10-10-10 and Fox News

Fox News came, well, the cameraman came. I didn't know what to expect, but it wasn't just a cameraman reading off the interview questions from behind the camera.

He filmed me making dinner (ha, heating up enchiladas that were made by someone else ((thanks Diane!)) and frozen by me:) and setting the table (something I always have the kids do so I don't have to). It is very uncomfortable talking and setting a table in front of a camera.

He filmed Nathan playing a game with the kids and us eating dinner. It was a little weird eating in front of the guy. I felt I should make him a plate of food or something and ask him to join us.

Then we sent the kids to the basement to watch a movie (by this time it was waaay after their bedtime, so they felt pretty cool) and that's when he read off the interview questions from behind the camera. We only had to redo a couple answers, so I think we did pretty good. Too bad it's not like a digital camera where we could see how we did before letting him take that footage out of the house.

He said if we actually are able to pull it off and have Lincoln on 10-10-10 then it will be shown nationally on Fox, not just locally. If it doesn't happen on the 10th, then it won't be shown at all, obviously.

I'm guessing the story's airing would depend on what time of day he's born, so we'll just have to wait for that one. But my doctor is thinking he can pull it off. He's finding out who the nurses will be on 10-10-10 and will talk to them. He is going to stay in town so he's available instead of depending on the doctor on call, so that is awesome.

We'll see what happens!
