Class Mum

Why oh why did I volunteer to be my daughter's class mum ??? but to think again, I did not volunteer, instead one of the mother came up to me and ask if I would like to be one, but why did I agree ??? sigh !!! I know.... it's not like I've been elected to be the President or Prime Minister, to be venting, just that I'm afraid I'm not capable enough to handle the responsibility.

As a class mum, I have to coordinate helpers for the teacher whenever there are any activities in the school i.e. International day, Science day, Sports day, What I want to be when I grow up day (???) to name a few, and also for the school trips. Sometimes, I will have to contact parents to organise out of school social activities such as coffee morning or parents nite out. And talking about social activities especially among the foreigners, is also another dilemma for me. I don't really mix around and mingle with other parents except when is necessary and when I pick up my misses from school, I will just stand and wait at one corner without anyone noticing me, except my misses, of course, and within few minutes we're already in the car heading home. Don't get me wrong, I am not an introvert, I think it's all rounded up to a few reasons or perhaps I am just too shy. But you can't blame me, I'm an Asian, remember !!!

I guess, now is the time for me to change for the benefit of my misses. I need to show them some good example in being more of an extrovert and be more confident. Meanwhile, let's just hope that there'll be no complains whatsoever from the teacher and other parents about me as their class mum.
