So last night after my FVMOM meeting I did a little bit of shopping. Walmart, superstore, easy shopping, one stop, cheap prices, etc... So I picked up some stuff, needed toilet paper. On one of the end caps they had Soft and Gentle for $5.00. Single roll, not the double roll which does not fit into the wall toilet paper things. Super deal. Picked it up and put it in my cart. Started reading the fine print and it said, "75% recycled fiber". Huh, rewind that... "75% recycled fiber?"
Are toiletries supposed to be recycled? I'd prefer them to be a one-time use thing. I mean, what exactly are they recycled from?
Jacob's birthday is in 11 days and his party is in 10. I have a feeling that's why he's been acting poorly. He doesn't listen, he's sassy, he's not been the kindest big brother, and he's probably just being a normal 4 almost 5 year old. He's normally such a kind, thoughtful child. He has been very stubborn about listening, he wants to do what he wants to do - when he wants to do it. I hope it changes soon. Its very wearing for a parent to be consistent.... and to endure it for 12+ hours a day.
And in the days of DVR's, TIVO, replay, etc... Why can't we just have a do-over button for our children? Things start to go badly, they are in the middle of a melt down and we just hit the do-over button. I call do-overs all the time when I play games. We rewind things and fast forward things all the time. I'd just fast-forward over the meltdown and concentrate on the hugs.
