Big Sis came home from preschool today with a bag over her head. Not to worry faithful readers...nothing was amiss. They had used good old brown grocery bags and decorated them to make "robot" hats. I thought it was a great idea.
I love the old..."reduce, reuse, recycle" thing. I do not consider myself an environmentalist - too many negative connotations, but I consider myself environmentally aware. I try to use cleaning products that are truly biodegradable, made from natural ingredients and do not employ the use of chemicals to do their work (don't get me wrong...you have to keep the chemicals because sometimes...it's the only thing that's going to work). I separate my trash into recyclables and non-recyclables - most weeks, my recycle barrel is more full than the trash barrel. I keep the lights off unless completely necessary. I take my own reusable bags to the grocery store. I use cotton cloths, instead of paper towels, to wash off Baby Boys face after meals. So...you get the picture. I'm not a fanatic, but I do try to do what I can to live in a more eco-friendly manner.
So...this brings me to Question #1 - How do you feel about environmental issues? What are your thoughts?
Now for the next issue:
Big Sis told me a little story about her preschool teacher today. Here is the story in her words...
"One day when Miss H was at Sea World, a bird flew by and went splat and pooped all over her shoulder and she had to go home and take a bath."
To which I responded... "You know, Honey, when I was in Jr. High, I was walking down the street with some of my friends and a bird flew over my head and pooped right on my head."
To which she responded..."Did you have to go home and take a bath?" My answer, "Yes."
So...Question #2 is - Are Miss H and I the only people who have had a bird 'splat' on them? If not, please share your story so we can all be in the I've-been-bombed-by-a-bird club.
