This is a tribute to all who have made me who I am--without you I'd be sitting by myself (ahh the quiet) eating my cupcakes (no sharing)!! As great as that sounds for a moment (ok--a couple of hours) I'd much rather be with one of you.
No time for inauguration of this blog or breaking champagne bottles (well...maybe a little vodka later). I am off to the Academy Awards (of literature...in Orono...white linoleum instead of red carpets...plastic bleachers instead of plush seats). Ohh, but the best part-- the "stars"--my little offspring dressed in their best (best t-shirt and sweatshirt qualifies for Henry) placing their nominations for Best Actress--Lyra Belacqua from the Golden Compass and Best Cinematographer Lauren Child of the Charlie and Lola series. They are both proud of their creations and for that I am proud of them. I won't mention the hours of pain they endured listening to me nag at them to "get them done"--but as they know that is part of the definition of "mom" (more on that later).
Stay tuned as I track the "wild ones" and pass along the funny (maybe humiliating) things that make up our days.
