I realised that the washing machine had been finished for a few minutes, so I went to get Elijah's sheets and towels out of the machine to hang up on the line. Imagine my surprise to see Elijah had heard the machine finish, got an empty basket, opened the machine and put all of the washing in the basket, all without being asked.
This is after he insisted the other day that he wash the dishes all by himself.
This boy truly wants to help. I think he also wants to be an adult!
