My Little Environmentalist

When I was preparing the food for my boy's Children's Day party last week, I had those cocktail sausages cut into heart shapes.  My boy was happy at this stage looking on while I did the cutting. When it came to the stage where toothpicks were needed to hold the "hearts" in place, he commented.

Ian: Mommy, Don't use toothpicks.
Mommy:  Not toothpicks, what then to hold the two ends together?
Ian: Save the woods and the trees.  Just eat like that la... no need to cut.
Mommy: *_* *Boy, you make your old mom feels so bad*

I have to give the credit to daddy for his "undying love" towards recycling. The boy gets the influence from his old man.    They would keep whatever deemed recyclables until the condo runs out of of space and that's when the old lady aka yours truly starts nagging.  Only then the trash would be transported to our old house in Puchong.  Part of the living hall of our old house is now being occupied to store the recycling items before sending to the recycling center.  Proceeds from the recycling will then go to this little boy called Ian.  His wallet is getting fatter by the month. Lol....

Yes...it's good that they learn when they're young. "We do not inherit this earth - we merely borrow it from our children."
