TV What?

So here's the news I've been so excited to share. I waited until the last minute to blog about it, because I just wanted to make sure that it would really happen! As the UPS guy dropped off a bunch of packages today I realized that it really will happen!

Here's the 411. About 2 weeks ago I got an email from a guy in Phoenix asking if I'd be interested in doing a TV segment with an ABC affiliate in SLC. Hmmm. Sound like a prank? I thought so too.

I emailed him back asking if it was a joke, and he emailed me this. Its a link to another "mommy blogger" who just finished a live TV segment. This guy {we'll call him Grant}, explained that he was looking for a mom who blogs and has a baby to help demonstrate some baby products. However, instead of being live in studio like this mom, he wanted to set it up so that a reporter comes into a home and has a mom {me} talk about the products while a baby {Aidan} demo's them. {Yes, let's all pray that he cooperates...and not doing this segment on live TV was a GREAT idea.:)}

And after many emails and planning with Grant, this is the low down:

-All of the items I'm suppose to talk about are here! We are testing them out and I'm trying to figure out what to say about them. {Oh yeah, and hope the "practicing" helps me not make a total fool of myself.} They also sent me some of the things to give away on my blog...Yippee!!

-A reporter will be coming to our house Wednesday to shoot this segment. {Hopefully just after Aidan wakes from a nice restful nap;).}

-Here is what I will give away after the segment airs...a size small Baby B'air, a pink tub-time bumper, & a tilty sippy cup. I'm also going to throw in one of my Car Seat Blankets & a pattern to make your own CSB! {More info on that will come later.} We will also be talking about {but not giving away} the Baby Briefcase & the Sport Brella.

Now a few "Q&A" asked by the 2 people I've actually talked to about this:

When will it air?
I don't know yet. They are suppose to let me know when they come Wednesday. I'll be sure to post about it and get a link if there is one. All I know is that it will be ABC.

How did they find you?
Grant said it wasn't easy, but he did a search on mommy blogger SLC. I guess just got lucky!

Are you excited?
Yes, but nervous {of course}. Today I tripped and totally fell as I was taking down the Sport Brella. I just hope I don't do anything to make too much of a fool of myself!

Is Aidan excited?
Um, I think that kid was born ready. And I guess as long as everyone remembers to shut the bathroom door {that kids LOVES the toilet}, and that I don't go too far away {if I do he screams at me}, or he doesn't start throwing everything out of my tupperware cabinet, things should go alright.:)

I'll keep you posted on anything else. Wish us luck! {We'll need it!}
