Mama Busted in Daycare For Carrying A Concealed Weapon

Behold, Mama's weapon of choice:

The full story: Mama has been taking beads and string and making bracelets. Along the way, she has been using (and losing) every pair of scissors we have in the house. So she went into the kitchen and took the POULTRY SHEARS out of the knife rack. Poultry shears, as you well know, are designed for cracking the delicate bones of fowl. Apparently, they work just as well on gold stretchy thread. And people who run programs full of delicately-boned people do not look kindly on POULTRY SHEARS being wielded about. (Apparently Mama had them in her hand, and was gesturing with them. As you do).

If she IS NOT kicked out of her daycare, this will be very very funny. (Is she looking for enforcement money? Recruiting for the geriatric division of the L.ati.n Protesting the taking away of Hot Dog Day?)

(As H has not called in a blind panic, I'm assuming / hoping / praying to Jesus that this is the case) **CONFIRMED*** She has not been kicked out. (Let the jokes begin).

Lord, may I please lead an un-interesting life?

(and get pregnant?)

If anyone took my poultry shears out of my kitchen they would have to deal with me and the meat cleaver. I am not very forgiving when someone messes with my kitchen stuff.

I hope Mama can return to daycare.

Oh, good grief. Yes, less of the entertainment, please!

I'll be watching for news of geriatric gang violence outbreaks.

Glad she wasn't kicked out!

Yes..while wildly entertaining...we really need God to give you a break!

Perhaps momma should try safety sissors next time :)

Oh my goodness. I'm glad that she wasn't kicked out of daycare. I'm sure the scissors seemed like a good idea at the time. I hope it doesn't happen again though.
