Toddler Chore: Sorting Silverware

Sorting silverware into the silverware drawer is M's latest contribution to work around the house. She, of course, is tickled to be involved in the process of putting dishes away.

The only problem is, when I teach M a new skill she often wants to do it every time it needs doing. So unfortunately, the times when I'm busiest, and just need to do the tasks myself also become the times I have a frustrated, unhappy toddler on my hands. Do any of you struggle with this problem? Any suggestions?

Distraction. That's all that works for me. I just try to do it when she's not looking!
