To see what all he can do--at 21 months, mind you--amazes me! The broom, Swiffer, and feather duster cannot come out of storage without Mason insisting on cleaning the floors or dusting the furniture himself. If he spills a few drops of his milk, I hand him the rag and he wipes it up. Without being asked, he carries the empty reusable bags to the front door and lays them there (to be placed back in the car) as I unload the groceries--he knows that's his job. In the garden, I taught him how to pick peas and pull weeds. As I scoop buckets of water from his swimming pool to water the garden, he mimics me, filling up his little watering can and making trip after trip to water my herbs.
