Thank You For The Gesture Of Good Will. Let Me Just Staple These Baked Goods To My Hips.

I love working for the public schools. For reals. I love my job. I love my kids. I love my co-workers. I love my boss. I love my families.

Those of you who work for schools know how generous parents get around the holiday season.
And you know how good they bake.
And you know how I can't say "NO THANK YOU!!!!!!!"

Thank God I have a son who works in a pizza joint with a bunch of other hungry guys.
They are going to be my salvation during this holiday season.

Last year, I didn't have a salvation. I am currently wearing last season's baked goods. And casseroles. And candy. And eggnog.

Today, the Let-Me-Give-You-Baked-Goods season started.

Here's today's haul.

OK, OK.... So the rolls were a gift and the two braided bread packages are things I bought. But it was to help a child!!

I really appreciate parents' generosity. I was never that considerate or giving when my kids were in school.

But this year, on this day that the goodies started rolling in, I am making a public commitment to give mine to other people. In the holiday spirit, of course.

Tyler and Dex won't mind if I just sit here and stare at them while they eat these rolls, will they?

There are some things that I said "no, thank you" to today. There was banana bread (THAT I LOVE!) in the front office. And there was a crock pot full of cornbread casserole (THAT I LOVE!) in the bookkeeper's office.

I said 'no' to both.

Yay, me!

The Baked-Goods-Regifting-Queen

  1. I have been re-gifting baked goods, boxes of chocolate AND scented bath products nonstop every holiday season since I've worked at Mountain School.I have even re-gifted bouquets of flowers to which I am violently allergic. I guess my point is that the role of Baked-Goods-Regifting-Queen has already been taken, Jenn. But maybe you can be the Baked-Goods-Regifting-Queen if I can be the Scented-Bath-Products-Regifting-Queen. We should talk. ;)
