Adam, Champion Dish Stacker of the World

It's usually pretty difficult to get some hubby help when it comes to cleaning the house. But on occasion, he chips in and washes dishes or cleans the living room. He may do things a little different than I would, but I'm not complaining about having the help! For instance, when he washes dishes he leaves the water running the whole time, puts soap on every dish, doesn't empty the dish drainer first and gets water everywhere. That may not be my way of doing things, but my man sure does know how to stack the dish drainer! I came into the kitchen one night after Adam had been helping and I had to laugh at what I found. The dishes looked quite haphazardly stacked, but nothing was falling out. He is the champion, I must say. I'll take his help any day.

Lol! This is funny! We are all different, aren't we? It's nice that he helps.
I broke a dish doing the stacking thing when you guys were little and I was babysitting. I wonder if your parents remember that.

By the way, don't let him see this blog,it may be the last time he does the dishes.

That is some of the best dish stacking that I have ever seen!

WOW That is an amazing display.How did it work when you had to put them away?Did everything stay in place or did stuff fall all over?

Bethany said...

No, they didn't fall everywhere! Which is why I said he is the "champion stacker". Those dishes sure do look precarious though, don't they?

My wife can stack them all the way to the ceiling. I always know when she did the dishes, it forces me to put them away in the morning, or I wont eat. rotfl Lol :) bloggers are weird.

What I noticed right away, wasn't how they were stacked by that I have that Apple pattern pottery dishes. I don't have the whole set, just two large plates that I put in my plate hangers above the fireplace when I'm decorating for Summer.

I've never lived in a house that has a dishwasher ~~ so I relate to stacked dishes.

How funny that we have the same dishes Wanda! I bought my set when the local Ames was going out of business. Cheap-cheap!

I found your blog searching for a "Dish Stacker"! Who knew I would find the Champion of them all! LOL

I have learned that "Housework done 'wrong' still blesses the family!" Sometimes I have to remind myself that, although my way is probably best, anybody else's way means that I've been helped! :o)

God is so good to give us what we need to learn more about Him and ourselves!

BTW, your little boy is absolutely adorable. Everything in our house is pink; We have 3 girls...

I pray that your DH demonstrates his prowess and skill at the kitchen sink frequently! :o)
