  • I did a lot more when I wasn't a mommy. I used to volunteer at Planned Parenthood. Now I am working on becoming a La Leche League leader, and I do a lot of lactation help on a volunteer basis.

  • Yes. At school, in church, local childrens hospital that was so good to my child and for the diabetes foundation.

  • Yes, I volunteer with my state parks, helping with whatever they need - parking for events, ticket sales, clean-up, etc. I feel like I grew up camping in my state parks so they mean the world to me and I want to make sure that they are still functioning for generations to come.

  • Yes, but only because I believe that the things I do need to be done, and I'm good at them...

    My favorite author has a character find a problem and then say: 'someone should do something' and then she immediately thinks 'and the sum total of people available is me...' and then he quips 'it's amazing how many people say 'someone should do something' and immediately remove themselves from the pool of 'someones'...

  • I volunteer a lot. At my kids' school, at church, with Scouts, and with other Navy families - in various ways with each of these areas. I've also volunteered with girls who have been sexually abused and in other areas as well.

    My dh teases me that since I stopped working 17 yrs ago (when we had our oldest), that I didn't become a SAHM, instead, I became a professional volunteer. But, since most of my volunteering has been with our kids stuff, church, or with other Navy families, he's good with it :-)

  • Yes - at my sons' school, our parish, and with the cub scouts.

  • used to, but it was all so unorganized I lost interest. Plus I totally got blown off when I offered suggestions, which I found offensive since we were there to make things better for everyone involved.
