You Can Always Tell When It's The Baby's Turn To Do The Dishes...
Hide the silverware (so that she doesn't realize you are beginning to unload the dishwasher).
Hand wash pots and pans in an attempt to delay the inevitable.
Take spices away from baby and explain that glass bottles aren't really a toy. Clean up one last speck of glass from the last time she thought playing with glass would be fun.
Wait until the baby's back is turned to wash out her favorite pot. Step around baby as she removes her second favorite pot from the cabinet.
Pull out the bottom rack of the dishwasher as quietly as possible. When baby comes running, explain that you weren't really emptying the dishwasher, just setting the table.
Hurry to grab each dish from the baby as she empties the bottom rack so that no more get broken today.
Tell baby not to bang the glass table with the ceramic dishes. Take baby off the dining room table and un-set the table.
Stop to change a diaper.
Hurry to grab each dish from the baby as she empties the top rack.
Try to put dirty dishes into the dishwasher faster than the baby can empty them, all while repeating, "These are dirty dishes! They stay 'in in in!'"
Give up until after the baby has gone to bed. Decide to fix her lunch for the next day instead.
Spend the entire time repeating, "This wa-wa (water) is for tomorrow. You already have wawa right there!" and "This moe-eesh (more please) is for tomorrow. You can eat that moe-eesh that's on your plate."
