Before I write about BlogHer’12 I want to say: My Daughter ROCKS and I am happy to be home

by Leila on August 6, 2012

I left early on Wednesday before the sun came up for the BlogHer conference in NYC.

Since I left I don’t think I really slept.

I got in yesterday. We had In N Out – Because, that is what you do when you live in Los Angeles! I unpacked the only swag I took home: toys for the kids. They were happy. I showered. We put on a movie and I crashed so hard.

The best sleep I ever get is post conference sleep!

Anyway, I was a zombie and on east coast time when I woke up this morning. I was looking over my emails, catching up on twitter/texts/messages and just not wanting to get out of bed.

I heard my ten year old daughter get up… then I smelled coffee brewing.

I went into the kitchen and she beamed at me with her big gorgeous smile and said, “Mommy, I got this. Please go rest.”

She has been making me coffee for many years. She is amazing like that… and admits it has a lot to do with self preservation.

Then I heard a blender.

Her and I always joke about who has the craziest morning hair! She won today!

The kid’s Grandma was staying here when I was gone and NaNa always brings the best gadgets. It’s a smoothie maker that makes individual servings of deliciousness. It’s really easy for my daughter to use. It has helped her a lot with increasing fruit intake to help her digestive issues. She also feels very empowered when she can do things on her own.

Why would I discourage that??

So, for breakfast I got coffee, a smoothie and some baked bacon.


Because my daughter freaking rocks.

And no… you can’t have her 🙂

She does rock!!! I always think you can tell a lot about a parent by how thoughtful their children are. It never happens by accident. You are something else Leila and she’s just a piece of the proof!!! xoxox -LV

If you let me have her, I promise to give her back after a few weeks. OK, a month, but that’s it! She really does rock. Love when children can do nice things for us Moms, especially when we are least expecting it. Glad to see you are safe at home.

What a sweetie for thinking of you! I love the crazy bed hair.

Hope you enjoyed NYC and glad you made it home before the storms and got to enjoy the warm welcome home.

Coffee + smoothie + bacon anything = cure for conference induced Zombie sleep.
Daughter like yours is priceless.

I want one of those single serving blenders!

I agree with Laverne. You can’t take yourself out of that equation. Awesome is contagious. What a sweet girl.
