Homeschool Mama: Not A Hugger

So I have inherited something from my father.  I am not a hugger.  I don’t hug people.  Ok, let me rephrase that.  I hug my kids all.the.time.  And the Principal.  And I can now add to that list my homegroup Sistahs….And only in the last month do I offer the hug first. But if you aren’t in that ‘inner circle’ I go to pretty impressive lengths to not hug somebody. So fast forward to October. ...I am going to a blog conference ...a women’s blog conference.  I know there will be hugging.  My dad actually had a pin that he wore when he was in certain Escapee situations “NOT A HUGGER” so they knew not to hug him. I am praying this is something I will get ove/Crazy Homeschool Mama. More here.

Question: Are you a hugger?
