If my kids went to school I would not go to their lunches. I think I would have died of embarrassment if my mom did that to me when I was a kid.

|Also curious if it adds at all to the pecking order amongst parents? Is it implied that one is a "better" mom if one shows up for lunch on a regular basis? Do other moms take note of who shows up and when? (My reading on MDC indicates yes!) Does it get competitive at your school? Do you feel differently about your child's peers and there parents based on what you see at lunch?|
Sure, there are some moms (and dads) who volunteer at the school all the time. I really don't think that they are in a race to be the best mom though. Most of the moms who I know that volunteer often at the school feel lucky to be in the position where they can help out and want to give back by helping out. I try to not place judgement on others regarding volunteering at school because who am I to presume to know what is going on in someone else's life and schedule. .
