First you need to scrap off any remaining food on the plates...it helps if this is something you like anyway, like cupcakes!
Then you hang out at the sink area while the bean puts the dishes in the soapy water...be careful not to fall in, or you will get a wash too! You also need to be mindful of the kitchen angel on the counter, as she is very fragile, and will break if you knock her to the floor. Mom says she won't be able to glue her again if we knock her off! This can't be good luck to have an angel keep losing her head! LOL
It's important to smile at the beans and offer encouragement while they work. They like to be appreciated too.
When you are done, beg for canned food so you can create some more dirty dishes to wash...this keeps the bean busy, and then she will enjoy her snuggle time with you on the couch later all the more.
