Practice What You Preach

Today I cleaned out the fridge. You know throwing away all those containers at the back of the fridge that hold mystery meals. As I was nearing the end of the smelly grossness I had to take the lid off the trash can and I set it on the counter on top of my decorating tip container which I should have put away days ago. Once the grody chunk of grease was in the trash I accidentally hit the lid with my elbow and it knocked the whole box (which opened) into the trash can. I fished out all of my tips, trying not to breathe or barf and George helpfully said "Maybe that's why we should put things away where they belong." What a smart kid! Maybe I can use this instance in the future to remind her of that!

Maybe George could come help us establish the "where they belong" part of the deal! We still have boxes everywhere... have a deadline tho' before Moga gets here ;-}

It really sucks when something you say to your kids comes out of their mouth back at you!
