Come back to school this Thanksgiving with Once Upon a Thanksgiving!

In celebration of my new PTA Mom trilogy, 
let's play a Jeff Foxworthy-esque game:
You Might Be A PTA Mom if...

Here are a few to get you started...

10. ...when you appear in the teacher's workroom all the teachers rush over to see what you brought them to eat. ~Ellen Too

9. know the location of every public washroom in town—field trips help that along. ~Kaelee

8.'ve dressed up in a grass skirt, aloha shirt, and carried around a pink, plastic, blowup dolphin as volunteer reader for the annual Scholastic book fair . . . in a snowstorm. ~Shelley

7. ... your kids' friends call you "Mom." ~Patti

6. You might be a PTA mom if you can sing "Found a Peanut" in your sleep. ~Jody

5. take every school fundraiser to work and then end up having to carry in 100 tubs of frozen cookie dough ~Tammy

4.'ve popped so much popcorn to sell on Fridays that when you go to the grocery store later that day, you notice people around you sniffing the air and saying, "Do you smell popcorn?" ~JV

3. ...the students wave in the hall and say, "HI Laminating Lady!" rather than "Mrs. ____" ~Donna

2.'re so busy with PTA stuff that your husband has to dress out of the dryer in the mornings. ~JV

1. ... if you've ever forged another mom's name on a volunteer sheet. ~Ellen 

So add your own You Might Be a PTA Mom if, or share a story about your time as a PTA Mom! 

And Check Out the PTA Mom Trilogy...they're available for Kindle and as a paperback!  Once Upon a Thanksgiving is on sale today! 


PS Get out the popcorn...

Coming in January, available for pre-order,
the final chapter in the PTA Mom Trilogy
Once Upon a Valentine's

You are a new author to me but these books sound amazing.

you might be a PTA mom if you know how to use all the copiers in the school

you might be a PTA mom if you get the good gifts from the teachers at Christmas

you might be a PTA mom if you know each teacher's Vera Bradley pattern

Thank you so much, Eileen! I've been a PTA's a life I know a lot about! LOL As a matter of fact, I planned our school's Feather Party Kids Games for years, so the first book really is a bit autobiographical! (Of course I wasn't single...just to reassure my husband!) LOL

Denise, LOL Those are very good ones! Might I make a guess that you've been a PTA Mom?? LOL
