So I'm sans one child today and was beavering away with these for the kids teachers on Monday.....
....when I get a phonecall.
Jerry: Can you eat Spider Crabs?
Me: I don't know, you're the one out fishing.
Jerry: Will you look it up online. I'll throw it back if we can't eat it but it's big.
Me: Call me back in 5 minutes.
Yes, you can eat Spider Crab. And it is glorious! But it's time consuming. I had to find the most humane way to kill it, how to cook it and how to get the meat out. It's also a pain in the ass when I'm questioned as to why I'm "cooking it that way" when I'm the one who was looking it up and actually cooking it. Never mind that it took over half an hour to get the meat out of. I have better things to do with my time you know. Like teachers presents. Cards. Laundry. Washing dishes.

Today's after school conversation with Leah.
Leah: "I saw Hazel today"
Me: "Oh, who's Hazel?"
L: "No Mom, Haysel"
M: "What's a Haysel?"
L: "Nooooo MOM! Heysuls"
M: "Heysuls? I don't know what you mean."
L: (Tapping top of head) You know, the rain that hurts you on your head?"
M: "Oh, hailstones!"
L: (Rolls eyes) "That's what I said"
I really must pay more attention....
