Today was Sean’s Halloween/Fall Festival party at his school. I was in charge of supplying the party napkins and would like to report that I did not screw that up. Just to make sure that I would not mess up my assignment, I bought four times as many napkins as was reasonably required and then I sent them a week before the party. Which was also when I sent Sean to school dressed as a pirate. A week before the party.
In Sean’s permanent file at the school, there is probably a note saying that Sean’s mother should never be trusted with anything more complicated than party napkins. The up side to being fairly incompetent is that no one will ask me to be in charge of anything other than party napkins.
Some of the parents dressed up in costume which made me think “Yay for you, you costume wearing moms who have costumes!” I went as a mom who just came from the gym and needed a shower and didn’t know where to stand.
I did get a chance to visit with Sean’s teacher who told me that Sean informs her that I give him money every time he goes poo poo on the potty and that he is saving up for a puppy, which is not true. I am making him save up for college, not a puppy.
At first I was concerned that he was telling tall tales, but then I decided that it probably works in my favor as it will make the other things he tells the teacher about me less believable.

Clearly, the success of the party is owed to the abundance of the festive party napkins as seen in the photo.
