Jenn - if you can plan and pull off a wedding for 300 -- you must have a bit of detail in you! And if your office has entrusted you with the task of planning the holiday party then they must see some detail in you as well. Purhaps you need to believe in your own abilities for them to fully develope.
See what you're doing with Brady's diet? THAT takes a mind for details! Good luck with your teacher talk.......... I'm sure you'll be able to get her on the same page. Maybe a list of okay foods - and a list of absolutely NOT foods?
