Last night was the kick-off party for Mom2.0 Summit. Guys, it’s fancier than I imagined. I couldn’t even get over all of the free cocktails and let me go on the record as saying that the buffet quality was very high. I think my enthusiasm for those things might have been quite strong last night, because one woman said she “loved my Boston energy.” I don’t even know what that means, because I’m pretty sure we Bostonians aren’t known for our energy.
I was referred to as a “puppy” at least once. A few people patted my head. More than one seemed confused as to what I was so giddy about. Did they not see the swag we are getting?? I felt like a seat filler on Oscar night, surrounded by cool celebrities. I was very close to asking for autographs but did manage to stifle that urge.
In my defense this is my first conference of this type (fancy hotels + famous bloggers + unlimited beverages + buffets). They may not have realized just how nice the soap and moisturizer display was in my bathroom, and how I was coming off of the high of discovering that those items are free.
But still, it’s not like I’ve never left my house before, and I think my enthusiasm indicated that typically I’m not exposed to light, air, or other people.
I am going to be a totally cooler cucumber today. Unless they serve burritos at lunch, in which case all bets are off.
[Note: Even though my plan was to wake up really late I’ve been up since 5:30. Here is a wisdom bomb: if you’re traveling away from your child and want to sleep in, stay in your time zone! My body didn’t get the memo about the time change and it’s not cooperating at all.]
