So I am enjoying the kindergarten run of K1.
But I hate the never ending fundraising . So far (and it’s only a month), we have had Terry Fox Run (an excellent cause don’t get me wrong), dress down day ($1.00 where the kids do not need to wear their uniform), Magazine sales, scholastic book orders (my downfall and the Husband had to put a budget, if I had my way we would have $100’s in books), Food bank donation (again another worthy cause), Bake sale (this Friday). Where does it end? This is just school, this does not take into account the extra-activities K1 is in (Girl Guide Cookies anyone?).
I get it, schools need $$ to run. But where does it end? I have already exhausted my friends and family and its only October!
Every year it is the same, facebook explodes with parents selling on behalf of their kids school, dance, sports, etc. Never ends.
So I apologize for the Facebook posts asking to buy, really don’t feel bad if you don’t purchase, I won’t be offended unless it is the Mint Girl Guide Cookies. Those are the best and everyone should buy them because they are amazing! Seriously, I could eat a box in one sitting (just joking people, it was 1/2 a box and then an hour later I finished them off)!
But if you decide to support my kids, thanks and if not, thanks for not hating me!
Now, off to make cookies for the bake sale (Mint Girl Guide Cookies are not allowed, I checked)!
Love and peace,
