It is bathtime for Sophie tonight, but we all got home late so there are a bunch of household chores left undone.
Ben says, “Okay, who’s going to do the bath and who’s going to do the dishes? Which parent is doing which tonight?”
I say, “I’ll do the dishes and bring in the laundry from the line too.”
Sophie says, “I’ll do the dishes. Daddy can do the bath.”
Yes, my daughter has started procrastinating her bedtime by doing dishes. And she actually does do them.
I don’t know whether to be impressed or dismayed.
