Do they dress themselves?
Caeden will dress himself every morning and again for bedtime, usually picking out his own clothes too, I only double check to be sure he matches when I know we are going out or have people coming over
Can they do zippers?
I think he could if he applied himself, but usually he just doesn't... his pants hardly ever get unzipped when he pulls them down so he doesn't have to deal with that, and his coat gets taken off when he gets in his carseat so we rarely zip that.
He just figured out the button snaps on pants, and if he consentrates hard he can do regular buttons too
Put on their own coat?
Yes, He's been doing this for awhile, though I usually help him because I have to get it down from the hanger for him anyway.
Can they tie their own shoes?
No, but he is working on it. while I tie them I usually say what I'm doing, he can get the first part on his own but the bow still has him confused
Do they brush their own teeth?
Caeden brushes by himself in the morning as part of his 'chores' but at bedtime I usually do a touch up after he is finished doing it on his own.
Do they wash themselves in the bath tub?
he has been washing his body since he was old enough to find all his different body parts, but only just started helping with washing his hair. I get it wet and pour the soap for him and he rubs it in, then I rinse it out.
Other things he can do include making his own bed, and doing a really good job of it (minus pulling up the sheet which he always forgets), and taking care of his dishes after every meal.
