This entry will be brief and to the point. I have weeds. I hate them. I kill them.
I do not want to kill my child with Roundup.
At first we tried our homemade all-purpose cleaner that we've now made 1/2 with orange infused vinegar and 1/2 with water. This still has excellent cleaning power, but less stinking power. While lovely in the house, it refused to kill weeds.
We moved on to simply 100% vinegar.
I let my child spray the weeds for fun while I sipped a cold beverage.
Look mama, I accidentally sprayed my arm! Should I hurry and wash it?
No, sweetie, it's just vinegar. We eat that on french fries.
Mama, that's gross.
Maybe, but it won't kill you. Please come spray this one by my foot. I am enjoying my cold beverage.

I'll bet you were so smart you already knew this, but I was so excited! And, I enjoyed my cold beverage even more while watching someone else kill the weeds. Is it inappropriate to exploit child labor if they enjoy it??
