Yes, that's me up there in that pic. Looking at the photo, it seems so unreal. Those who know me in person, please pick your jaws up off the floor. Those who don't, let's just say that blogging greatly appeals to my very introverted nature. That being said, being in front of the camera *gulp* speaking instead of typing was well out of my comfort zone. However, it was for a really great cause, and I'm all about helping parents. I also hoped that stepping out of my comfort zone was a fabulous teachable moment, showing my daughter that I'm willing to take risks and not always do things the "easy way."
I can't say much about the project, as it's not yet public. But I can share that it is called Kids In The House, and is scheduled for it's big launch in June 2012. I promise to let you all know when that happens. It's all very exciting.

Since I didn't have anyone to watch Boo for me, we made a family day trip out of it. The studio wasn't too far from where I used to live in Santa Monica, so Daddy and Boo took the day off of school and we all drove up to my old stomping grounds together.

Daddy and Boo played at a park up the street while I was doing my thing. When I finished, we met up with one of my oldest and best friends for lunch at Giggles 'n' Hugs, a cute little place that not only has a play area, but staff specifically for interacting with the kids and facilitating activities. Boo was excited to get a painted tattoo.
It's so funny how this blog is becoming more and more a team effort. Boo was very specific that the photo above be used in this post. In fact, her exact words were, "Take a picture of this so that when we blog about today everyone will see how cool this place was." Notice the "we" in that sentence.
I'm wondering when I'm going to have to get Boo her own domain name.
Alright. I admit it. I've already registered one for her. But she's going to have to wait a while for her own blog!
Yes, Boo is already a super computer geek, just like me. And, like me, she's also not a fan of being the center of attention, which often makes her timid in new situations. However, with as social as her Daddy is, I'm hoping that will balance her out a bit as she gets older. Again, I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone to do this project. I hope she sees that as a positive and will feel empowered to take more risks, herself, as new experiences in life come her way.
