So when I was a working mom, I missed a lot of big sis' events at school like recitals and such. Of course, I was bogged down by an immense sense of mother's guilt.
Now that I'm a sahm it seems like I'm overcompensating for all that guilt: I'm volunteering for everything! And at this time of year, I think I may have gone overboard. Big sis is in elementary school, the twins in another preschool, they all attend a language school on Saturdays and Sunday School too. So that's four schools of commitees, outings, projects, events, etc. And throw in there extracurricular activities with their associated duties and that makes for a busy mom! But I figure that's my job now, getting involved in their lives as much as I can. So here I am utilizing my two university degrees to make a Christmas tree pinata amongst other things. But ya know what? I had SO much fun making that pinata and am quite proud of it and if someone told me two decades ago that that's what I'd be doing with my life, I would have sent them to the looney bin!
Gotta go make a pasta salad for a school potluck :)
