The other day, my husband and I spent some time in our yard pulling weeds and raking out the dead spots of grass. My son became excited with the smell of industry in the air, and brainstormed ways that he could help us. When he grew bored holding the trash bag for my husband, he finally decided his best contribution was to make an 8.5 x 11 paper "advertisement" that read, "You can help us clean our house" and stood at the curb trying to drum up business from passing cars. Surprisingly, nobody stopped. My son was frustrated with the results of his efforts, to which I had to explain... we just don't get enough traffic on our street.
