Kids. Halloween. Crafts. Nothing could be more natural. Right?
Unless you’re a 34 y.o. career woman without kids. That was me a few years ago. Ok, 20 years ago – but who’s counting?
Here’s the deal – I had never been around kids. I meet the man-of-my-dreams. He has 3 sons. I couldn’t have kids of my own. Perfect fit!
Having never been a parent, I assumed ‘parenting’ meant crafting around the table, laughter, love, and all the other warm fuzzies I saw on the Hallmark commercials.
And we actually did do some crafting, me and the 7, 10 & 12 year old boys. Once. One time.
Then reality hit. And when I say ‘hit’ I mean it slapped me upside my head. Quite a few times.
But that was 20 years ago. We made it through – all of us. They didn’t slip antifreeze in my Pepsi and not one of them have any
visible scars from me.
Now that I’m a gramma I try and craft with Grandson at least once a week. I’ve almost gotten past the point where I cover him and every surface in sight with dropcloths and garbage bags. Almost.
