with a toddler in the house!
1. Saving Electricity by turning off the lights (only if that means he can turn them back on again really quick over & over & over.) Also, does doing the same thing with the dimmer switches for the lights & ceiling fans count too?
2. Reducing paper waste-this does mean that it is okay to just randomly tear off unused pieces of toilet paper & throw them in the potty, right?
3. Reduce water usage-but it is okay to let the water run the whole time during a bath & to randomly play with different water faucets after washing hands, on mom & dad's tub while they're getting ready or while brushing his teeth.
4. Lower energy usage-standing with the doors wide open (while the air-conditioning is running) yelling "Here Kitty, Here Kitty" & pushing random buttons on the TV, VCR, DVD player, remote controls, etc should do the job-one can almost hear the pennies being saved & falling into the piggy bank every time you feel the rush of hot air come into the house & when you hear those things clicking on/off, on/off...
Maybe the whole "green" thing isn't going so well here after all, but we'll keep on trying :)
