Why are there so many adults who are germapohobic & SO MANY kids who LOVE GARBAGE?
I am not afraid of germs, but I know many who are, and my children definitely are not amongst them. They seem drawn to trash like a magnet. Even my older girls-- if there is the slightest chance of a treasure to be found, it doesn't matter where it is stuck in or what it is stuck to, it will be extracted and cradeled like a newborn babe.
I am painting our living room & so last night we moved our piano to the middle of the room & I discovered lots of junk behind it. I threw it all in the garbage because it was mixed with mouse poop (aargh! those furry little mongrels!) & when I came into the living room this morning the girls had dug through the trash bag that I had mistakenly left on the floor & had created a wonderland out of all the bits & bobs that I had just thrown away! If I could be drawn to my doing my dishes as much as they are drawn to garbage I would hire myself out to do other's dishes for free just because I loved it SO MUCH!.
loads of love & corned beef xoxo heidi
