friday’s five minute fix: endless camp and school forms
January 24th, 2014
Can you believe I signed my twinks up for a summer camp already? And I’m not talking those camps that last 6+ weeks. This is one of those garden-variety camps that every museum, recreation center, arts facility, and little theater hold over the summer … knowing that MOMs like me need to give their kiddos some structured activity!
As fun as camps are, however, there’s one thing that is totally not fun … and that is completing those endless forms. I mean, seriously. As if school forms aren’t bad enough. Camp forms are school forms on steroids — because, of course, it’s not just one camp. It’s two. Or three. Or six. And it’s not just one form. It’s a registration form, a medical form, an emergency contact form, a what-to-do-with-your-kid-in-case-of-nuclear-apocalypse form.
So here’s how I solve … or at least minimize … that little problem. Strategic photo-copying!
Have you started camp sign-ups?
