Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

I think this is a bit much...

Posted by   + Show Post
My 20 month old goes to MDO three times a week from 8:30a-2:00p. Last week was Teacher Appreciation week. We were asked (by another mom that took it upon herself to oversee) to chip in $20, which I thought was a bit much for 1-2 year olds, but whatever. Yesterday, we got a letter telling us what all it went for. Breakfast all 3 mornings, a dessert bar, lunch each day from a different restaurant, a different dessert each day (in addition to dessert bar), a gift basket from Bed, Bath, and Beyond, a hanging plant, a $25 Target gift card, and a gift certificate from a local spa for a manicure. Does this seem excessive to anyone else?

I think a gift card and maybe another small gift would be more than enough personally.

It seems excessive to me. I think $20 seems like a lot for each parent to chip in, I wouldn't have spent that much.

I wouldn't have a problem with it.  If I gave my 20 and they got all that out of it I would be quite happy actually.  I wish moms around here would do the same.  Then the teachers could get a really great present as opposed to the hundred small useless gifts they get a few times a year.

 Sounds like a lot to me!  Not that teachers shouldn't be appreciated, because they should, but that seems excessive.
