Okay, so I'm in a bit of a pickle. And I need help ASAP. Here is the email I received from Harrison's teacher about a week and a half ago.
We will celebrate Valentine's Day as a class on Thursday, February 11th. Please let me know if you'd like to do a craft with the kids or bring some treats for the class.
I decided that I would not be bringing treats as kids. I don't have time to bake (nor do I make time to do it) and not every kid loves fruit like my award-winning toddler. I did decide that I probably could help with a craft. That should be fun. I've seen the crafts Harrison brings home and maybe I can help him make his a little more...well, wall-worthy.
Dear Miss Crissy
I would love to do a craft with the kids on Thursday. Just let me know what time you'd like for me to be there.
On Saturday night, I received an e-mail from the teacher:
Thanks so much for volunteering to lead a craft for the class. I'm sure the kids are going to love whatever you are going to do. Is 11:15 am enough time to be able to complete it?
My thought process:
Ugh...what? I am going to lead the craft.? I thought I was signing up to help. In fact, I thought I was just signing up to do one too. Oh gosh, I have to lead 10 kids in a craft that are all under the age of two? Immediately, I say to Adam, "I have to call Harrison's teacher and tell her there has been a mistake. I am not gifted in this area, and well, what the heck am I going to do." Adam says, "C'mon...it isn't that big of a deal. You should do this." "What? Why should I do this." Anyway, he went on to explain that it would be good for me. Whatever that means. So, I didn't back out. I was going to back-out this morning until the teacher sent out an email to the whole class telling the parents that I so graciously volunteered to do a craft. My response to the email, "What kind of adhesive do you use in class?" I figured that made it sound like I knew what I was talking about. Now...what the heck do I do? Any suggestions are welcomed!
