No such thing as FREE press!

Today Ellie Merritt, with our local NBC affiliate here in Columbus, came to the house to interview me about OnTray and being a WAHM. Well, first of all, I woke up with a horrible headache and that threw me into major panic mode about how I was going to come across on film. Second of all, she gets here and is even more beautiful in person, about 10 feet tall & weighs no more than a minute. Great, now I have a headache and a self complex issue! Anyway, she was FANTASTIC! So personable, sophisticated and easy to talk with. I didn't feel intimidated (well maybe a little) and I'm hoping that the editing room at NBC4 is ready to make me look like I didn't have a headache and maybe 15 pounds lighter :). Ellie wanted the boys to be here so she could see how it is to work from home and balance playing with the kids. I was worried that the boys wouldn't be on their best behavior, so last night at bath time I bribed them. Yes, not my proudest moment, but what's a mom to do? Well as soon as they left (and I mean AS SOON as they left) we were off to Target. $60.00 later the boys were happy, and I realized that there really is no such thing as free press!

Ellie Merritt has a great blog about the struggles of juggling all there is in life when you become a parent and a working one at that! She invites her readers to share their thoughts, chat and even laugh about things happening around the! Check it out at :
