No Seriously, What WAS I Thinking?

Last night I conducted my first meeting as PTO president for my children's school.



Today I am seriously contemplating stapling my head to the floor.



Any suggestions?

Maybe it's all a bad dream...I'm sure you didn't REALLY volunteer for that position in the first place you crazy lady.

In all seriousness, I'm impressed that you took the leap to take on this mammoth position. I have no doubt your kids and all the kids at that school will benefit greatly by having you leading the PTO. You will be great!

I love how you were willing to step up when no one else wanted to. It shows what a great person you are. I think PTO will be great this year. It's lots of work right now but then I think it will get better because we are going to get people to support/join PTO this year.

Good luck. I have access to an electric stapler if that helps...

Heather cracks me up!

Seriously Karen, you can do this. Yeah, there will be times that are gonna suck, but it will all work out. And yes, I will be more supportive this year. If not, you can staple MY head to the floor!

You are so good, you will sale through this. Promise. People love you Karen and you have a great way of working with them. Delegate delegate. That is what I say NEW momma. You deserve any kind of help possible.

Good luck with that. Its only one more thing to do, and really, if you volunteered for it you must have lots of spare time on your hands, I mean, its not like you have a new baby or anything... Oh wait... you do! Or any other kids at home to take care of... oh, but you do! You crazy person! Have fun with it! and DELEGATE!!!

I was feeling way overwhelmed that I was elected PTO treasurer, until I read this. I understand the feeling. If anyone can do this, it's you.

I think you will be so awesome. I went to one meeting at the end of last year after I stopped working and there was like no one there and everyone was like who are you. I am making it a goal to attend more meetings this year and volunteer more. You can hold me to it and call me if my name is not on a list!!

Good luck, I'm sure you're going to do an awesome job. Hopefully you will have some good people helping and willing to volunteer their time as well.
