It was a busy weekend for us with all the birthday celebrations and Father’s Day. But I took the day off from my real life last Friday to go help out at the CKU convention in Anaheim (scrapbooking event).
There was no way I was going to be able to actually attend the entire thing (which made me sad in like 10 different ways) because Lucy had a dance recital on Saturday (which, of course I couldn’t miss and yes, I will most certainly post a video of her doing her tap routine very soon, because, of course, she was adorable, but that’s not important right now =D) so I opted to volunteer to be a Teacher’s Assistant for a day.
Being a TA for someone you’ve never met is kind of a crap shoot, really – for both parties involved. I was a little worried that I would end up with someone who didn’t quite "get me" and who would be disappointed that they didn’t get a young college student they could easily boss around.
Lucky me! I was assigned to the amazing Britney Mellen. I think her job title is Creative Editor for Creating Keepsakes Magazine. (and I think she was pretty happy to have had a wow-not-only-is-she-not-young-but-probably-old-enough-to-be-my-mother-! person to boss around, but that’s not important right now. =D)
We got along BEAUTIFULLY. In fact, I would consider her an actual "friend" now.
Maybe a better title for her would be:
The Most Gracious and Fabulous CKU Teacher in Need of Assistance (and not at all bossy in any way, I might add). =D
