garbage.... sneaky?

While my kids napped I was cleaning out a junk drawer and tossed out all their old silly twisty straws, since they never seem clean to me. On pure instinct I put some paper towels on top, to hide my evidence. Do you ever hide garbage to avoid arguments or broken hearts?

  • I have to! The couple of times I forgot, my 2 year old was running around with toys that he dug out from the trash.

  • I do it all the time, and they never even miss the junk I toss.

  • No but I used to immediately take the garbage out to the garbage can outside.

  • Yeah, but mainly with my husband. :) He will take something that is broken (and costs less to buy a new one than fix it) out of the trash, and keep it in the garage forever. Let me point out he is not Mr. Fix It. He is Mr Break It. I am the fixer around our house.
