Parenting: Volunteering - a part of parenting

You would think working fulltime as a reporter and being Mom to three boys keeps me busy enough. But for the past several weeks, I've been devoting an hour or two a night to soliciting ads, bookkeeping and laying out the annual Lower Merion Football Team Ad and Program Book. The book is the Football Boosters' biggest fundraiser and money we raise from advertisers is used to pay for practice uniforms, team spaghetti dinners and other things the coaches would like the boys to have, but the school doesn't pay for.
