*I was compensated for my inclusion in the Clever Girl’s Stanford Children’s Health Extraordinary Campaign this past summer.*
Since my past worst mom blunder for Emma’s Kindergarten orientation back at the end of the summer, I have made sure to try my best to make this up to her and then some, because to me she is extraordinary and totally worth it.
I have pretty much volunteered for whatever I can, including becoming one of the two class moms liaisons to her teacher and the other parents, as well as volunteering for this past Friday night’s after school evening Halloween party with Emma aka Elsa (she was one of 16 kids dressed as Elsa and only one Anna from Frozen – Frozen Halloween at its finest).
Also, for the first Kindergarten Class trip that finds the kindergarten classes (Emma’s included) to a local farm here to go pumpkin picking, hayrides and so much more today, I am attending as a parent volunteer, too.
The trip was supposed to take place last Thursday, but a few days straight of rain postponed it until today. Thankful to not have to do pumpkin picking in torrential, soaking downpours, after have reading Kelly of Just Typikel’s Guest Post on Coach Daddy only the day before, where she described the Corn Maze from Hell that described a class trip gone wrong from heavy rains (promise Eli, I will share my experience just for you). If you didn’t read this, I suggest you do. I had chilling nightmares just thinking of the frightful possibilities if our trip wasn’t postponed.
Plus, being co-class mom entitles me to help plan and run the in class Halloween party this Friday.
Now, you know why I have been so busy this past fall, between running a blog, design/virtual assistant site and being class mom, I have not had a moment to think.
And believe me when I say my social calendar this week alone is definitely full (including finally getting to see Jim Gaffigan on Thursday night with Kevin) and if I am MIA today, because of pumpkin picking chaperoning, please forgive me, but I definitely I am excited to share this experience with ‘extraordinary’ Emma, her teacher and classmates.
By the way, I am definitely prejudice, thinking Emma (and Lily, of course, too) is an extraordinary kid.
In that end, I thought today as I was doing a bit of mom gushing that would even make Bevvie Goldberg of The Goldberg’s fame blush, I would finally share a video I put together of Emma this past summer for Clever Girl’s Campaign for Stanford Children’s Extraordinary campaign.

And while I am out for this trip today, Kevin will be getting Lily back and forth to pre-school and spending the day with her.
Most know here Lily is just Lily, but still I am wondering if Lily will get into her own brand of mischief to rival this Facebook image that I shared on my Facebook page last week.Yup, can so see Lily getting herself into this or worse today…what do you think???
Still Happy Monday all and hoping Emma and I have a great day, as well as Lily not getting herself into too much trouble either!
