"Game On Kindergarten Mom"

Ok, Thursday night we went to the kindergarten orientation. Kids in another class room and the parents in their classroom. I had a kindergartner last year so I knew what was going to go on. They have things posted on the board for the parents to sign up for. You take the note and put your name on the back if you want to do them. Things like developing film, bringing certain snacks for certain lessons that they will be learning, or things that they need for projects. One of the tags was for "Scrapbook Mom" I was just staring at it. I want to be scrapbook mom. You don't actually make the scrapbook, you just volunteer in the class and glue their projects in the books. That's it. No stamping, no embellishments, you just glue. Well, I know that I am the best gluier for the job. So I want it. My goal is to get that tag. I'm in the front row so it is mine. It is now 6:30 and the teacher said, you can all go and get your kids and bring them back to the class to do their scavenger hunt. The kids have to find things in the class like the bathroom, their cubbie, where they sit, the calendar and things like that. When the parents go to get their kids, I am going to get that scrapbook mom tag. The teacher is done talking, the parents start to get up. I get up and start to walk to the tag, when out of no where, this one mom dashes right by me and practically runs me over and grabs that scrapbook mom tag off the board and writes her name on it before I even got to the board. I was in shock. What just happened? How did she get there first? Who does she think she is? Why didn't I trip her on her way to the board? All these questions were going through my mind as I was standing there in disbelief. I didn't get scrapbook mom. I ended up signing up for the red snack that they will be having in September when they talk abut the color red. BORING!! Oh well. So here is my plan. I am getting a printer cartridge this weekend and I am going to be printing out templates and patterns like crazy. I am going to show up that scrapbook mom who took my job. I am going to make the cutest things for the class. She is going to be so jealous. I am going to show her who is the crafty mom in the class. So GAME ON KINDERGARTEN MOM....GAME ON!!!! LOL

I used to teach Kinder and boy I wish I had moms that would run over each other to volunteer. Most of the time I was begging for someone to do those things. I'm sure you will be the teacher's favorite!
