OOOH!!! I thought of one! February 8, 2009

So, I was having trouble remembering to take the damn recyclables a) out to the bigger can outside and b) getting that can out to the curb every Thursday, so we were just tossing all the plastic, glass and aluminum more often than not. Not good, especially in a city that provides pick up. Then the boys (they are 8 and 7, but will very soon be 9 and 8 ) started whispering about allowances and saving money for particular video games and whatnot. Sometimes my brilliance amazes me. *THEY* are now responsible for not only the recyclables, but ALL trash! WOOT!! They have to do some other things too, but for $6 a week (3 each), I think that’s a STEAL! Especially since it keeps me from having to nag A about it … and even more so because no matter how I nag, he still never does anything …

Kid power. It RAWKS.

    Hey wait?? Isn’t that why we have kids in the first place?? To do all the jobs *we* don’t want to do and then convince them that it’s “character building”??

    That’s what my parents told me!! šŸ˜‰
