Whatever Wednesday -- Becoming a "Room Mom"

I somehow got talked into being the "Room Liaison" for Daisy's class.  That's the Fancy way to say Room Mom.  She is super excited.  I'm trying to be.  :)

I talked to the Teacher last Friday and asked what she needed long term and if there was anthing I could do short term until I can get everything organized with the other parents.  She said she had some lamination to cut out.  I said, "Oh sure...no problem."  Then she showed me the lamination she needed cut.  I almost wet myself.  HOLY SMOKES!

This is what I started with.

This is after an hour and a half with my handy-dandy paper cutter (thank you Costco).

This is what I still have left.  This will take me at least a few hours because each strip has 4-6 little squares and there are over 75.  Yeah me!

Um, whoa! I would bump: "Force other parents to join a committee" to the top of your to-do list!!!

Thank goodness for parent volunteers! Imagine what the teacher would have to do if you parents weren't willing to do it. I know! I got stuck doing it all when I was doing my student teaching!

Yikes!! I'm usually a room parent every year but this year, I'm taking a break. I want to watch the Halloween Parade for once and actually enjoy it (it's her last year of elementary school). I"m sure the teacher really appreciates what you're doing to help!!!

Sorry but I had to laugh when I saw your pile. As a middle school teacher, I never had a room mother but I did have a husband. Many nights he watched tv and cut out stuff for me. I've even taken it with me on road trips, and once even a bus trip.
You're doing a great service.
