Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - June 4, 1966, Bennington, Vermont W Oman n world mothers first chaperones second just poking around by Jean Wassick one of the Best things about being a non working Mother is that it leaves her free to be volunteered by her offspring for Little school affairs like trips and parties and picnics and stuff. Of course i m not admitting in Public print that i never work. You know perfectly Well what i mean. Non working referred to a full time Job outside the Home. The kind that pays Money volunteering is the easiest part. She does no to even have to think about it. That is what children Are for. A my Mommy will go.
