Are you a school ‘stunt’ mum?
Evel Knievel Jr eat your heart out.
I thought I was a pretty ok/average/kinda goodish stunt school mum.
I mean aside from the whole:
– late school drop offs
– late school pick ups
– my poor braiding skills
– failure to return school notes
– taking holidays during school time
– P&C avoidance tactics
– Absence from school fetes
At least that’s what I thought until today.
I just found out that one of my school mum friends bought 8 school staff members (teachers and the front office ladies) Easter egg tea towels.
For reals. No jokes. It’s not even the start of a joke.
WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL IS THAT ABOUT? (Pardon me if you’re a Catholic School teacher from my kids’ school).
I understand the whole “It’s Christmas, you’ve had my kids annoy the crap out of you for a year and this is me apologising” gift, but EASTER as well?
I didn’t even realise that was a thing. Am I the only loser mum who doesn’t buy gifts for teachers at Easter?
I’m fairly sure I’m not alone, but I kinda feel like my girlfriend now belongs in the Gifted and Talented Stunt Mum category – a category I will surely never fit into. Damn it. I need to work on becoming one of these Stunt Mums.
Maybe I need to search for someone who looks like me, cares more than me so she can become my Stunt Mum double.
Any takers? I’m serious.
All I can say is that I’m lucky our school doesn’t do Easter hat parades, cause no doubt I’d be pretty crap at that too.
