Taking out the Garbage

For the past 3 months, we've been trying to figure out how to get the kids to stop calling themselves "Garbage." When something goes wrong or someone gets slightly more praise than the other, they resort to "Habtamu excellent? Yordanos garbage?" Saying "No, Yordanos excellent!" only makes things worse.

Today I remembered my Sunday School lessons. Yordi said "Yordanos garbage?" I said "God garbage? God doesn't make garbage, so YOU are not garbage."

Later today, I heard the kids correcting each other "Noooo... God no garbage, you no garbage."

Boo Yah!
