Brag away - that is so cute and wonderful! My son is the same way and I treasure it. I credit his Montessori daycare, I otherwise would have had no idea that a toddler could empty the dishwasher without breaking everything. Hope it lasts and can't wait till he can mow the lawn!
I was just thinking the same thing -- Montessori at work! We're VERY Montessori inspired here with DD.
Here's a couple blog posts I wrote about her and 'helpfulness' and 'housework'.
Like JessieBird, it would never have occurred to me that a 2yo (and younger) can help with cooking or so many other things. I think in general, we're way too "helpful" to our littlest ones -- with the best of intentions of course, but we get in the way of their natural development because we think they must be molly-coddled with 'safe' plastic dishes and they're "too young" to do so many things, when actually they're just fine...
