I'll be honest at times I try to be really crafty with my kids but I've never been the Martha Stewart type. I can't sew (or maybe I choose not too) and I don't keep a perfect home, I do love to bake, but I don't always have the greatest meals prepared. I also don't always have my children doing the most crafty things, but that's what grandma's are for, right? I see these other moms who are making their kids' Halloween costumes by hand or knitting their children's Christmas outfits and all I have to say to them is, "Let's lower the bar ladies!" Ha!
All kidding aside, these super moms are actually slowly, but surely inspiring me to become a little more crafty. I mean let's not get a head of ourselves I probably won't be sending hand made Valentine's to school that look like ipods or sending fresh fruit to class that is arranged to look like little snowmen, yes you over-achievers know who you are, but I might try to plan some fun crafts for this summer. My daughter, Montana, will be twelve this month and she loves crafts, so with her help, she and I can surely draw up some fun ideas for her and the boys to do this summer. We could take pictures and post them on the blog. My ten-year-old son, Cody, will really enjoy this and Boone will too. In fact Boone saves all of his crafts from school. The newest one's get displayed and the older ones he keeps under his dresser. Montana is sure this is a fire hazard but he just can't bring himself to throw any of them away. This is where most mom's would sneak a few out at a time and pitch them but I'm saving them and then will save some of them to give him when he's married with kids.
Speaking of Boone, he came into my room this morning and crawled into bed with my husband and I. Then he said, "So when is Eagle Day, I'm just asking?" I looked at him. "What is Eagle Day?" I asked. "Well, I think it's November 14th and its about eagles and what they eat," he replied. I still have no idea what in the heck he was talking about but he was sure there was an Eagle Day.
