It's Only a Matter of Time

One week before the start of school we get a notice in the mail from Hansel's PTA.
We're great! Get involved! Volunteer! The PTA needs YOU!
Ok. I sign up for the "Hospitality Committee" cuz I can like... bake, and stuff.
(I later find out that it's for the WHOLE SCHOOL so I could be baking for THOUSANDS.)
(Well not really thousands but more than 19 which is the average class size and what I thought I would be baking for.)

Earlier this week was Meet The Teacher night at Hansel's school.
Another form.
Volunteer for your child's class! Get involved! It will make your son/daughter H-A-P-P-Y.
Again, I gave them my John Hancock.
Yes! Please do give my name to the class parent! I'm an involved parent and I love to bake! Weeeeeeee!!!

The same day Cinderella comes home after joining the Drama Club.
Guess what she had with her?
Another Volunteer Sign-up Sheet!
This time, I offered to design and print the program for their upcoming performance.

I can't seem to stop myself.
Help me.

Watch out. Once you volunteer your name is placed on a list of people who actually volunteer and don't just toss the papers. That list is passed around and shared so soon your phone will be ringing off the hook. It'll be "call WSM, she's sooo helpful!"

Dude, this is a polite site, so I'm not gonna use no foul language. But seriously. I would like to be asked to help out with something meaningful. Freaking cupcakes! Freaking cutting out one hundred FALL LEAVES to DECORATE KINDERGARTEN. Eh. Bite me. It's school. They are there to learn. Let me help them learn, PTA peoples. No more cupcakes!
