I am now the Secretary of Roan’s School’s PTA.
Last week I ran the Pie Eating Contest at the Spring Carnival.
The pies were donated by Marie Callendars and were delicious and I wanted to eat them all.
I was wearing the most “Mom” Shoes you can wear. The Sketchers “Shape Ups” I got for free a few years ago. They make you feel like you are walking on clouds, which I needed because I was on my feet all day. On my feet early in the morning when THIS TRUCK arrived at my house for me to fill with things that had been stored in my garage.
My dad happened to be in town and was roped in to help.
So I was glad I had the Sketchers shoes on because they made my legs feel good.
They also make you feel like you have given up on everything else because they are so ugly.
The kids were so excited for the pie eating contest. One kid on the side was being coached by his mom. I looked at them and said, “it’s no big deal… this is just for fun.” That kid ended up winning. I guess it WAS a big deal for him.
I had fun MC’ing the event and making jokes.
At The Carnival there was a lot of entertainment.
We had Pirates, Dancers, Capoiera people
But the best entertainers were Roan’s kindergarten class dancing an ‘80’s medley to ‘80’s hit songs.
It was a family affair. Steve did the food for all the hundreds of people. He was “The Man” Because the food was fricking amazing and there was a line around the block. He is also handsome and strong while cooking.
It was a beautiful setting
The PTA had raised enough money to buy instruments for all the students. Some of them played songs they had written in special music classes the school offers.
It was a community building warm family feeling.
It was a lot of work but a good kind of work where you pull together for a good cause and have that good kind of tired at the end of the day.
But lest you think I have become too much of “That” kind of mom… The kind of mom who is a PTA mom and wears Sketchers… know this…
Soon, I will be performing on stage with THIS man…
Alcide, from True Blood.
He plays a wolf.
So I guess you could say that as much as I love being on the PTA, I’ll never really be “That” mom. Life is too interesting. Wolves and all.
