More Cub Scout Obsessing

Please login for the full entry.

You know, any sort of volunteer work can get overwhelming, depending on the circumstances surrounding the work.  It seems like parent-related volunteering gets especially harrowing because of the direct emotional investment, but maybe I’m wrong.  It’s one reason why I’ve steered clear of the PTO/PTA scene.  I know I couldn’t cut it, and if anything, I’d be a nervous wreck at the end of each week.

When I opted to take over Sebastian’s Cub Scout Den, I did so knowing that if I didn’t, his group would go without a leader and thus without the fun and educational weekly activities that are supposed to be presented to them.  He’d gone most of his Scouting adventure without a leader and thus had only been able to participate in once-a-month pack meetings to that point (mostly) so I wanted to enrich his experience and give him more of what he was supposed to be getting out of Scouts.  Like parents who decide to homeschool, I wanted more for my kiddo, more that wasn’t being offered.

Since I first agreed to take on the position, it has been a love-hate relationship.  Like anything, I love the fun stuff, hate the hard stuff.  That’s typical, and to be expected, but I didn’t realize just exactly how deep I’d be getting in.  It’s getting really frustrating.
