Who Knew I Could Be A Creative Mom? #NaBloPoMo

We don’t do crafts in our house. Jeffrey has never been interested, even when he was in Mom’s Morning Out and when they did weekly crafts in Sunday School. He was probably seven before I realized he didn’t know how to use scissors, because it was never an issue. (Turns out it was part of his motor skills issues, but we didn’t know that then.) And frankly, I’ve been pretty happy with the no-craft thing, because I’m not very creative. I can’t write fiction, as much as I’d love to, because my brain just won’t work that way.

But I just realized a few days ago, that I can be creative sometimes. Jeffrey has always had store-bought Halloween costumes, until he got too big for them. Three years ago, Jeffrey decided at the last minute (after weeks of searching stores for something that fit) that he wanted to be a Ghostbuster. There was no time to order something online and at the time, there was nothing in stores. (We saw a Ghostbuster costume at the Halloween store the other day.)

Yet Another Blogging Challenge #NaBloPoMo

NaBloPoMo November 2013



Yes, I said I wasn’t going to do any more challenges for a while. Well, it’s been a while since June. *cough* What? It has. So, I pick a month in which I’ll be out of town for a week and I have a child’s birthday. Because I never have enough to do. And of course, I didn’t actually plan for this, so I have to go dig out my list of “things I’ll blog about when I get around to it”.

I haven’t done that yet, because I was busy planning for Halloween. Turns out, I am more creative than I thought, so I managed to put together costumes for my kids. Then last night, I had to sit and eat candy while watching ten episodes of Justice League on Netflix while the trick-or-treaters ignored my apartment. Today we had candy hangovers, which we remedied by eating more candy. Now I just need a long nap and some protein. Tomorrow I’ll start being productive.
