Woke up Sam with kisses when I arrived home from the Mom Congress last night.
He looked me in the eyes, started to cry a little and asked; “Mommy? Mommy? When are you going to be home?”
It was one of the most vulnerable moments I have ever witnessed in him.
The boys did beautifully thanks to the amazing net of support we have woven over here. I am really beyond words as far as thanks to my village!
Looking forward to sharing with you all about the power packed three days as the delegate from Maine at the first ever Mom Congress in Washington DC. I promise that I will do so when I land a little bit first as the mom from Maine.
Here’s a link to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan’s speech/town hall on the 270 million dollar funding initiative to increase parental involvement in education that he unveiled at the Mom Congress, Monday at Georgetown University. Yours truly enjoyed the honor of being on stage with the other moms for his inspiring, and encouraging speech. His call to hold each other accountable in the next steps that we need to take was a refreshing approach in my eyes.
