Old Chigaco

Posted in Uncategorized by kerrimason on July 21, 2009

I was recently in Denver with a few friends and we decide to go out to eat at a place called Old Chicago.  A few mentioned it was a chain, but never one I had seen.  It was new to me.

We had a great time.  Was it the food?  It was good, but nothing memorable.  The drinks? Eh… that was acutally a bit overpriced.  Definitely the waiter.  Yes, he MADE the night.  He was on top of his game.  He reminded me of a comedy skit … on SNL or Mad, can’t remember which, where the UPS guy always had lots of energy and was a bit bouncy.  

He shared about himself here and there through the night – liked to golf, hang out with his little cousins, had woken up randomly really early that morning and went for a run.  By all means he should have been VERY tired by that time of the day.  BUT, no he was fully present with us.  We loved it.

Trust me, he was tipped well that night.  As we left he even popped over to the door and opened it for us.  We had not realized how tall he was!!  He (this college kid) gave each of us women a big hug as we left.  We felt we had made his night too. What a great experience.


Who is Kerri Mason?

Welcome world.  A few of my friends and I have recently decided to give blogging a try.  I am a Mom – three young kids – 8,5, and 3.  I still feel “new” in the mom world compared to some friends, but I find myself handing out advice to those first time mom’s.  I guess seven years has started to count for something.

So, who am I?  I used to be a high school science teacher, but I currently work from home – helping parents teach their children through play.  I am not the best house keeper, and I am not that “natural” stay at home mom that has a craft for everyday (bless those who do!).   But, I love my kids and enjoy playing with them.

Do you know that the average parent only spends about 15 minutes a day playing with their child?  Think about it for a minute… you on the floor engaged with your child – in a game, immaginary play, building, etc.  I have to admit,  it doesn’t happen as often as I would like here.  I do spend a lot of time reading to them, and I love that they are all becoming old enough to play games – I CAN do that!  How about you?

Hello world!
