Went to go to a LCCC (Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce) function last night and I got all dressed up. I had BIG TIME make-up and hair. Greg snapped a few pictures of me and the kidlets. I only remark on this because Adam said that I smelled better than I usually do.......
Then one of the guys who I see at LCCC events said he couldn't remember me dressing like this before.
It's the earrings. I hardly ever wear earrings. Earrings to me means I am completely dressed up. Now THAT is fancy, ain't it?
Seriously, I cruise around in jeans and t-shirts soooo much, it's easy to feel like a MOM all the time. Keeper of the snacks, Reader of bedtime stories. Mediator of child wars and everything that comes with it.
When I am "on the job", I bring with me my motherhood experience. I know how to handle difficult kiddos. I can wait 'em out. Crying babies don't bother me at all. Motherhood has prepared me for business life, I think.
But no matter what, I am a mother first.. Family is the most important thing to me. That is the main reason that I do what I do. I love capturing my own family's memories so I bring that with me to the job.
That and a whole range of very silly faces.......
