How To Get Fired As A Room Mom

I can’t take it anymore.  THIS is NOT September people!  It’s June.  We are done-kids, teachers, parents. Done with school!

Full-on whooped.  No more bright and shiny like when the school year started. No more everything getting done on time – much less BEFORE it’s due.

Now it’s more like, “WHAT? What is due? When is that ceremony? How many more activities?  We had 3 weeks, and you’re telling me 5 minutes before it’s due? Seriously, you’re not even thinking about asking me to do another project, play, event, are you?” I may smack the next person that tells me there’s another event.  Since that’s typically frowned upon–I could always opt for another root canal.

I am so flipping checked out of school by now – it’s surprising my kids even get there.

And get this: I’m ROOM MOM.

Not just that. I’m LEAD ROOM MOM. Oh my gawd…who allowed that to happen??

But now, I think I got fired as Room Mom.
