Our Brush with Fame

The triplets and I will be on The Rachael Ray Show Wednesday (9/30).
I haven't seen the final cut, so I can't guarantee we'll have that much air time, but we watched RR today and saw Cole and I on the preview.

(The gang all ready for their outting.  They were in Pam's Rock, Paper, Scissors shirts.  A big hit with the camera crew who were trying to play RPS with the triplets!)

It's an episode with The Super Nanny, Jo Frost.  A few of us Moms got to ask Nanny Jo for advice about issues with our kids.  Our question was about Eli...our picky eater.  The boy only eats cookies and crackers.  But I was able to bring all three of the triplets.  At one point during the taping, a boy (whose issue was an inability to share) was coloring at a table when Cole came up and grabbed one of the boys' markers.
"MELTDOWN" is an understatement.  I'm 100% sure that James' meltdown will make the cut, so look for Cole as the cause.

(Cole LOVED Nanny Jo.  He looks really tired in this picture but he had just finished flirting with her while she was taping an interview with the producer.  After this picture was taken, Nanny Jo said "Your children are just precious."  I agree!  She mentioned how much she thought Cole looked like me, too.  We're BFFs now!)

It was such a great experience, going into NYC and meeting Nanny Jo.  I'd do it again in a heartbeat.  Even if our film ends up on the cutting room floor.  I was a bit nervous about bringing the babies in by myself.  But they were great.  I put their harnesses on "just in case" but then walked them from the parking garage with Cole holding my right hand and Eli holding my left.  Ava held on to my left pinky and the four of us walked so easily into the Children's Museum of Manhattan.  We were there for about 4 1/2 hours and missed the triplet's naptime completely.  By the time we left the city it was past 2:30.  The gang was asleep before we even got to the George Washington Bridge.

Can I also add that I'm a little amazed at myself?  I drove into and out of Manhattan without making a single wrong turn!

SOOOO Cool! How fun! To get a compliment from Nanny Jo about your kids is a SUPER parenting high!

Can't wait to watch!

How cool! I wish I could see the show here in Norway. It runs during the day when I'm at work, and it's always a couple of months behind.

You are a brave woman to bring 3 little kids alone to NYC. I hope you got some good advice from Nanny Jo. Please share it! I have a picky eater myself (my 6 year old girl)

So fun to see your blog. It is great!

Just stopping by from SITS wishing you a fabulous Wednesday!

Hello, I found you by way of pyjammy's blog. I already set my DVR to see Pam's shirts but now I can't wait to see your beautiful family and Supernanny. We love her and even watched her show before kids. Congrats on getting in and out of the city!

I LOVE their shirts! That's sooo cute! Good job getting in the city, through a parking lot, into a children's muesum, then back out and home again by your self with THREE 2 year olds. That's even more impressive than being on RR or meeting the Supernanny. :o)
