It could be the jet lag talking, but I feel high. I have been walking around with a huge smile on my face for days now. OH how I loved the Fishful Thinking symposium on Possibilities for Parenting in NY. I feel refreshed and uplifted by the message presented by Dr. Karen Reivich. I want y'all to get an idea of the awesomeness that is this woman. Go to fishfulthinking.com and watch her Optimism Workshop. I PROMISE you, you will be so glad that you did. Let me know what you think...
I am also super impressed with the other women I met this weekend. I have to tell you, the people they picked for the 10 women faculty are fabulous (yea, I know I am including myself in that count, I feel fabulous, so why not...right?) Seriously meeting everyone was awesome. I already felt connected to Tiffany from The Secret is in the Sauce and Cecily from My Chaos My Bliss through blogging, personal email, phone calls and texting. And I gotta tell you those two girls are F-U-N, but there was an instant connection with all the other women too. I didn't want the weekend to end, it was just click, click, click...everything clicked. AND the people from Mr. Youth; Kelly, Kristin and Laura...awesome. I cannot say enough about the beautiful accommodations, the way they took care of us and the organization and time that went into putting together this truly incredible event. OH and the Pepperidge Farm executives totally great too, I had a blast meeting everyone and I can't wait to get to work spreading the word about this fantastic initiative. I have a few fun contests lined up all centered around Fishful Thinking so keep an eye out for those!
I was not my typical Mamarazzi self this weekend and have very few pictures to share. I was WAY too busy soaking up all of the Fishful Thinking Goodness. I really didn't leave the comfy accommodations of the beautiful hotel except for dinner on Saturday night. The few pictures I actually did take are messed up, I think my camera is broken.
In other news. I had planned on spending today in bed (I was soooo tired after the fun weekend and the many miles of travel) but got a phone call at 10am from J's school. She fainted during gym class and fell hard smacking her pretty face on the blacktop. We decided to take her to the Doctor, just to be safe. We still are not sure exactly what happened, but her blood pressure was low and so were her oxygen levels. Her Doctor is chalking it all up to her still getting over a cold and having a heavy cycle. So she has a pretty good shiner and is taking it easy, but it was a scary moment for her and an eventful afternoon for us.
So yep...back into the mama swing of things. How are y'all?
