It's Mummy Juice!

Each year I struggle with finding a semi-healthy snack or treat to send with the kids to school at Halloween time. This year, I found an idea that included wrapping juice boxes in tape with googly eyes... Mummy Juice! Brilliant and clever, right?. Right. Just as long as I realize that I am not the one who is brilliant and clever.

Zaffron: Mom! This is such a cool idea.

Mgazi: It is, Mom.

Me: I know, right?

Me: Wait, why would you think I couldn't come up with something like this on my own?

Zaffron: Don't take this the wrong way, Mom. It's just that this is such a creative idea.

Me: Hey! I'm creative all the ---

Zaffron: It was Daddy, was it?

Me: No, it wasn't Daddy.

Mgazi: It was probably Daddy.

Me: It wasn't your father.

Zaffron: Hmmm. I wonder who is was... Can you pass me a googly eye?I

In the end, I didn't admit to anything -- too insulted to think my children would consider my husband more creative than me. He doesn't have a crafty bone in his body (unless duct tape is involved).

The little stinkers did call it though. Of course it wasn't my idea. I don't have time to be coming up with original crafts! I have a family to feed, cats to ignore, mystery goo to scrape off the floor!

I don't have time for this crap! That's what Pinterest is for!
