Yowza. What a wonderful whirlwind it’s been since we found out last Thursday that we won the Webster award for having the best parenting/family blog in CT! We really appreciate all of your support, we wouldn’t have won this without you, our terrific readers & followers!
Pretty much right after we won our blogger Melissa worked some magic and scored us a LIVE interview on Fox News CT for Monday. I’m not going to lie – I was downright terrified! I had never been in a TV studio before let alone been interviewed on live television. Fortunately for me, I brought along our blogger Kris-Ann to talk about her special needs column. Kris-Ann did a great job at keeping me calm and talking me through things!
Neither of us brought a camera with us (whoops!) but we met a very lovely woman in the “green room” (yes, we waited in the green room till it was time!). She snapped a photo of us and emailed it to me last night:
Of course, as working mommas both Kris-Ann and I had to juggle making sure our kids were taken care of and our jobs were OK with us missing the morning. My morning was crazy – I had that dress picked out but didn’t want to put it on until after I dropped the baby off at daycare so after drop-off at 7:30 a.m. I quickly changed, did my makeup and then Kris-Ann was over at 8 a.m. and we were on our way to the studio!
We met some very terrific people while we waited to go on air, and then it was time! They put on our microphones and ushered us into the studio. We sat down and they suddenly started counting down! I didn’t know if they were counting down to us or to someone else! 🙂
I think we did a pretty good job! Check out the video:
After we finished we both went right back to mommy duty. I had to bring the baby (and eventually myself) to the doctor and Kris-Ann had to hop right on a conference call. No rest for working mommas!!
This Thursday we receive our award at a small gathering being put on by the Courant. Myself, Marie and Dena will be there (I’m bringing the baby!) and we are so excited!
