The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

Who knew Cookie Monster was so wise?

I have never been a crafty person, but I remember learning to finger knit as a child. When ever I see people knitting it looks so relaxing. So I decided to give it a try. Turns out I can still do it, so I decided to make a scarf.

Then my daughter asked if I could make her something, so I bought a circle loom and followed a few on-line tutorials. The end result was a hat for my daughter’s doll.

Now my son wants a green blanket. I’m not sure that my skill level is there yet, but why not give it a try?

Mommy, I don’t like the sound of the garage door opening. When it opens that means you are leaving and that makes me sad.
