the other day my oldest, dd8, went downstairs to watch cartoons while I was doing dishes.. to my surprise, 40 min later, I walk into the room to find her wide-eyed laying in the bed...watching an infomercial


she instantly jumps up and starts telling me all about this H2O mop- including that it "barely takes any effort!" She was telling me all about how our floors aren't really clean, and that this is the mop that will solve our problems..



it cleans carpets too (she's saying as I type)..

Last night she said that she wants to put it on her Christmas list- only three easy payments of $33- and is wondering if Santa will bring it..

hahaha, I think we have a little consumer-in-training here


(now I just have to figure out a way to keep them from sucking her in next time- it did look fun though
)

Last spring at Girl Scout camp, I found a drawing lying around showing a dripping faucet with the words, laboriously printed by a ~7-year-old, "Are you tired of seeing monny go down the drane on home owner's inshurents?"

And THAT is exactly why you need one,

My dd(7) did that too a few months ago!!! At Target she stopped and said "OMG, is that the SALLY FOSTER GREEN VEGGIE BAG?!" She couldnt believe our luck and told me all about them!!

Well, Id rather have her explaining fresher veggies to me than some of the other things she could learn from tv!!

DD is absolutely determined that we will buy Green Bags. She saw an ad - once - on the weather channel.

I do think it's hilarious that toy ads mostly leave her untouched (she sees them sometimes at my sister's or mom's), but household gadgets seem to have a huge appeal.

I have to say....Those green bags RAWWKK.LOL I can't believe how long my zuchinni last in those things.

My kids want a shark. I think it's kind of like that h2o thing. We watch too much t.v. This thread has inspired me to turn it off today

I actually do plan to buy some. I used to use a green disk that worked the same way, but I can't find them, anymore.
