After a messier-than-usual peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I explained to M, our three year old, that E's hands needed to be washed, she took it upon herself to help him, just like Mommy sometimes needs to help her.
"Suds, suds, suds." She even dried his hands!
We use an adult two-step stool in our powder room for easy access to the children. It was not until today that learned two children fit on it though! If you have a short toddler, I highly recommend a bit sturdy stool! (It's great for M when I "need" help in the kitchen, too.)
If you are curious why M uses the words "suds" instead of "soap," it's because of a little book that we have that she enjoys called Rub-a-Dub Suds. It's a First Start Easy Reader. We like it because it has simple words that M has been able to say for quite a while. She loves it because it's all about Tammy, a pig, who loves suds during bath time. M can relate!
