Frag'n Friday

Mommy's Idea
Thank goodness for Fridays and Mrs. 4444's. Gives me a chance to spit out some random pictures and thoughts into one nice, neat, little bundle of a post.

*I met some very famous people, stars, wax figures in New York City.

Here I am with the Jimmy Dean Sun.... he was HOT! (bahahaha, little sun humor there)

Here is the Pillsbury Dough Boy snuggling up to Melisa and me. He squealed when I poked him in the stomach. Oh yes, I did do that.

I did a news cast with Al and Matt. Well, yes, I did all the talking.

Elton and I sang a little Crocodile Rock.

*The Hersey's Smore Suite was the most fantastic suite of them all. They transformed a hotel room into the outdoors so you felt like you were roasting marshmallows at a campsite. Cute, right?

*One very hot morning after walking over the Brooklyn Bridge, we came across this pretty fountain that we wanted to photograph. Being as subtle as I usually am, I said, "Holy Crap! There is a man bathing in the fountain!" in not too quiet of a voice. Sorry I interrupted your quiet time, sir.

*I snuck over to the Today Show at 6:30 Friday morning to try and catch site of Train. At least I saw the back of them and heard them practice for their performance later in the morning.

*If anyone knows what this building is called, a bunch of us would be grateful. It is being built near Pace University. Funky, right?

*I had the pleasure of photography the cutest little girl this week on the beach. This is one of the 300 pictures I took of her.

*How old does your daughter have to be before you let her go to the mall by herself without you being in the actual mall? This is the question of the day.

*Happy Weekend!

At night, 13 or 14 but only with a friend or sister. Saturday afternoon, a little younger, 11 or 12 (with a friend or sister). As you know, you don't get the best people a CCM.

As a general rule, I don't let my daughter "hang" at the mall and never have. She needs to have a purpose there (movie or shopping) and the money for that purpose.

Our rule was middle school (daytime) with a phone that she had to leave on. That last part took me a while to understand.

Matt isn't looking too good. Lucky for him that you were there to balance things :)

I love your pictures! That little girl is so cute! :)

I'd say 15...that's what worked for me & I took the train all by myself :)

Hmmm...depends on where you live. Here on the Cape, I'd say about ten. Especially since kids these days have cell phones so it's really easy to keep tabs on them.

Great job hobnobbing with the stars!

Oh that baby was so cute! As far as the mall..I never let my kids go without me at least being there. Malls are great places for predators and even now that they are grown up with families of their own I still insist they never go alone especially at night. Of course having a brother murdered and another family member carjacked and raped from a convenience store makes me a bit paranoid!
Have a great week!

I look like such a dork sitting around the campfire.

I wish I hadn't missed the hoo!
First Tim Gunn, and now the Sun!
