Exciting stuff around here today! The girls and I were on the Fox 5 San Diego morning news! I got an e-mail a couple of weeks ago from the people at Fox 5. They had read my post on Sibling Love (teaching kids to get along and love each other) and wanted to know if I would come and talk about a few of the tips I mentioned in my post for their “Mommy Daddy Handbook” segment. I was excited! And totally nervous. Then they told me they wanted my girls to be on too and I got even more excited! And then even more nervous. Now we had the unpredictability factor going on. Now aside from worrying about making a total idiot of myself I also had to worry about what my girls might say or do at any given moment. :) But the girls did great and we all survived the experience! As soon as we were finished I picked up my phone to call Kenny (he was watching it live on TV). I was going to ask him if I did my nervous laugh too often? If I talked with my hands too much like I tend to do? If the camera really does add 10 pounds? (Which by the way I’ve decided definitely yes!) Or if he noticed how there were times I wasn’t sure where to look – do I look at the lady speaking to me? at the camera? at the people behind the camera smiling at me? But he had already sent me a text message —
“That was awesome! I smell an Oscar! Red Carpet here we come. Color me Stedman.”
So I smiled and decided to critique myself to death later. I told the girls they were amazing and drove home.
Pretending to be Oprah all the way.
