It's Official! I've corrupted all of my Children!

Today, while I was delivering mail, I saw a headboard with shelves and a wooden desk alongside the road in our neighborhood. I stopped at the house a few minutes later to take a break and told my girls about it. When I got home from work my daughter called me into their room and what do you think I saw sitting on top of her desk? you got it! They had walked the two streets over and carried them home. She is using the headboard as a hutch/bookshelf. I walked into the livingroom and the desk was sitting in the middle of the floor They had been hoping it would fit in the bedroom as another desk for the other daughter but it is too big. But it fits perfectly in my bedroom to hold my computer.

If you are going to corrupt them, I can't think of anything better! he-he I'm so glad I have a fellow junker in my Bob. He isn't at all embarrassed grabbing things out of the garbage or throwing stuff in the car from next to the curb. It is fun to have partners in crime.

This sort of corruption is a good thing. The simplicity of what we do is beyond some people. To have taught your children to look at things in a different light so they can stike out on their own is priceless. This day and age they can be doing worse things. Hats off to your girls. How old are they?

I love hearing that story. Lately I have been noticing that there is hope in the upcoming generation.
