    I love this. I loved meeting you. And I loved when you showed up at dinner Saturday night, plopped down across from me, and said, “I’m day drunk! AND I’M A MOM!”

    Not that I know anything substantial about raising a kid, but I’m going to give kids credit for being more intuitive than many people think. And as that’s the case, it means E can see right through his mama, and it’s just as important for him to see you shine bright as it is for you.

    Shine on, Kaci. If you do it for you, you’ll be doing it for him.

  6. Other Kaci,

    You’ve touched on so many lessons here that I hope to learn from when my time comes in the next bit. Parenthood is more about adding an additional person to your current life than it is changing your life to cater to that person — you’re right. It can shape your child’s worldview and setting the right tone for that from the beginning is SO important.

    I’ve already told Sarah that within two years, I’m taking our child out with me, much like a couple of other bloggers I’ve seen in Toronto. I won’t disappear. It’s just not in my nature.

    You keep doing you, Kaci, and I hope to see you again 🙂

    Good for you for going to Vegas and doing something for yourself! You’re a working mom, you deserved Vegas AND you deserve a fucking medal! 😀

      Haha thanks Gina! I don’t know about a medal but I’d take a bag of cinnamon bears! 😉

      I don’t think I showed it much but I was SO excited to meet you! Even if you didn’t know who I was at first. 😉

    I’m so, so glad you went this year. It made my heart happy to see you there and I said at least 6 times that you *needed* to be there more than most of us. <3

      I am SO INCREDIBLY freaking glad I went this year. I don’t know about me needing to be there more than anybody else, but I definitely needed it. <3
