I read many blogs by moms with many children.
A few weeks back I read this blog where this mom who works from home didn't go to her child's field trip because she 'didn't want to.' I guarantee my mouth dropped open when I read those words.
Are you joking me?! You could, but you didn't?!
It was genuinely shocking to me.
As a working mom you miss out on things here and there and the guilt eats you up.
To think you could and you didn't was so selfish to me.
I am the crazy lady who brought my infant to the farm even though I didn't want to because I thought I 'should' since I was home.
Anyway, a couple weeks later Odelis invited me to go with her to a book signing of Teresa Guidice from Real Housewives of New Jersey.
First off, I like the Real Housewives.
I'd accept if Andy Cohen asked me to become one.
Boy oh boy, would his ratings sky rocket;-)
I really do love meeting celebrities.
(Hello- Sheena Easton, Randy Jackson, Kendra Wilkenson, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Joe McIntrye, Danny Wood and Donnie Wahlberg.)
The one and only issue was that this meeting was during Victoria's last t-ball game.
I decided I'd go to the game and leave early.
Instead at the last minute Mark told me just to go to MOA and skip the game.
Let me tell you.... she didn't care...at all.
What a relief.
Instead I sat on the hard MOA tile and waited #40 in line for 20 minutes (oh yes, she's quite popular;-)
to get this shot:
That's Odelis and me "flipping the table" with Theresa.
In case you're not familiar with this classic scene of reality TV history
In the end I bought a copy of her grilling cookbook, got it signed and got a fabulous picture with the Queen of Reality TV.
For the guilt record....glad I did!
