Is it me or is an open dishwasher a magnet for toddlers? As soon as the dishwasher opens, Eden (who is 1 year old) makes a bee line to the dishwasher. She begins with the knives and moves onto the plates. It is especially difficult to defend against her tiny hands when we are loading the dishwasher because our hands are covered in debris. We are left to using one leg but often have to call for back-up if she is especially sneaky.
