I've been a room mom the past two years. I volunteer every book fair and last year I was going into Greg's class once a week and Graham's every other week.
I love helping at my kids school, but I was REALLY not wanting to be a room mom this year. To be honest, it's just one more thing on top of running a Cub Scout Pack and all the other mom mumbo jumbo I do. Volunteering is one thing...but room mom feels like a whole other pack meeting I have to plan for.
I thought I was in the clear until Graham brought a note home saying NO PARENTS SIGNED UP! Really?! Only 3 of us signed up to even come into help in the classroom! How sad is that?
I felt badly, for Graham really, not the teacher as much. But I didn't want him to have sorry arse holiday parties because every other parent was "so busy."
So I said yes to room mom. Fabulous.
