A while back, I decided not to fill up my dishwasher, but instead have the children help me wash up our dishes.
It was such a sweet time. I realized that while loading the dishwasher might be convienient, it wasn’t as pleasant a time as was washing dishes with my girls.
We talked, we laughed, we got the job done… with excellence. It was a time where you can’t help but converse while standing at the sink together.
It was lovely.
And you know what???
The dishwasher has remained empty since…
