Small World Shout Out to Rebecca of Girls Gone Child

Wyatt had preschool on Wednesday of this week, so after I dropped him off I went to the bookstore for coffee and magazines. I was walking over to the newstand when I noticed someone that looked very familiar. Almost exactly like Rebecca Woolf from Girl's Gone Child, (a blog I have been following faithfully since Wyatt was born), and her son, Archer. (Also author of "Rockabye,from Wild to Child", a book I have yet to read, but is definitely on my list.) Hmmm. There aren't many mommybloggers I have felt a sort of kinship with, but Rebecca is one of those that I have always pictured myself hanging out with in real life. Her writing style is incredibly honest and true to life, and she says the stuff I wish I was brave enough to.

After a couple minutes of deliberation, I finally sucked it up and nonchalantly approached her and mentioned that I read her blog and we started chatting. About our kids, our tattoos (I noticed she has a very similar star pattern on her wrist), our hot old houses, and the fact that she was down from LA visiting her mom in Encinitas and had actually gone to the exact same preschool Wyatt now attends. She was every bit as cool and down to earth as I had imagined, and maybe sometime we can actually "plan" to run into each other again, and have a coffee/ play date the next time she is in town. Wanted to post a shout out, and much love to an awesome mama. If you haven't already, go check her out here. Seriously, I LOVE her. DO IT.

Sadly, I did not get to meet the delicious and delightful Ms. Fable, and her fabulously drool-worthy thighs. Sigh. There is always next time, I hope. ;)
