I am a mom.
I live in the suburbs. (But I live like two blocks from the city so I am still a city mom. Right?)
I have a kid in school.
But I am not a suburban PTA mom. I am way too cool for that.
Except that I am not.
When Bunny started Junior Kindergarten this year, I was super excited. There were sign up sheets for activities on the table at orientation and I totally signed up for most of them.
Library walk, check. Halloween party, check. Holiday party, check. Field trip, check.
Room mom, check.
That's right I'm a room mom and I love it.
Wednesday was the Halloween party and I was in charge of it. I planned the crafts (making witches and decorating cookies) and the games (spoon races with candy corn and toss the ghost in the witches cauldron). The kids loved it. I loved it.
I loved everything about it. I loved hearing the kids say "Bunny's mom could you help me." I loved the smiles on their faces as they ate the cookies they decorated. I loved hearing the laughter coming from the games.
I am a suburban PTA mom and I am proud of it.
