I Must Have Lost My Mind

So.

Today while I was volunteering at the school HB1's teacher approached me about doing the party for the class NEXT FRIDAY.

If you don't know what I said, then you must be new around here.

8 days to plan a party for 8 and 9 year olds.

The room mom is going out of town on business next Friday and can't do it.

Are you kidding me?

What have I done?

I twittered last night about finding a cheap/easy/fast craft, and I'll talk to the teacher in the morning and finalize plans, and send out a letter to the parents for the final last things that we need. It will be fine, I know.

But, really? What was I thinking?

Get thee to Oriental Traders! Tons of crafts. Then send out an e-mail requesting for $5 a kid to cover the cost. At the sametime send out a list of stuff needed (drinks, cupcakes etc) and let the HELP pour IN. Bring some music and let the kids have fun.

I plan 10 class parties a year (room mom X2) and it can actually BE FUN. Trust me! Get in touch if you need help!
