Does anyone else find it very sweet...

that their toddler or children want to help with the daily cleaning tasks as well as the laundry. My 2 yo has been very involved and wanting to be helpful since she was 18 mos old. I give her her very own rag to clean with (no cleaning chemicals) and she cleans the floors and the walls, she helps put laundry into the baskets and then into the washer and dryer and helps me fold and put away. I love this stage and hope that it lasts for quite some time
