It’s about time someone addressed the very real and largely ignored issue of grizzly bears attacking and eating our children and their teachers on school grounds. It’s totally underreported by the biased mainstream media, but it’s a real and persistent problem. I read on some blog one time that 963 children died on elementary school playgrounds from grizzly attacks, and now, after this hearing, teachers are finally talking about how hard it is to avoid the bears while they are going to and coming from their schools and sharing their concerns about it. The threat is real. Has the do-nothing Congress even talked about it? No. Never. I’m glad that someone is finally going to start protecting our kids. With the guns. In the schools. From the grizzly bears. In all of the states.
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.
