What us moms do for our kids…….

I dropped off The Inventor at soccer practice the other day.  And as I often do while she is at practice, I go for a power walk.  But this day it was different, I noticed that it was trash night in the town I was walking in.  Just what I needed I thought to myself.  You see The Inventor needed 2 liter bottles to make bottle rockets for the Girls Alive class I teach on Wed. nights.  The director had forgotten to remind everyone to bring 2 liter bottles, she called me in a panic right before I went for my walk.  I immediately spied the green recycling bins in town and knew we were in luck.  So you can only imagine how I looked out power walking, with my iPod, scouring though recycling bins for the coveted 2 liter bottle.  I ended up stealing 5 out of the bins.  I  am certain I looked good walking though my town carrying 5  two liter bottles, stopping and digging through the bins, and listening to my iPod.  I ended up getting a longer walk  due to my “treasure” hunting!  Being a mom is always a new adventure!



  1. YUP…we do just about ANYTHING for our children….I’ve been known to run through the barn fields with a butterfly net trying to catch bugs so my oldest could kill them slowly for a science project…yeah. she got to have her riding lesson and i got to muck thru the fields chasing bugs. You’re a good mom!!

  2. People do that here too Sandy! But I’m afraid it is not for their child’s project, I think it may be what we are served from in “restaurants”!! Yikes!! 🙂 Love you guys!


  3. Oh.. this is great!!! I loved it.. I would have done the same thing… infact.. when I walk.. there is this fella that I always meet up digging through the park garbage cans for recycleables (sp?)… I think nothing of it.. !!
