Habiscus

I don't know if my interest in Indoor Air Quality is waning or if I'm just tired of telling people, "No its probably not the bit of mold growing on the grout behind your bathroom sink but the two pack a day cigarette habit your exposing your child too!!!!" Every time I think I've heard it all I haven't. Stan visited a house that was home to five adult smokers the toddler had recently been admitted to the hospital for CO poisoning. They were concerned that they had a pipe leak!! The kids hands and feat were blue!! OK Bones and breath out of the way.

This beauty was growing at my Mothers.

My son kept picking the purple flowers in the window box and holding them under his chin. He kept asking me to see if he liked butter!! Guess I will have to point out a buttercup to my little one so he doesn't go through life thinking any old flower will give you that dairy insight!!! While I am on the subject of B he left a few veggie nuggets after lunch and went to play with his trains. Upon his return he demanded to know what had become of his left over nuggets. I told him I wrapped them up and put them away. To this he groaned/moaned, "Not my last nugget Momma I was going to save them to get through the hard winter Months!!!!" I kid you not exact words out of his mouth!! Need I remind you the kid lives in Florida and has never seen a cold winter day let alone a month of it..........

I like the way they get the kids involved in the Arbor/Earth day festivities.It was a fun and rewarding day for both the kids and the grands also.You mentioned they had carts as big as trucks.Well we heard they are to have a "best decorated cart contest" next year and the judges are going to be kids.enough giberish...............dad
