So now I'm the 'organized mom?'
Just back from a trip to Reno and was a bit suprised to hear one mother tell her dd to get scissors from the "organized mom." Four years ago that wouldn't have been me she was referring to, but my, how things have changed.
I can also see this as a problem I haven't dealt with before. Losing all of the items I thought ahead to bring because everyone else is "borrowing" them.
Even for the plane ride, I had to bite my tongue. Traveling with kids, it only made sense to me to bring water and some snacks since were on a total of four planes and peanuts don't cut it. But other moms were off running for the Starbucks and spending a fortune on sandwiches to take on the plane.
Obviously, I would have shared the food if the kids were really hungry, but I was beginning to feel like we were being taken advantage of if I mentioned that I came prepared.
Does anyone else get stuck in the role of "organized mom" and people come to expect you to be the ones to remember the extra pins, thread, scissors, tape, etc.?
