An Example of My Righteousness

Have you noticed that there is a new morality out there? Morals have nothing to do with being pro-family, pro-marriage, or pro-life, anymore. Some people will even label you as intolerant, old-fashioned, or hateful if you try to defend what you believe in. Instead, they believe that if you drive a big car, use regular light bulbs, have more than 1.5 children, and don't recycle everything, then you are a selfish, evil person.

I am mostly evil. I drive a mini van, I hate these bulbs, and I have 3 kids, but I hope I can redeem myself with my recycling efforts. I have recently taken recycling to a whole new level: I now recycle Marcus' breakfast cereal.

Marcus likes to have a full bowl of cereal every morning with no milk, but he only eats a few bites of it. I tried giving him smaller portions, but then he thinks he is being ripped off and makes a fuss. So lately, after he walks away from the table, I put his cereal in a plastic container. The next morning I pour it into his bowl, he takes a few bites and I save it. I feel this is a win-win situation. I am saving a lot of money on breakfast cereal, he is none the wiser, and most importantly, I am recycling!

I should win an award like "Super-Mom-Recycler" or something.

That really is a fabulous idea. We have a lot of food that goes to waste because I forget to put it away, so then I have to throw it away. Tomorrow I'm going to try to do just that.

I do try to destroy the earth, but this does sound like a good idea!

You are so evil...but the cereal recycling totaly makes up for it.

Sometimes it's like we're twins. I do the EXACT thing with my oldest who at 14 STILL eats cereal with no milk and pours herself about 3 times what she'll eat. We're going to save the planet, you and I!

If your evil what does that make? I drive a Suburban and am well on my way to 4 kids.

Brilliant! Now if my kids just didn't add milk, I'd be set. :)
