Don't Leave the Kitchen Yet

Mealtime was nutty, not to mention the prep time you spent in the kitchen. But if you’re tempted to leave the mess behind “for later,” resist the urge. It never takes as much time as you think to get the kitchen, if not spotless, at least acceptable. And guaranteed you’ll be more tired later than you are now. Instead, take a few minutes at the end of the meal to toss the dishes in the dishwasher, store leftovers, and sweep up the worst of the crumbs. Returning to a clean kitchen later is always a relief! Plus, it's a great opportunity to solidify your little one's understanding of different kitchen and dining table items as you put them away.
