Maddy really enjoys helping out with "chores" around the house. This includes cleaning up, vacuuming, putting laundry in the washer/dryer, and emptying the dishwasher. She runs straight into the kitchen if she even suspects that the dishwasher door is open. You have to watch her or she'll climb up on the door to reach the things on the top shelf. Usually she's in charge of the utensil bin and that works pretty well.
