MHowell Posted November 10, 2011 Share Posted November 10, 2011 I am the worst at delegating. I always go back to the saying "if you want it done right, do it yourself." Well, I don't know if anyone but me says it. Anyway, I am PTSA president at K's school. I am there everyday. I am also her Room Mom. I love the school she attends but strongly believe it works for her because I am there a lot. I have been REALLY over whelmed lately, so K's teacher asked another Mom to take over the Thanksgiving party for me to lighten my load. I admit, I was initially hurt, because I thought maybe she didn't like my Halloween party. But, I understand her heart was in the right place and it wasn't because I did something wrong. The new parent called and asked if I could make the flyer for her since she didn't know how. I said okay, thinking I would leave the requests the same from Halloween and it would only take a couple minutes. She finally got back to me tonight and her list is crazy. She is asking for brand specific items from a store 20 minutes away. I tried explaining why this might be problematic, especially since it is a store that requires a membership but she wasn't budging. I made the flyer as she asked, which took more than a couple minutes of course.... but now I wish I had control over this party. I menu isn't themed for Thanksgiving at all. :/ What's the point of a Thanksgiving party that isn't Thanksgiving-ish? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
