All of the kids in class during the party.
- Don't volunteer to do a craft by yourself...that would be impossible
- You should write the name of the kids on the back of the crafts before starting if you are doing anything with paint, glue, etc (which I did...disaster averted there)
- Volunteer to do a craft in a different class from your child...Harrison was not okay with me painting other kids' hands.
- 1-2 year-old classrooms smell like poopy diapers at all times of the day
- Poopy Diapers still make me gag
- The associates at AC Moore are on a different craft-lingo level than I am
- I need to buy a hot-glue gun

I hit send.
I went back to my email to see if I put his birth date in it and I realized, that I put "tickle tit" instead of "tackle it." Oh. my. gosh. I just sent an email like that to the head of the church school. I laughed so hard that I cried. Then I called Allison, my mom and Adam to tell them what I had done. I couldn't stop laughing. All three advised me to send an e-mail to correct it immediately. So I did.
"Unfortunately, I sent the last email without proofing it. I meant to say 'tackle it.'"
I still haven't heard a response.

We will celebrate Valentine's Day as a class on Thursday, February 11th. Please let me know if you'd like to do a craft with the kids or bring some treats for the class.
I decided that I would not be bringing treats as kids. I don't have time to bake (nor do I make time to do it) and not every kid loves fruit like my award-winning toddler. I did decide that I probably could help with a craft. That should be fun. I've seen the crafts Harrison brings home and maybe I can help him make his a little more...well, wall-worthy.
Dear Miss Crissy
I would love to do a craft with the kids on Thursday. Just let me know what time you'd like for me to be there.
On Saturday night, I received an e-mail from the teacher:
Thanks so much for volunteering to lead a craft for the class. I'm sure the kids are going to love whatever you are going to do. Is 11:15 am enough time to be able to complete it?
My thought process:
Ugh...what? I am going to lead the craft.? I thought I was signing up to help. In fact, I thought I was just signing up to do one too. Oh gosh, I have to lead 10 kids in a craft that are all under the age of two? Immediately, I say to Adam, "I have to call Harrison's teacher and tell her there has been a mistake. I am not gifted in this area, and well, what the heck am I going to do." Adam says, "C'mon...it isn't that big of a deal. You should do this." "What? Why should I do this." Anyway, he went on to explain that it would be good for me. Whatever that means. So, I didn't back out. I was going to back-out this morning until the teacher sent out an email to the whole class telling the parents that I so graciously volunteered to do a craft. My response to the email, "What kind of adhesive do you use in class?" I figured that made it sound like I knew what I was talking about. Now...what the heck do I do? Any suggestions are welcomed!

This is when Adam was trying to teach Harrison to pat his head and rub his belly. This was at least 20 minutes of entertainment for us.
