Totally WON “craft mom” in the final sweep of fourth grade Halloween activities with the Glitter Glue Slime Monsters we made. I’d only been waiting three months for the email that asked if anyone would volunteer to do the classroom crafts. With split-second timing, I snatched the opportunity up, and got to work posting ISO’s on FB for baby food jars, collecting coupons for Michael’s, AC Moore and Hobby Lobby to get glitter glue and searching the Dollar Tree for decorations. But I WON, guys. I totally WON.
Victory somewhat tempered by fact none of the other parents seemed to know we were competing and all were relieved that someone else did it. And I’m choosing to interpret those sidelongs glances I got as they tried to help out as awestruck envy rather than an assessment of my relative mental health and how much time I have on my hands.
Calling it a win and putting “crafter” on LinkedIn as skill.
