  1. Cassandra...I think I got exhausted reading your post! HA HA!!! Your children and their schools (and all the others mentioned) are lucky to have you! With all those numbers, it sounds like a lot of work : )

  2. Hilarious. You need to hire help to do all that stuff for you. Except eating the candy. That's a mandatory mom job.


I love hearing from you! :)
