In just a few days, I'm going to say goodbye to these little smiling faces for the better part of a week.
A week! Part of me is so excited--I'm going to be an Obama delegate to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte--a once in a lifetime experience!
I won't have to change a diaper, wipe a little booty, or get up in the middle of the night because someone is fussing.
I received a really nice card in the mail today, from an old friend and teacher telling me she was so glad that I would be representing our county at this event--and telling me I should keep a journal so someday the kids can read about "Mommy's trip to the convention." And, I will. I've focused this blog on the kids, primarily, and not as much on the Big Man and me. I have it printed every year, and hope that for the kids, they will be able to go back and read the narrative of their lives, and see pictures of so many days, and remember so many things. But they will probably really want to know about what mommy and daddy did too. So, Dani, Tori, and Tommy, Mommy's going to start telling you about the neat things she and Daddy do, as well as telling everyone what adorable little monkeys you all are!
