How do you make live television even more unpredictable? Just add kids...and the result might land on the RidicuList!
Another to prove kids will do it to you all the time-my day started as usual getting 2kids off to school-one with fetal alcoholmeffects who sure knew how to push my buttons-multi-tasking trying to bottle feed young baby & get myself something to eat- ck on aging parents then pack up baby & walk 1/2mile to bus to TV studio to tape program as usual-at studio at 9.05 already stressed for interview will be flying by seat of pants as usual but know I will do good interview like always-no ba bysitter so baby comes along-put her outside studio door-red lite do not disturb on she is sleeping-get guest seated etc- away we go-about 4-5 mins into interview baby cries!control room tell camera op. to put down headphones & go rock -he complies-she is sleeping-back to camera work-few minutes later repeat performance- camera op obliges again-back to camera work-few but few minutes later happens again -camera man repeats – I am trying to stay in control & get interview done & guest away-finally on next cry-control room tells camera op to find bottle in carry case & feed baby -oh dear god this can't be- camera man does as told -back to cameras, finally we get finished I am so embarrassed & stressed could have buried my head in sand Thank goodness I always had such a good crew to work with – kids will do it to you all the time. Thanks for another funny memory Anderson!
Kids will get me everytime-they are so real. Too bad they can't run for office.
