Mum Tries To Create Easter Bonnet, Ends Up Making Giant Penis Hat
As any mum will know, making outfits for your kids is never an easy task. Arts and crafts is tricky at the best of times, but when this mum tried to make her son a giraffe Easter bonnet, it ended rather hilariously with her accidentally creating an X-rated penis hat.
Blogger Mrs. Mombastic shared the results of her failed craft experiment on her Facebook page.
She wrote: "Easter bonnet season is upon us... I told my son that he could do whatever he wanted. I was so full of hope. So... so... so.... foolish.
'A giraffe!' He declared with a sparkle in his eye. 'Giraffes are my favourite animal mummy!' I knew that. I half expected him to say giraffe anyway. My husband tried to put him off the idea. Sticking Easter eggs in a nest on top of the hat would be FAR more sensible. Far... far.... far.... easier. But his mind was not to be changed. And I was not to let my son down."
Mrs. Mombastic detailed the trials of making the bonnet, including throwing two bonnets in the bin and going through mountains of papier mache, super glue and gaffer tape. Eventually, her creation was finished. She wrote: "Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: 'The Penis Bonnet'.
"My husband laughed. I cried. But I suppose most importantly, my son was incredibly proud of our hard work. And his favourite part? The giraffes neck. Of course," she wrote.
"We will wait for it to dry, attempt to fashion some spots out of felt and perhaps some horns out of pipe cleaners, stick on some googly eyes and he will enter the Easter bonnet competition full of the same hope that I had had about two days earlier before starting this monstrosity. Hopefully the end result will look slightly less 'penisy' (for want of a better word).
"Life's hard, kid. And unfortunately this will be one of life's tougher lessons..... Yes, your mother is willing to send you into school with a phallic symbol sticking out of a straw hat because she knew how badly you wanted a sodding giraffe bonnet and she didn't want to let you down.
"She's also run out of time and ideas in order to attempt anything else now. But above all, I hope that instead of seeing her as the mum who fails you, you'll see her as the mum who tries. Because even though I get it wrong A LOT of the time... MY WORD AM I TRYING."
However, contrary to the blogger's belief she had "failed", her penis bonnet ended up looking very much like a giraffe once she had stuck some red spots and google eyes on it, and even won the competition.
It just shows you should always be proud of your creations no matter how rubbish you think they are.
