Do you hate doing the dishes? I know I'm not the only one, however, after hand-washing dishes during the 7 days I was in Africa that I am VERY thankful for my dishwasher. I have to say that even with the convenience of the dishwasher, loading and unloading it is still one of my least favorite chores.
Of course, this little man is always willing to "help."
When loading your dishwasher, separate your utensils by like items. For example- all the forks together, all the knives, together, all the kiddie silverware together...I think you get the idea. This is something I saw my mother-in-law do once and I know it's not mind-blowing and maybe everyone else in the world was already doing this, but what time it saves when you go to put them all away. It also makes it easier for the kids to help out.
Have a great one!
