No thanks to me


Tonight we went to a fundraising dinner for the benefit of our preschool. I walked in, took one look around, and realized, with horror, that I was pretty much the only mother who had not volunteered to help out. I was so embarrassed. I am, like, the worst stay-at-home mom ever. I don’t cook, I don’t clean house, I’m socially retarded and I can’t even manage to remember to make it to two or three parent-teacher organization meetings a year. Criminy.
We did at least donate more than the amount they recommended for a family of four, so we aren’t completely worthless. I will try to do better next time!


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Don’t be so hard on yourself! At least you came and supported the school. We all have days when we feel we don’t measure up. Give yourself some credit. I see you as a very smart and talented person and a good Mom.
