Hi, this is sophanne from school, no there's no problem with your kid, I was wondering if you'd like to spend one of your last "kid-free" days running a station for our field day. It will be hot outside and there will be many loud and over-stimulated kids there, what say?
After the first few calls, I realized that most parents like their kids, like seeing them have fun, and are more than happy to be called to help. Some came that I hadn't even called because it's just what parents sometimes do. I was overwhelmed and humbled by their willingness to be helpful. It was great. Go Awesome Parents! You Rock!
After getting everything set up in the morning, my duty was "face painting concierge"- making sure that everyone who wanted to got painted and didn't spend the day waiting in line. What fun it was to watch the joy at the transformations!
