Howdy! Came back from the show on Wednesday afternoon. Had a fabulous time! Reconnected with so many great people. Really fun to see the show from the other side vs. being tethered to the booth all of the time. Going through photos this weekend and will post more about the show on Monday.
Wanted to share something special that happened while I was gone. I called home one night and Nick shared this story. Nick and Sam took me to the airport bright and early on Saturday morning last week. I was telling Nick that my new business cards had barely arrived and Sam wanted to see one. Sande had designed them for me and they had my photo on them. Sam took it and that was that.
Later that week, Nick went to tuck Sam in and Sam had the card laying next to him on his pillow. He slept with it while I was gone! He also put it in his pocket every day and carried it around with him at school!
Sam's my sweet one. Still mushy and lovey, even in 2nd grade. He's the one that still runs up to me when he sees me at school and gives me a big ole smooch on the lips, regardless of who's around.
So, when she's traveling, what's better than mom not being around? The stand in mom in paper format. You sleep in a twin bed? No problem, mom's card can sleep right next to you. Better yet, she won't steal the covers. Want to take her to school? Slip her right in your pocket and she'll be with you all day. Don't want to eat all of your vegetables for dinner? No worries, the best part about stand in mom - she can't talk!
