It's that time of year again for teacher's gifts. Last week, I found myself handing out bill after bill to group gift organizers. Thank goodness for teacher's gift organizers this time of year. They really make life simpler for parents. Kudos to the moms who do it regularly for sports, church school and school.
Mentally in my head I was checking off, first grade church school, first grade teacher, fourth grade church school...
Then I got to fourth grade teacher gift. Who should I give the money to? Damn, it's me....more
Last week I posted about the startling news that I am the Room Mom for Laura's second grade class. I was a little trepidatious, not because of the official duties, but because I knew there were "unofficial" or secret duties, like collecting money for teacher gifts, that I wasn't sure how to go about. Also, my two year-old creates some drag on my in-room volunteering.
Last week I went to Curriculum Night in Laura's classroom, and afterwards another mom and I were chatting with Mrs. S, the teacher. Mrs. S looked at me and said, "You were the only person to volunteer to be a Co-Room Mom, and nobody volunteered to be Room Mom, so I guess that makes you the Room Mom."
