Compromise. Noah's not allowed in the kitchen (for one thing he goes straight to touch anything that's a "no" so its just easier if the kitchen as a whole is a "no!") BUT he loves to touch the fridge for some reason. So he found the perfect solution: feet are out, but I can still touch it! :)
Its pretty hard to get chores done around the house with a crawler. But washing windows is one that is pretty easy cause he LOVES to watch the swish of the cloth against the window and all the fun spray stuff drip down on the windows.
