I'd Come Find You....

We took advantage of kid's having spring break, paired with a free place to stay with some cousins and spent three days in Chicago! We've been "holding out" going for when they were old enough to really appreciate the Shedd Aquarium and I am really glad we did. The kids were magical, patient, adorable and grateful. I LOVED showing them a town that is so near and dear to my heart.

We hit the Aquarium, shopped on Michigan Avenue, had a date with my dear friend Amy and her daughter for shopping and lunch, enjoyed an adult fancy dinner out, AND visited with great, old friends at the Lincoln Park Zoo.

The best moment is an easy one. The four of us left the Aquarium in the rain to hop in a cab over to Michigan Avenue. We were wet and cozied up in the foggy cab, happy to be sitting down and away from the crowds.

Tommy: "Mom? What if I hadn't been born to you?"
Me: "Well, I would have been really sad! I would miss you!"
Lucy: "Well, I would leave my other mom and come find you."
Tommy: "Yeah, I'd come find you, too. No matter where you were."

My Photo

I'm a 39 year old stay-at-home mom. I have a 9 year old daughter and a 7 year old son. I have lived in the big city and in the mountains, but am happy to be back in the Midwest, raising the fam. I enjoy laughing, wine, bad karaoke, US Weekly, running, cemetaries, cheese sticks and short hair-dos. In my previous life, I was class-clown and a wanna-be comedian. In my professional life, I'm a journalism major with 10 years of marketing and PR experience. I dream of being a cast member on Saturday Night Live and working at Disney World as Snow White.
