My little dream cottage!
I'm sorry my posting has been so infrequent but between the bathroom remodeling, spring class parties and Easter, I haven't had much time. But I wanted to pop in to say hi and I thought I'd share a funny story with you. Because of a few people having to go back to work, I am the only room parent in my son's kindergarten class so I went from being a helper, to being the lone room mom. This is fine, I have been a room parent for Jake for the past four years so I know the drill. So needless to say, I do a lot of running around the day before the parties, getting supplies, planning crafts, etc . So yesterday Alex and I spent some time filling 140 plastic eggs with candy, slicing fruit and veggies and shopping for craft supplies. One of the kids comes up to me in the class and asks me why am I the the only room parent. I told him that I stayed home so I would be able to help out and do things at the school. He then told me I needed to get a job. After I told him that it wasn't polite to say things like that, a little girl said "So you have nothing to do and you just sit at home and watch tv?. " Hahahahahahahahahah! So basically, my husband and I made this huge financial sacrifice and stop working so that I would be able to do these things for my kids only to find out that they really just think I'm a big loser, lol. Just kidding, my kids always thank me for being a room parent and I know THEY appreciate it. When we were walking out Alex said thank you and that he had a lot of fun. That's why I do it! The teacher told me that one time a Dad came in to help and one of the kids asked him why he wasn't home drinking beer and watching Nascar. I guess we know what his dad does;)
The above picture is the cottage that I dream about. It's just for me, only one room. No phone, no computer, miles and miles from civilization. Only to be used on special occasions:)
Look at that yummy roof!!
Have a nice day!
