What are your kids up to this summer?
Everywhere you look, you can tell it’s summer from hot temps, swimming pools, kids on bikes and kids on the couch watching TV. As a mother of four girls, ages 14 to 30, I have pretty much had a kid in school for decades. No I’m not making that up… it’s true. Now that my last one is a teenager, I can leave her home alone this summer. Great news! Recently, I walked into the kitchen to see her head in the fridge, not an abnormal thing for a kid her age. However, I noticed the garbage can next to her. I asked what she was doing, She replied, “I’m bored. I am cleaning out the refrigerator. I am throwing away expired stuff or stuff that looks nasty.” When she was finished, the fridge looked great, but nearly everything hit the trash bin! Next stop for me… the grocery store. Now, if I could only get her to clean her room!
