Do you have crazy wild testosterone maniacs living under your roof?  Do you spend your days “battling for justice”, modifying “alien ships”, and keeping an eye out for dead stuff to poke with a stick?  Sometimes our boys look thoughtful and innocent  like in the photo to the left below.  However, more often than not they look like the photos of spidey there on the right…I rest my case.

As much as we try to fully embrace our little boys they sometimes drive us crazy.  This is why Stephanie and I get together and go on “fairy benders”.  We self medicate with uninterrupted girly time where we use our finite muscles to make stuff.  We made this batch of harvest fairies with left over corn husks and oak caps that we found under some of our favorite trees.  Ok!  And a few bits of silk flower bling from the craft store.  We sold them at our school harvest fair and made $155!  Not bad for a few boy crazy moms who just needed a little balance in their lives.
