Caitlyn was very worried when I picked her up at school today. It seems that the teacher has mentioned to the children that not all the moms have joined PTA....and they need to. So Caitlyn desperately wanted to know when I was going to sign the form and send it back. (Joining PTA doesn't mean being involved in any of the activities. Basically, give them your $5.00 and shut the hell up while they do their jobs.) So I told Cate that of course I would fill out the form and send it in.
She is sitting at the table right now, finishing her lunch that she didn't eat in school and she says to me....
"Mom, are you really really going to join the PTA? Cause it's a lot of work and you are going to get really tired."
(leads me to believe that the teacher let them know just how much work the PTA moms do)
I assured her that I was going to join.....again.
"But mom, it takes a lot of time. Will you still be my mommy even if you join the PTA?"
