Friends, the one aspect of parenting that I have been dreading as finally arrived.
The dreaded school fundraiser.
Last week when I picked up Foxy I was handed an envelope. I looked inside and saw the familiar form and catalog. “We” are selling cookie dough and ready to bake brownies. I saw “we” cause I ain’t selling sh!t. I hate that stuff. I would rather just donate an additional 50-100 dollars each year than have to try to peddle my wares to various family, friends and coworkers.
When I told her teachers that I wouldn’t be selling anything they looked so disappointed. “But it’s for new computers for each classroom,” they cried. Crap. The guilt trip goes along with the sales pitch I suppose.
I know you are all wondering why in the world is a daycare selling anything. Well, Foxy goes to a school not just a child care center. So we are included in all things that a normal school would be doing. This also includes uniforms in a couple of years and I am so looking forward to that!
So, if you are reading this, and you have a hankering for a vat of cookie dough, holla at your girl. Foxy thanks you for your support!
How do you handle school fundraisers? Do you participate?
