Why #Movember for me.

As day 15 has come and gone, we're past the halfway point of Movember.

And some of us are probably wondering what we got ourselves into :) I thought it would be a good chance to reflect on why I got involved.

There is an element of team-work and fun, and let's admit it - playing with our facial hair style is one of those rare things us men get to do - usually reserved for vacation time. To have a full month to grow something a little different without being judged is a bit of a perk.

Interview with a Toddler

In this episode, Charlie gets asked what he ordered for dinner. He forgets to mention his french fries, and Anna helps him out by trying to circle the fries on his menu (with a crayon) so he knows what else to say.

So the environmental message isn't working.

I figured for a kid in Me to We club that the whole environmental impact of forgetting her lunch bag would work. But apparently it didn't, because only 2 days later she forgot her re-usable lunch bag again. 

Now, let me explain briefly that her forgetting her lunch bag is a huge pain in the butt, as we only have enough re-usable containers to send each kid with their lunch and snacks - if there's a set missing, I have to hunt for odds and ends of tupperwear to put food in, and that kind of ticks me off.

Fun with Lunch Bags, Part 3.

So, my daughter forgot her re-usable, environmentally friendly lunch bag at school again. I once again used art to remind her of the environmental impact of her carelessness.
