I’ve got a new post at Deep South Moms this week about me summoning my inner glue gun goddess. It nearly killed me, but I survived. A word to the wise for all you slacker moms out there. Avoid stepping foot into your child’s school the weeks leading up to the mega school blow out fundraiser! You WILL be summoned to do something and it will most likely be outside your comfort zone. Either that or go ahead and volunteer early on for something easy or you might find yourself baking six batches of cookies and shoving them begrudgingly into ziploc bags while you swear to reward yourself with a huge glass of wine or three for being mom of the year and wondering if it wouldn’t all be easier if you could just write a check. Ooops I didn’t just say that.
I’d love your thoughts on school mom craftiness. Does it come easy for you or do you break out in a sweat when you walk into Michaels or Hobby Lobby? Does the term hodge podge leave you dazed and confused?
It turns out I’m not as lame as I thought, but I’m no Martha Stewart. Then again Martha has a huge staff at her beck and call.
All kidding aside about school fundraisers, from the looks of the throngs of parents and grandparents who showed up at ours I’m thinking it was a grand success.
As far as my girls…well, if you offer face painting and those heart attack inducing inflatable bouncy things then you’ve planned a rock star evening.
