What have I gotten myself into?

Last year when Brianna started Kindergarten I like every parent gave my 5 dollars and joined the PTA. Little did I know that half the current PTA presidency had children in Brianna's class. I volunteered in Bri's class a lot and a few times helped out the PTA with some things. At the end of the year I was approached by the new president and asked if I was interested in being the Birthday Mom. I said yes. At the training breakfast I was asked to do citizen of the month, and some how also ended up on the reflections committee. Now I am all for supporting my kid and the school but it seems to me that it is always the same 20 or so moms who do everything in the PTA. Last year I viewed the PTA moms as being a little clique-y. But I think that they are a clique that will accept any one who is willing to help with open arms. I feel a bit overwhelmed some times with my duties. Birthday mom takes a lot of time. But I love that the kids all know me and like me because I give them candy and I'm getting to know many of the teachers too which is fun. I've also met some great Moms who are becoming my friends. But, Bri is off track right now and I'm still in school once a week. So watch out for those PTA ladies once they get you they keep you busy.

Well I am proud of you for getting out there and doing something. I still haven't worked up the courage to really get involved. Maybe someday.
