Love the vintage Ad’s, but unlike the Mom’s in these images I wasn’t smiling when I was using there product today and my kids were standing there helping. Maybe the girl should be hiding under the sink , or the 4 boys hiding their dirty clothes in a trash can would be more like it.
We mark the calendar for everyday we don’t add to out City’s landfill and it feels good to not see our garbage can lined up with the others at the curb every Monday and Thursday.
Neighbors and bloggers friends I’d love a to hear tips on how your family has reduce their household waste.
Gross , Right!
Monday is usually a day I love the start to my weekend a chance to do errand and get the house clean, not today for promptly at 1:24am just an hour into Monday and 2 hours of sleep I was awaken by a Mom’s worst fears “the sick child” as I kept thinking not my child, it’s Monday, it’s Mommy Day thoughts raced around. How did this happen? See when one of my kids gets sick it’s never a runny nose or sore throat , it’s usually a life threatening illness which requires extensive medical attention and when I put her to bed just a few hours ago there wasn’t even a sniffle or cough a perfectly well child but a mere 4 hours we were out the door to the ER with a severe barking cough gasping for air, shaking and an hour later at the hospital her temp went from 98.1 to 104.2 the nurse was shocked she tried different thermometers but they all read over 104. My child #2 was official sick but we still don’t know with what but we were sent home and after 2 hours of sleep it was time for child #1 to get her braces, a glorious day, a day she has been dreaming about, who would all that special attention and now they have colored bands and get a goody bag that rivals the Oscars then followed by the after party at the local car dealer where they have a Gelato bar , we devoured the delectable Italian ice cream over a game of foosball and a ride around the dealership in a golf cart, oh what fun we had then back home to the reality that 1 sick child on Monday usually means 4 sick kids by Friday.
