I’m the first to admit that I have to monitor my narcissism on a regular basis. It’s tough to find that balance of promoting/advertising my business and making sure that I’m not always talking about myself to people who aren’t really interested in my company. Sorta difficult to do with a blog since it is, in essence, a vehicle to talk about MY life. But you’ve read this far, so maybe you’re a little bit interested in what I do.
Well, today I discovered how to stay grounded. Share something that you think is cool with your kids.
A couple of fun little things happened today and I couldn’t share them with my husband since he is away on a kayak trip, out of cell range. After my little guys got off the bus and into the van after school today, I decided I would share my fun news with them. Here’s how it went down:
Me: “So guys, a couple of neat things happened today.”
Kids: “Really? What?”
Me: “Well, first, remember that contest I entered and I made the top 100? They are featuring my contest entry on their website today. So anyone in the whole world who looks at that website will see my photo and a link to my website.”
Kids: “Uh huh.”
Me: “And the other thing is that I met this guy today who used to be a producer on a really popular tv show in the 1990’s. He’s planning to make these special cushions and wants me to make a few for the tv commercials that they’re shooting next week. What do you think of that?”
Owen: “Mom? I know sign language.”
Tate (a bit more on track): “Do we still have the kind of tv they used in the 1900’s?”
Anyway, I did meet a big shot television producer today and I will be working with him and I think it’s cool. And since this isn’t my normal sort of post, I’ll end it with some cute kid pics. They may be outgrowing their britches but they certainly won’t let me get too big for mine ; )
