Every once in a while, I just feel the need to brag… Second Son, nailed it! First Son, wrote it (his poem was chosen for display) and drew it. Little Lady built it (her version of a doll house). Check out the detail!
And me, well, I have something, besides my family, that I’m proud of too. About a month ago, I was contacted by someone who worked for this magazine:
The picture is from a post on the AC Air Show.
Now for the funny part. She wanted to know my full name so that she could give me credit. I gave it to her and asked that she use my blog url, too, which she happily obliged. Then, one night, as I was falling asleep, I got all paranoid about privacy (I know, crazy because I blog) because for the first time my children’s surname would be connected with my blog. The next day, I contacted her, again, and asked her to just credit the blog.
She kindly offered to send me a copy of the magazine when it came out (which also gave me a momentary, omg, did I just give my address to a serial killer) and it came on Friday sans serial killer.
I was so proud to see my picture, but truth be told, disappointed because I couldn’t find the credit. Then, my mom spotted it in the wee corner of the magazine. See that tiny writing in the crease. Ha! I think my privacy would have been safe. Anyway, I still think it’s pretty cool!
