Kiddie Talk from my Daycare Kiddos.. They are something.
This week, Mr. C was arriving at his usual 7:05 a.m It was Monday, Trash Day, I decided to clean out the refrigerator.
When he arrived I was busy dumping containers of food down the garbage disposal. You know the tiny bit of Mashed potatoes, the one left over hot dog that never was eaten.
I was moving onto the door of the fridge and there were 3 bottles of salad dressing that we just didn't like after buying or had a tiny bit in the bottle and wasn't worth saving any longer. I had the trash can right by the fridge and threw them into the can. I was hurrying as the Wee Babe would be here any minute.
Mr. C... Uh... "Aunt Rene what are you doing? I reply.." Oh I am just hurrying and cleaning out the refrigerator." he says to me..."Why are you throwing those away?". I am hurrying and say to him..."Because we don't like the one kind and the other two are almost Empty and want to clean out the fridge". Then Mr. C... tells me what he is thinking "But why are you throwing them in the garbage, Aren't they Cyclables...???" OOOOHHHH NOOOO.... What was I thinking, I usually am very careful and recycle everything.. He was so right, I was so caught..
So I say You are right Mr. C.. I was hurrying and didn't want to have to rinse them out and get them out to the recyclables.. Mr. C fixed that problem too... He says.."I can rinse them if I stand on the chair"
He did, and took them out to the Red Bin then helped me carry the Red Bins to the curb.. I am glad he was there to remind me.. Recycling is important, even if you are in a hurry.
I am also glad he is learning from my example of Recycling and need to keep setting that Example.
