look creativity in the eye and call it what you will

I was talking to my sister on the phone this morning. Just prior to her call, we saw the forecast for another hazy, hot and humid day, and I announced "It's craft day!" to my kids. Thankfully, we're sporting the super-size A/C in our kitchen window. It comes in handy on days like this.Apparently the background noise was too much, because twice she had to ask "What?" to which I replied "It's craft day."
"Crap day?" I heard on the other end.(laughing) I asked "did you just say what I thought you said? We're having C-R-A-F-T day," I spelled.
"no, but if it was at my house, I'd call it crap day" she said.

I knew exactly what she was talking about. The fall-out from a day of crafting is HUGE. It took hours to clean the kitchen. But just look at those paper flowers! The embroidered eyeglass case! The future puppet shows just waiting to happen! And doo-dads that will be loved and collect dust forevermore. I love and must promote craft day.

Awesome!! I remember craft day at my house growing up. My attempt at punching a hole through a film can with scissors earned me a trip to the ER for stitches:)

You are a good mom! Due to the fact that I never do stuff like that, can I send my kids to your house??!

Okay, it must be a girl thing. We don't do that over here!
