dusting...

Feeding our beloved cat...

Helping separate Pok Choy's leaves from stems.

Turning the salad spinner...

Peeling the pomelo...
...and the orange...

Peeling the hard-boiled egg...

(he was very serious)

...and more!

Only 24.5 months old, he loves doing housework and is proud of himself!

Just discovered your blog. Your son is just wonderful!

My 22 month old loves cleaning too, and has done for quite a while now. They love him at nursery also because he puts everything away at the end of a session without being asked. I heard somewhere that they enjoy having a sense of order. Plus, they like to imitate. It's not work to them, it's fun!
