Being a Green Example Pays Off


My six year old received a video game that was not quite appropriate for his age for his birthday. He had played it over his friend's house and really liked it, so his friend's mom went out and bought him a used copy (Yay used!) as a gift. It was thoughtful, but we decided he couldn't keep it.

We went to return it to the store where they bought it and let our son choose another used game that was for his age.
When he went up to make the exchange, the cashier started to put his new(ish) game in a bag. My son looked at the young man and said, "I don't need a bag for just one thing."

To which his proud mommy screamed loudly in the store, 'That's my boy!"

He's heard me say it so many times that it's ingrained in him now, too.

My hubby finally remembered (not that I always do) and walked out the door with our canvas bags to buy groceries:)

It may be because he's watching planet green with me or just because I nag him:)

What do you think of Planet Green? The one show I was excited about with Bill Nye seems to have disappeared into thin air after just one episode. The show is still mentioned on their website, but there is absolutely no way to contact Planet Green from their site. Not even when you click on contact us.

None of the other shows have really grabbed me yet.
