I'm going to the NJ-SCBWI conference this weekend. I've been to lots of conferences before, but never one that meant being away from home for two nights. I've given my husband detailed lists and schedules, but I'm still nervous. Everyone knows... a father is not a mother. KNUFFLE BUNNY makes that abundantly clear! (Have I mentioned Mo Willems is a genius!)
Will David remember to sunblock the kids at the pool? Will he make sure that Jordan wears her black jazz shoes on Sunday for her Aladdin show? Will he leave the can't-live-without bunny in the laundromat? (No, wait. That's Trixie's dad!)
Usually my biggest fear is "Will he give them nightmares for years by showing them completely inappropriate movies," but with Jordan in her first Disney musical, there is a bit more at stake! (and, no, of course I am not missing her big debut. I am skipping out of the conference early and going straight to the theater)
The good news is.. with all these worries running around my head, I have no time at all to be nervous about meeting editors and agents!
