Helping Out

I am sure that most people consider me a super-mom.  I take care of my kiddies, my hubster and my home.  I just barely have time to take a quick class or two at the gym and hang out with my gal pals between all of my obligations.

Something that is VERY important to me is volunteering at the children’s school.  Their education is so important to me, and helping out in the classroom is the least I can do to support their wonderful teachers.  I do most of my volunteering in Merlin’s class because I think they probably have a hard time finding parents who are intelligent enough to keep up with the genius class.

Today I was in charge of a special “Congress of the Minds” event in their class.  I volunteered to run it last September, but of course I had to allow the other women to do SOME of the work.  Margie Harris was my co-chair and I checked in with her pretty often.  I mean, WAY more often than that bitch Margie claims I did.  Anywhoo, women are so, so competitive, aren’t they?  And I truly believe that we should be supporting each other, embracing each other, loving each other.

So today I went in for the event and it was great.  I have to say that I am a wonderful chair, because it all ran so smoothly and there was a LOT going on.  My committee had all decided to wear pants and flats because they were running around like crazy.  I hadn’t gotten that email apparently, but it was just as well.  Someone needs to be able to stand still and supervise and correct the other ladies when they don’t fulfill my vision.  Also, I know that Ty appreciated having a chance to chat with me, even though he was pretty busy too.

There is nothing wrong with caring about your appearance.  Margie could take a lesson from me here!

Merlin really loved his special day with Mommy, so I feel like I have done my job.

He didn't say much after school, but that is the way with boys.  I know he totally loved everything about having me at school today.

    You are such a super Mom. I don’t know how you do it all. And you look good while doing it too. Margie sounds frumpy.

    You remind me of those Moms who are all adopting from foreign countries to give an orphan a home on top of everything else they do. Have you ever thought of that?

      I have thought of that except what if they want me to take an ugly one? I mean, can you say, “No because she is ugly,”? It would be a super-uncomfortable conversation.

        Oh yeah..I never thought about that. The ones I have seen are all pretty cute. I was hoping you’d try it and then if it went well for you..I’d get one too! We’d be twinsies.

        Maybe one of us could call an adoption agency and ask about how they decide who gets the attractive babies. It makes sense that they would send uglier ones to ugly families, but you never know.
