This is basically what happened when I told my kids about me being selected for the Sun Earth Day NASA Tweetup.
Me: Hey guys! Guess what?
Kids: What’s up dad?
Me: I got selected to attend a NASA Tweetup! I’m so excited!
Kids: Cool! When do we all go?
Me: Um, actually, sorry guys. Its just for me this time.
Kids: What? No fair!
Me: Don’t worry, when you are 18 you can apply for one.
Me: Hey guys, who wants ice cream?
Kids: Me! Me! Me!
So yeah, my 5 year old is pretty bummed that she can’t attend this tweetup with me.
Although I don’t like seeing her sad, I’m glad she’s excited about space and science.
Special thanks to Gavin for
1. Dressing appropriately.
2. Letting me use him as a prop.
