Jen--I wouldn't say you are slacking at all. But a 2.5 year old is capable of putting (non breakable) dishes away, helping sort laundry, etc. My 2 year old gets to put away the tupperware, and he "helps" me with the laundry (his "help" is often more work for me but I let him because it's a good habit to encourage). And he loves to push our carpet sweeper (non-motorized) around.
