Alltop, confirmation that I kick ass

Remember that Nat King Cole song “Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer?”. You don’t? Not a fan?

Okay, well, it’s about the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. Duh! Which is exactly what this post is about.

See, summer is upon us and if you:

1) Live in the L.A. area (that’s the hazy part)  

2) Have teenaged kids ages 13-18 (that’s the crazy part)

3) AND the thought of them sitting around all summer  (that’s the lazy part) in your air-conditioned living room playing Wii and smearing cheeto dust all over your nice, new sectional makes you CRAZY (that’s also the crazy part, obviously)…

Here’s a GREAT IDEA sent in by my friend Babette, she of swine flu information dissemination fame!





Sponsored by the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System

Need something constructive for your daughter, son, niece, nephew, cousins, or neighbor ages 13 – 18 to do this summer? Are you wondering about a career path? If so, Volunteering is JUST what YOU need to do!

I think it sounds GREAT! A real opportunity for personal growth and for padding your kid’s college applications! If I could pass Julia off for 13, she’d be so there. SO GO FOR IT! And if you kid COMPLAINS, remind them that YOU’RE paying for the electricity that powers the Wii and for the Cheetos that power them. Mom giveth and Mom can taketh away.
