i just registered my son for school (he starts kindergarten this year) and i ran into a group of women who i assume were PTO moms. they were standing in a group in the office discussing the plans for the fall festival. i have been dreaming of being a PTO mom, but i took one look at those women...and i thought they might eat me alive. they looked extremely rich, snobby, and much older than me (26). any PTO moms here? what does it take and how can i get in the loop?Answer Question

If you are that insecure then you will not make a very good pto mom.
It takes nothing but a willingness to work WITH others, a willingness to help out, a little time (as much or as little as you have to give), and a GOOD attitude.
It is the easiest or hardest job you will have depending on what YOU bring to the table
I have been involved in ptos for 14 yrs and the women who ROCK are the ones who are hard workers, creative thinkers, active, optimistic, and GET ALONG WITH OTHERS.
The ones that really ruin the whole pot and give it a bad name are the ones who are cliquish and the ones who are insecure. And it is the insecure ones that cause the MOST issues because they cant just get along they have to worry about every single little issue and is this person going to like me, or is this person better than me, etc.
