What's that one job that you always get little helpers helping you with. Even when you dont ask them for that "help"

Faith loves helping with laundry and trash. She walks me to the garbage chute and pushes the door closed when we take out the trash, but she has a hissy if i go without her. Same with laundry. She MUST be allowed to come (or feel her wrath) and she must be allowed to hold the laundry room keys and close all of the washer/dryer doors lol. I always tell her she's a great helper altho it takes me 2x as long to do both tasks :p

She'll also pull out her toy vaccuum when I vaccuum and vacuum along side me. She also tries to sweep the floor with the big broom on her own, but usually ends of spilling the cat food and water instead. At that point I thank her for her help, but she can be done helping now. haha!

Zoe helps with 99%of my tasks. Baking and cooking is her favs. She holds my hand while i cut up veggies with the sharp knife. She can push a chair accross to the counter in the blink of an eye lol

dd loves to vacuum and dust and even has her own cleaning cart to help out :) Vacuuming is always the hard one because its a central vac unit and she wants to use the same one I do and not her little dirt devil.

She always helps to wipe down the table - this I like.
Sweeping with her around is a NIGHTMARE - she always just ends up spreading around my piles of HUSKY fur and it all goes back in the air and I have to wait for it all to settle again.

Lately she has really been trying to help with dishes - which wouldn't be a problem if they weren't ALL glass or ceramic & kept way too high for her.

Dishes - Accepting their "help" usually involved putting towels on the floor and stripping them down to their shorts since they tend to pour water everywhere.
