Our kids are very environmentally aware. They recently started upcycling – they’re creatively turning milk bottles, egg cartons and cardboard boxes into birdhouses, bird feeders and insect hotels.
It’s a lovely idea. It also means our house is gradually filling up with poorly painted and decorated trash, which we’re supposed to admire.
I started lying to my kids about boxes still being used just so they don’t ask me to have them for their “project”. Who would’ve thought that one of the consequences of a lockdown would be me putting empty milk bottles back in the fridge if the kids are watching? What am I turning into?!
