To ensure the tradition of Mommy Niri’s Friday 5 continues, I am providing this week’s dose from the windy city Chicago. You would already know what I am doing here if you have been following my blog, but just incase you are new (welcome) I am attending the BlogHer conference in Chicago. There are many things I will be getting up to: makeovers, massages, manicures and oh yeah attending the actual conference, but a few things I won’t be doing. Here they are:

I won’t be saying “Just one more bite honey and you can have that candy bar” (yeah, I bribe so there). But what a relief not to have to beg my kids to eat!

I won’t be reheating my chai! The microwave has been my best buddy these past 4 years and I am glad to see our relationship take a break. Oh, I am sure we will take off where I left off when I return (and hopefully there are no hard feelings as I would hate to see it go kaput on me), but it will be nice to be served rather than to serve for a change.

I won’t be subjected to any bouts of Dora, Super Why, CUrious George, Caillou or Sid The Science Kid.
No siree, I won’t even have to deal with the whining that fills are the gaps in between. Ahhh, With over 2000 women (bloggers) chattering while being pampered makes forĀ  wonderful listening.

I won’t be interrupted during my shower with some catastrophe that needed that precise moment that I turn the water on to erupt.
Somehow my rule to the kids that “Unless you see blood don’t call me” never works.

I won’t be needed to kiss a booboo all better and be a supermom.
As much as I am annoyed to be called to service a gazillion times, the look on my children’s face when I remove the cares of the world or some imaginary monster makes me feel like I have a purpose in this world.

This hase been my first time away from home (unless you count the one night with me giving birth to my 2nd baby) so I am glad to have strength and support of all, especially my sweetheart husband holding the fort back home. So honey here is a special message for you “Get you chai out the microwave and enjoy it or you just may have to reheat it… again! Love you!”

    I wish I could have been there with you, since I’m right up 294 from Chicago.

    It’s wonderful that you were able to make the great escape, and that your hubby was able to hold down the fort while you were gone.
