My son’s friend told his mom that I am the queen of the elementary school. —Andrea W.


When I was PTO president, my son told [a student], “My mom is your mom’s boss!” [Now] I'm secretary at our middle school, it’s not as glamorous of a job so we’ll see what he says. —Misty F.


My girls say, “My mom is totally awesome! She gets to count money, makes important decisions, and knows everything!” I just laugh and give them a wink! —Karina C.
