UPDATE 5pm I just got a confirmation that our piece airs tonight between 8 and 9pm EST.
We really appreciate all the support and well wishes. Thanks guys. We’re feeling a lot of excitement, stress and terror all rolled up into one. The shooting was fun, but it was a huge relief when it was over.
Now we’re just waiting to see how it comes together. It still seems crazy that there’s going to be a piece about this site and our family on TV tonight. I suspect you’ll see a lot more about us than you could ever want to. But the reason we did it was because it sounded like a lot of fun. I hope that’s what comes across in the show:)
Trixie was awesome for almost the entire time. She woke up with a giant camera in her bedroom and she barely batted an eye. I have no idea why she wasn’t more freaked out.
In contrast, we were nervous in the beginning. For example, I made a pot of coffee — without the pot. I don’t know if they’ll use it because there might have been cursing involved (I can’t really remember). Also, speaking of memory, neither Jennifer nor I remember anything that we said, so pretty much everything on the show will be a surprise. Although I vaguely recollect one of those gotcha moments where I might have admitted on camera that I do love my daughter.
We’re definitely letting Trixie stay up to watch it. When they were setting up the camera and lights there was one point when she was able to watch me in the monitor and she was hooked. It was nonstop Daddy TV. I’m pretty sure she’s going to freak when she sees herself tonight. I’ll try to get a reaction shot.
