Where, Oh, Where Did This Hippie Mom Fail Her Kids?

Eleven-year Old to Teen: You can't drive to school today because it's Earth Day.

Teen: So What? I'm driving.

Eleven-year Old: If you drive, I'll kill you.

Teen: Just for saying that, I'm driving TWICE around the block before I park the car.

Kids aside, this Hippie Mom will be doing her part on Earth Day. I won't be planting any trees, but I won't be destroying as many either. Instead of getting my Starbucks fix in their paper cups, I bought this:

Not A Paper Cup is ceramic with a silicone lid. And rest assured, while raising my kids I'll put it to good use by drinking lots of coffee. 

Irish coffee that is.

Just don't flip your lid!

And the aluminum water bottles work great for rum ;-)

I'd say "Go Green" but then everyone around here would think I was promoting Michigan State... The golden rule for the older kid, if you can annoy your younger siblings, do so.

Well, over-population is also an environmental problem. See, you didn't fail with the 11 year old!

Very cool, very green. Or white ;)

Just remember, coffee is sacred. Whiskey is very sacred. And Irish coffee is ... good! I just prefer my hooch with ice.

Have your teen drive around the block a couple more times for me! I like it warm.

That reminds me of when my mom's kitchen faucet had a slow leak (drip...drip...) so she kept a pitcher under it. I asked why and she said she was being environmental and was going to use the water on her plants. When I left her house that day I went to the kitchen, turned the faucet to the other sink, and left it on full-blast. I don't think she laughed but I did!
