Page 8. HERITAGE. Florida Jewish News. May 9. 1980 When did it change? When did your children change from being proud of you to defying your very existence? When my oldest was in kindergarten, I was room mother. I baked cookies. I showed up at all class functions. I cut out valentines, helped plant Mother's Day seedlings in cottage cheese cartons, and was in charge of the PTA Festival. Every time I showed up at school, he pointed to me and proudly said to his classmates in a very loud voice. "'That's my mommy, r' When he was in the seventh grade, he came home from school and I told him that I had gotten a call saying that there was no one who would be room mother. Would I do it again? "What did you tell them?" he screamed with fright. "1 remembered how much you liked it before so of course I said yes." "You better call back and say you won't. The seventh grade has a dance and I won't go if you're there. It isn't fair. I can't go if you're staring at me." I did it. I called and said that I had just accepted an assignment to do a stony about the mating habits of white mice and since that would happen so many times during the year on an unscheduled basis, I couldn't commit myself. His friends all felt the same way. They finally got a room mother. It was the mother of a girl who, for professional reasons (or fear), had kept her maiden name. That way, there was no connection. When he was learning how to drive, it was no better. "Could you slouch down on the seat," he'd beg, "so no one will know that I'm with my mother.'" My daughter is just as bad. She forgot her books the other day and called me to bring them to her. "Don't bring them in the school," she cautioned. "Just drive into the parking lot, beep three longs and three shorts. Then I'll tell my teacher that I have to go to the restroom and I'll come out and get them. Remember, don "t come in. "" I didn't think that my youngest had reached the "Mother, whoP" stage yet, until the other day. ]'hey were having a 50's dance at his school, and after I told him what to wear, I became nostalgic. I re- membered the Lindy, the Jitterbug, the Cha Cha, the Bunny hop. I offered to come and teach them all how to dance, 50's style. He cast a baleful eye on me and said, "'If you do, I'll die." We were all there at school that day, all 50"s mothers, all hiding in the bushes, and peeking in windows. We saw all of our kids in their poodle skirts, neckscarves, greased back hair, pegged pants with white shirts, all dancing. To disco music! m** 00CAMP HERONWOODI Day Camp for X BOYS GIRLS (6-14)!
