What does "sanitary" mean anyway?
Genna LOVES the dishwasher. The moment that she hears us open it, she is there, ready to "help." She will dutifully stand there and hand us everything within her reach, so we can put it away. If we don't take whatever she's holding withing 1.7 seconds, she reminds us that she is helping by letting out our favorite new sound: whine. If only I had recorded it...but I'm sure you can imagine.
Today, she handed me each piece of silverware (well, actually stainless steel, but whatever). I cannot guarantee that her hands were "clean." Does this mean my dishes are "dirty?" Should I "sanitize" them again?
(Emily, I thought of you as this was happening...do you let Frank "help" with "clean" dishes?)
