Every Saturday morning as a child, I would wake to a list of chores my mom had set out on the kitchen island for me and my sisters to complete. Often times, I would just skim through the list and pick the easiest and least time consuming jobs to complete, but there was a catch! My parents had attached a monetary opportunity with each of the chores, the value growing as the task increased in effort. Like many kids, I jumped at the opportunity to make a couple bucks – maybe I could go see that new Harry Potter movie in the theaters again! During the spring and summer months, mowing the lawn would be on that list, so if it wasn't too hot, I'd jump out there and get going. However, as a 13-year old girl concerned about looking cool while pushing a lawn mower (is that even possible?), I didn't understand that going shoeless, wearing a dress, or removing debris with my hands was anything to fuss about.
Oh, if I had only known! Not only did the neighbors think I was strange, but I had a firm talking to about lawn mower safety and how important it is to prepare for the task at hand. Whether you're the one that mows the lawn in your household or someone else does it, be sure that you're protecting whoever that someone is.
