treat bags

a few weeks ago,
i hopped on my high horse.
dug my heels in,
and decided,
NO treat bags.

not going to do it.
you can't make me.
you can't make me feel guilty either.
i'm not having it.

and now, one hour before
the elementary school
holiday party,
i'm feeling like a schmoe.
a schmuck.
a schmoo.

damn it.

what is this crazy treat bag thing? My kid has been in her Catholic school for easter, end of year and now christmas. she comes home with more crap than I know what to do with. She asked if we could send in treat bags this year. I replied, "is it your birthday party?" (I'm mean.)We can barely afford what we are giving those we love much less 31 bags of dollar store toys and MORE candy!!
Seriously, be strong. Resist. There are many moms out there who appreciate it.
Whew! Apparently I have a soap box too.:)
