Toddler Race on WBIR 5/5 at 5pm

Part of me is excited, part of me is fearing the worst. I've agreed to participate with my 14-month-old Brooke in a toddler race tomorrow, May 5 on the 5:00pm news--WBIR. There will actually be two races: one for crawlers and one for toddlers. This could either go really well or really poorly, depending on whether Brooke runs to me at full tilt with a broad smile or gets stranger anxiety and bursts into tears. What will happen is anybody's guess. So you won't want to miss it.

I think it's mainly just for fun. Who wants a margarita for Cinco de Mayo when you could watch the unpredictability of racing babies--though I may need that drink after this! ;-) I'm taking all three kids to the station for a behind-the-scenes look at how TV is made. Having worked as a TV producer for 11 years, I find it kind-of odd that my children have never been to a television station. It's like that was a different life. Sigh. I don't regret my decision to become a SAHM five years ago, but if you have any interest in what I used to do, click here.

The main reason I agreed to participate is that hopefully it will give some good publicity for a fundraiser for the Lisa Ross Birth and Women's Center. That's where I had both Devin and Brooke--both beautiful experiences. The Seventh Annual Walk for Healthy Babies (just one mile) is scheduled to begin at 9:30am on Saturday, June 5 at Victor Ashe Park. We plan to be there. And if you'd like to see one of the videos I produced for them, click here and scroll down. Let the races begin!
