when the internet visits
August 10, 2007
I mentioned that yesterday Isabel Kallman was coming over to interview me about children’s clothing, specifically what you look for when purchasing clothing for kids, hand me downs, shopping sales etc. I guess she thought I would have some sort of knowledge in this area. Little did she know that she would have a window into my neurotic world of white socks and love of color navy blue. It is such a classic color, what isn’t there to love about navy blue. Nothing. I dare you to say anything bad about navy blue.
She also got to bear witness to the fact that I color co-ordinate my children’s clothing if they are going to be having their photos taken en masse. Because, as I told her, otherwise it looks like a a mismatched bunch of circus folk. When their clothing co-ordinates, you notice each individual item of clothing less and notice the child more.
The kids were all well behaved, which after the morning filled with tantrums that Miles had I was worried. Inviting the internet into your home is more than slightly nerve wracking. What if they think, “You are not nearly as articulate as you type and your kids are not even cute!”
This is the one photo that I took from the entire day. Nice and blurry. I did that on purpose, the blur technique. No really.
Rob did a great job wrangling the kids on very little sleep. He had flown in from San Francisco on the red eye and not arrived home until 5am. I allowed him to sleep until 10 before forcing him to get up so I could make the bed and he could help make sure no one got dirty before Isabel and her cameraman arrived.
There were a few really funny moments, one was when I was showing my daughter’s closet on camera and the pole fell down and we couldn’t get it to stay back up. I have asked Rob a couple of times to replace it with a more sturdy one, but in terms of projects it is very low on the list, right behind polishing the copper bottoms on my pots and pans. Most of her clothing is in her dresser where she can easily reach it herself.
Another one was when we were sitting in my family room filming and my 8 yr old walked by the picture window that is located behind the couch and was jumping up and down to look in the window at us. I had to remind him that this was not the Today show.
