How Not To Fundraise

Tonight at 8:22 PM we had the kids both sound asleep. The doorbell rang. Kevin and I both fell over ourselves trying to answer it before the kids woke up. A young man popped his head in the door and announced loudly, "I'm from LocalHighSchool Football Team. We're selling these cards that give you discounts at area restaurants."

Of course, that woke up both kids. Kevin announced he was planning to take money from LocalHighSchool Football Team.

At 9:15 PM, Liam was back asleep.

At 9:30, Kieran was still up and I was thinking about calling LocalHighSchool Football Team's coach and inviting him over to rock a baby for a bit.

At 9:44 PM, Kieran was asleep.

At 10:00, the phone rang. It was LocalStateUniversity looking for donations. I was not very polite to the undergrad on the other end of the phone. He did promise, "never, ever to call this late again."

I still need someone to rock the baby back to sleep.
