Poll

Question: What would you think if you saw a mother crocheting/knitting while waiting at her child's gymnastics/dance/etc. class?

Options:

She looks like an old lady./What poor soul is going to get that? / Does she think she's impressing us?/ What a loser!/etc.

That's cool./ I wish I knew how./I like to do that too./ etc.

I don't even notice or pay attention at all.

It would be in between not noticing and thinking it's cool.  I would notice because I notice pretty much everything around me.  I guess I would think it's kind of cool, but my reaction would be closer to "hmm, she's knitting" and that would be it.

If I noticed, I wouldn't think anything negative.

Nothing. I crochet and I love it. It calms me down when I'm mad.

I'm too busy trying to watch my kid!  I don't notice any of the other parents and what they are doing!

I don't really notice but if I had to choose an option to think it would be "I hope that's not for me!"

I would think that she┬┤s more coordinated than I am and that she knows how to make good use of her time.






Peace

Thank you everybody. I was just wondering how many mothers would likely be snickering at me if I chose to actually do something while I'm sitting there. I didn't want to embarrass my kiddos with a crazy mama. Thanks. It looks like a pretty small percentage that would be thinking I was ridiculous. :-) I know I shouldn't care, but I do.
