I have 3 children, two are in school and one is a Girl Scout. Our family has a lot of fundraisers, and we hit up our friends and family 3 or 4 times a year...and I've decided it sucks.
I love that my daughter is fundraising with her Girl Scout Troop to do amazing things: they use their proceeds to buy shoes and bus passes for homeless children in Long Beach, CA. However, I hate the process, I hate that she is constantly asking for people to buy things from her.
Now my son is in Kindergarten and the school has a fundraiser and so he is asking people to buy things!
When did it become ok to have our children use their cute faces to sell crap?
Note: I didn't sleep last night, and I'm writing this after listening to my children argue about who has sold more stuff - and with no coffee on board yet...I'm a bit pissed and bitter.
