Last night, as Jason and I were coming home, there was a nice truck next to us at the stop light. I didn't think anything of it until out of the corner of my eye, I see a man's hand out the window dropping garbage out into the street! We couldn't believe it. As we started to drive on, he stuck his hand out again and threw out some more garbage! Unbelievable! Right then, I knew what my mommy moment was going to be!
I am VERY passionate about being a good citizen. I owe my mom for teaching me. We didn't always see eye to eye, and there were things she probably could have done a little differently, but she did teach me to be a good person. It's something that I'm extremely grateful for! And it's something I am very avid about teaching my children. My greatest hope for the future that my children will grow up to be good, useful, upstanding citizens who take pride in their country and their community.
- Be honest
- Follow the rules*
- Put away their grocery carts
- Take care of their homes and yards
- Throw garbage in the garbage can and not on the ground
- Recycle (we're still working on this one)
- Work hard and clock out for breaks
- Give 2 weeks notice before quitting a job
- Purchase sensible vehicles that get good gas millage (and check consumer reports before doing so)
Well, that's about it for my mommy moment. I thought a collection of Garbage songs would be appropriate for today. I think I'm Paranoid, Milk, and Stupid Girl are among my favorites!
We would love to have some more participants for Proud Mommy Monday! Everyone is doing something right! Hop on over to Shannon's blog for more details. It's fun to read what other mothers are doing right! Plus, when you participate, it gives you 2 things: #1 a tiny pat on the back that you need and #2 something else to blog about! Oh, and if you do join us, add your link to the McLinky at the bottom of her post so that we can all read and learn from you!
