I Went. I Spoke. I Stayed Dry.
Thank you for your concerns over my bladder continence. I haven’t had so many people ask if I wet myself, since 1981. I’m pleased to report that I stayed dry through the entire Day at the Capitol event. (I wore dark dress pants just in case.)
In all seriousness, thank you for your prayers and encouragement. It went incredibly well and it was more low-key than I expected. I remained calm during my talk, and the boys did A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! (Thanks in part to the March of Dimes purple boxing glove key chains as a distracter.) They stood up there with us the entire time. I choked up a few times reading my speech because it hit me once again that we are living a life with four miracles!
It was an awesome experience to have their faces represent the successful outcomes that are a result of the March of Dimes diligent efforts and research. In fact, we have been chosen as a March of Dimes Ambassador Family for 2010! It was a great help and support to have my parents there as well.
We took a few pictures inside…they really wanted to get some photos with us outside on the steps of the Capitol, but it was a balmy 12 degrees and we decided to pass.
In other undergarment news…I selected a winner for the Yummie Tummie Giveaway and Krystyn is the winner of the $100 Gift Card! Krystyn blogs at Really, Are You Serious? And I am TOTALLY SERIOUS, Krystyn, you are going to LOVE your new tank(s)! Thanks to all of you who left comments…I sure wish I had a tank for each of you and your little “muffins”!
Stick around, there’s lots of blogging material ahead!
