When Good Morning America calls...

you lock your kids in the car
while you stand outside it
in the cold
to take their call :)

But first,
since the kids are home from school for MLK day,
you take them to the aquarium...



When leaving the aquarium I realized I had missed a call and had a voice mail
from Good Morning America.
The kids hopped into the car
and I put on a movie for them,
then stood outside the car to return the call.
Tory Johnson was doing a story and needed a small business perspective.
And they needed me to skype RIGHT NOW.
So I answered lots of questions with her on the phone,
picked up Ryan so he could hang with the kids for a bit,
and skyped with Tory Johnson
(I can always say my very first skype was with GMA!)
and I DESPERATELY wish I had fixed my hair instead of just throwing it up in a messy ponytail,
and worn something besides jeans and a t-shirt,
(I was hangin' with the kids all day!)
and my clip is about 1 second long,
but it was fun,
and it's a start, right?


(thank you to my new friend Cindy Morrison for all of your help and letting me skype at your house!)

After reading your post, I realized I sat right next to your family at the aquarium snack shop yesterday. My daughter pointed out that she owns the same shirt as your daughter. What a sweet family! If I would have known, my favorite jewelry designer was thisclose, I would have said hello! Congratulations on the GMA skype! How fun!
