Not Just Another Fire Station


No, this is a fire station made of recyclables! When Carolyn and Susan were here this weekend, we put this together during naps and after bedtime. The station is made of cereal boxes, and the truck is made of an egg carton.

Speaking of egg cartons, we picked up some eggs at Meijer tonight, and soon afterwards, I asked Stephen to put a jar of peanut butter in the cart. Oops! Right on top of the eggs. I checked, and 2 eggs were broken in a significant way. Long story short, I got a dozen solid eggs and Meijer didn't make me pay for the broken ones. That was nice.

Grocery stores have always been generous to me when my kids make mistakes. Between the two girls, I think we've broken at least five containers of some kind, sometimes scattering glass on the floor, but never had to pay a dime for them ( or clean up the mess!)

I'm impressed - what did Stephen think?

Hahahaha. I love the peanut butter story. It reminds of a time when I asked Christine's (my wife) 5-year-old nephew if he would like to "wash down" his chocolate cake with his milk. He replied, "You want me to pour my milk on the cake?" Hahaha.
