A dinner helper in our house is someone who helps prepare the dinner. In our house his is usually my oldest. I can say milk and he will get it quickly. Or I need a meauring cup and he’s got it. If I’m done using a utencil he knows to wash it. We make a great team and I get to teach him as we go. He usually listens really well and follow directions. (most of the time…lol) He is an awesome kid.
