The 619

sd11.jpg

A conversation between my son and I while I try to explain my trip to SBL2 at the end of the week:

Me:  LilK, now you know Mom’s going out of town on Friday, and your dad is flying in Friday…so we are going to do a sort of a baton hand off at the airport.

LilK:  Where are you going again?

Me:  San Diego, remember we talked about this?

LilK:  Yea, the 619, that’s not fair.  Dad gets to see the USS Constitution and you get to go to the 619 and I get to go nowhere.  (He then explains “619” is a reference to a car racing video game – and 619 is the area code for San Diego.  I googled it…and guess what?  ….it is!  go figure)

LilK:  What are you going there for?

Me:  Im going to a conference remember….for military spouses.

LilK:  What do you have to do?  Give a speech?

Me: No, Im going to sit on a panel and answer some questions.

LilK: Wow, like a celebrity or like the President when he is answering questions from all those reporters.  (He then proceeds to say, “Yes, next question please Mr. Reporter”.)

Me:  Not quite, but close.

LilK:  Is it just you?

Me:  No, I’ll be the Navy Wife and there will also be an Army wife and an Air Force wife.

LilK:  Wow, thats an honor, you know that right mom?  How did they pick you???

He is right, it is an honor.  I’m still not sure how they picked me, however I’m so happy they did! 🙂

I’ll be deploying to the 619 later this week, only to miss BigK in the airport.  He arrives after I take off.  Maybe I’ll leave him a note at the Starbucks counter.  I love my crazy life.
