Guess What? I got to meet Ms. Shayna and her lovely mother, Beth today. I met these guys over a year ago online and we've stayed in touch cyberwise ever since. Beth convinced me that the Ergo is the bomb...she even told me about it while she was in China. Yes, she is that kind of person - kind, funny, downtoearth, generous and a terrific MOM.
See for yourself...
She can cut chicken, butter bread, deliver beverages, draw smiley faces, fetch binky and chat with me all at one time. On precious few hours of sleep and in a very small restaurant booth. My head spins.
Spending the afternoon with these two was wonderful. Meeting up with families that have been to China and back - especially ones that we've followed online - makes our adoption feel a weensy bit more tangible for me. It also is energizing and sweet. (Like the Iced Americano I needed after dropping them off**).
Have a great visit, you two! Thanks for the lunchdate! XO
**Note to self: Must get back to exercise regime in order to prevent early demise resulting from unconditioned back, long hibernated core strength and marginal attention span before highly energized child enters the scene.
