For the Record ...

"Why do I need to be with a bunch of girls," Dee Jr. inquired when we were driving to the CT Sheep & Wool Festival this past Saturday.

As a fiber-lovin' mom, I responded, "Think of it this way, you'll know the way to a woman's heart is through a yummy hank of yarn." I'm not sure if he bought it, but he didn't press the issue any further.

Until we got home: "Mom," he said, "I'd like for you to take me to an event that boys like to go to, OK?" He is a big baseball and football fan, so I knew instantly that either type of event would be high on his list of things to do. I told him I needed think about it.

After he returned home from school yesterday I asked him, "Hey, remember that conversation we had about wanting to go to a event boys like?"

He nodded yes.

"How would you like to go to a Met's game?"

"Mets? Sure!" he exclaimed. Then a few moments went by. "Hey, wait a minute! What's the catch?!! Is there crocheting involved in this offer????!"

You know, I just can't put anything past this boy! He is so smart -- and quick! LOL

I'm talking about the Met's Stitch and Pitch planned for June 5th. In fact, they're looking to set the Guinness World Record™ for "Most People Crocheting Simultaneously." And yes, if we decide to go, Dee Jr. would need to do a bit of crocheting to help with the record.

Upon learning this requirement Dee Jr. said, "I'm still willing to go!"

Ah, that's my boy!

How about you? Are you interested in helping break the record of most people crocheting simultaneously, eating hotdogs, and watching a ball game? For more information click here.
