A couple of weeks ago KB’s first grade class had a field trip to see the movie ‘Earth’ and then walked to the recycling center for a tour.
I went along for the ride.
On the way home from school, I listened as KB and her friend discussed what they had seen and heard.
Then KB made a sheepish confession to her best friend that pierced my very soul: “Mrs. Melissa doesn’t recycle anything.”
Ummm, yeah, that’s me, Mrs. Melissa. The lady who is single-handedly destroying the environment.
I don’t know which was more disturbing: 1) the fact that I don’t recycle, 2) that my first grader has noticed that I don’t recycle and is probably convinced that her mother, who is supposed to be a friend to the planet, is destroying the earth one water bottle at a time, or that 3) my own daughter affectionately refers to me as Mrs. Melissa.
So I ordered up one of these bad boys, and they delivered it right to my driveway this week:
And just in case I’m not the very last person in this county to recycle, here’s the link if YOU need to
get your first grader off your back do your part to sustain the planet.
Your kids will love you for it. And maybe, just maybe, call you Mommy again.
And just in case you’re worried I’m going all Democrat or something, you need not worry. I like my guns, my freedom, and my money too much. 😉
Maybe I can get that slogan printed on one of those reusable shopping totes…
