OK, perhaps it's because I've had an extra glass of wine tonight, or perhaps it's because I am tired of getting these types of messages from my kids' school, but why do people HATE WORKING PARENTS???
Tonight I start reading through the materials that were sent home with my kids and I see this note from the Parent's Group from our school. It goes on to say how they need volunteers for this and that, and bemoan the fact that participation in low, and the Parent's group meets at 9 am in the morning during the week without exception. As a working parent, there is no way I can attend. That tells me that either they don't need my help, or they don't want it.
In the past I have sewn 20 Muchnkin vests for the school play, and quilted a quilt that was made from artwork from the children for a fundraiser. My husband is the school's volunteer basketball coach! We have demonstrated that we are more than willing to work for the benefit of the school. I do charity work for my guild all the time. I can make time to help, but at present, I am not invovled in anything....because they choose to exclude me. They make me feel judged for not being a stay at home Mom, ready to go to their early weekday meetings. They can kiss my.....
Thus endeth the rant.
