I’ve had a not so fabulous day today. Some things fell through the cracks that I was certainly hoping would open the door to freelance work. Â But, I know all too well that what is meant to be will be so, moving right along.
I visited my friends at Scholastic Book Fairs today. I need to stop going there without the frog princess in her stroller. Â Why you ask? Because it’s like trick or treating for book lovers! At every office you stop to greet and catch up someone gives you a book (s). So I end up lugging a sometimes-shy frog princess and the additional 30 pounds of books. Â Not that I’m complaining, mind you.
Today I received a fantabulous book that I will be reviewing later on in the week. Â That got me thinking about this song. Â It comes on Nick, Jr. and so, the frog princess is familiar with it. Â She may also know it well because I tend to jump out of wherever I’m at and start singing it to her. Â She has sung along before. Â Tonight, I started singing it to her and she joined in with such expressive gestures that I had to pull out my phone to record it (I wish I had that Sony Bloggie but, you gotta work with what you have, right?).
I choked up at one point in time watching her sing this to me. Â By the way, I cannot sing to save my life! But one of the perks of mamihood is not giving a damn because your kid loves your voice (at least until they realize you really can’t sing but, we’re not there yet).
With that, I realized that this was the third lesson of Bloggy Bootcamp. Â This is what’s important. What it is all about. Â It’s why I stay up late at night trying to figure out how to make my passion (writing) into a career now that I no longer have one in corporate America. It’s what has me digesting vast amounts of information and reaching out to all sorts of people trying to gleam a little knowledge as to how to “do this” for a living. Â At the end of the day, this is what it is all about.
And after a not so great day, my frog princess once again reminded me: Don’t worry, about a thing. Cuz, every little thing, is gonna be alright. Â And my heart fell in love with her a little bit more.
