Just Say No

Yesterday my mother was amazed that I'd finally learned to say no.

Ya see, one of the PTO mothers is in charge of the annual spaghetti dinner, and I'd told her I'd donate Saran Wrap, a couple desserts, and my time to help get the desserts individually wrapped. She wanted to know if I was going to help with the dinner itself, or even come and eat.

I said NO, that since it was parent-teacher conferences I'd prefer to just have my conference and get out, that Husband would have his Bible study that night, I wouldn't have childcare, blah blah blah.

The mother got indignant at this, telling me to just "bring the kids." I said:

"Look, I said I'd donate Saran Wrap, desserts, and some of my time. Take what you get and be happy!"

(I mean, honestly, my kids don't want to spend all that extra time at school!)

When I told my mom this, she cheered for me that I'd finally learned to say no to those mothers.

What I wanted to tell that mother was that she should shove her spaghetti dinner up her bum!

Which brings me to my class reunion...but I'll post about that later.
