The Tale of Handy Carver

The tale is simple enough: my kids have started calling each other (and everyone else, for that matter) Handy Carver. Where this came from, I have no idea. It all started when Kalena shouted out that Isaac was Handy Carver. And while the Carver part may apply to the situations where he is on a rampage with one of his ninja swords, I'm not exactly sure how it all comes together. I asked Kalena where it came from, and she said she just made it up. Of course. I was a little bit worried that this was some sort of 5-year-old secret lingo that us old folks just didn't understand. Turns out my daughter just has an overactive imagination. Like when she had an imaginary friend.....her name escapes me right now (the whole point of my blog!!!). One day she came up to me and said, "Mom, don't sit there, you'll sit on ______." Obviously.

Interestingly enough, Isaac has jumped on the Handy Carver bandwagon. He now refers to anything and everything as Handy Carver. For instance, "gimme that Handy Carver" and "you silly 'ol Handy Carver" are all phrases I've heard him utter today. So if you run into me and my kids out and about and you get called Handy Carver, don't worry....they're not insulting you. At least I hope not.
