Feeling like a 360..

Well I did my first volunteer activity at my daughters school. Never did before because didn't want teachers/other parents smelling the booze on my breath. Besides....hanging around all those sober and involved moms made me feel like the worst mom (course it was their fault, not the 6-8 glasses of wine I was consuming).

Now that I am sober, I can't wait to do more of this. All the kids went running up to thei moms so excited they were there....INCLUDING my daughter to me:-). Felt so good to see here so proud and happy I was there!! Think I am actually going to join the PTO next year! Lol....never thought I would see the day:-)

It is nice to not have to worry whether we can or cannot do something that involves our children that is dependent upon how much alcohol we had consumed. That is how I feel when my son is making plans when I may have to provide transportation. I'm a sober driver at any time on any day

Nothing beats the huge smile, the love, happiness and pride in a child's twinkling eyes when they look at us.

Great job!
