Several of you asked me to remind you when the Daring Edition of the Today Show was airing. The show is scheduled to air one week from yesterday, Tuesday April 24th. Set your TiVo and stock up on smoked oysters and artichoke dip. It’s gonna be a par-tay.
Please no spoiler emails that morning from those of you living on the East Coast. I want to be surprised. Because technically, although I was present at least in body during the taping, I have absolutely no idea what I actually said, besides mumbling something about how my lips hurt real bad, GOSH! Multiple. Times. I’m also clueless as to what they’ll do with the segment in editing.
After it airs on the West Coast and I finish hyperventilating, I will be happy to hop on my computer and dish about my impressions of the piece and whether it measured up to my very modest expectations. I simply want to appear 40 pounds lighter than I am in real life with a Touched By An Angel glow around my head and I want the freakishly well-behaved and intelligent child-bots I rented to play Laylee and Magoo to look somewhat lifelike on TV (I’m not holding out much hope for those of you watching in HD).
I’ll also be more than a little disappointed if they don’t turn the interview into some sort of 15 second mommy-war controversy about how I think I’m better than everyone else because I wear socks with grey toes. Of course, they’ll likely buy into my superiority complex and turn the entire 3-hour show into a Matt Lauer exclusive spectacular about how fun, gifted and talented at ping pong I am.
If they show nothing but the 10 second clip where my 4 double chins and I fight with Magoo about his toddleric rights to premium individually wrapped cheese, that’ll be okay too.
When you find out approximately what time it’s on please let us know. I know the show is like 2 hours long, well maybe it is only one hour long, but even that can be hard for me to watch during my girls show time.
The morning is all about what they want, and it often goes that way into the night.
Ee! I.Must.Write.It.On.My.Calendar, I don’t want to miss it! Seeing as we don’t have cable Tivo is a waste, so I will have to etch this date into my memory and hope it airs BEFORE I take the beasty to preschool.

I just set mine on my Ti-Faux (Boomamaism). 🙂
Mary O says
I’ll be watching! =)
I love how you’re preparing yourself for all eventualities. I promise that no matter how awful it is, I’ll come here and leave a cheery comment. Like say, how they only got three out of your four chins in a given shot. =P

I DON’T HAVE TV!!! I’m sorry, was I shouting? What am I gonna do? WHAT AM I GONNA DO? WHAAAT?
No Cool Story says
“stock up on smoked oysters and artichoke dip” OH you got MY number sister.
I don’t watch any morning shows, but for you I have it already TiVoed. I’ll also save it to DVD and maybe I’ll uploaded…becuase I love you that much.
I must watch that! You need to remind us the day before too (only if you want, I’m not going to boss the Daring One). How were you contacted to do this? You are such a celebrity! Are you freaking out? Did you call Matt Lauer glib?
The Wooden Porch says
I think I saw a commercial for it already and you looked to be about 24 with perfect skin and perky boo*bs. Golly! Who knew a blogger could be so dang cute? 😉
Next Tuesday morning? At least my wife will get to see that I’ve been reading and responding to someone’s blog, not flirting with thinner, unpregnant women on the internet. But actually reading what parents are going thru so I’ll be prepared enough to know that I’m not prepared.
Mary C says
Oh, you are so stinkin’ funny. I can’t wait to watch you and those 2 cuties running around.
And you telling us your NOT better than we are for wearing grey-toed socks? I don’t believe it for one second! I have only one pair to my name, so I think you are definitely ahead!
Got it Tivo’d. Can’t wait- you’ll be great!
I will have to buy a pair of grey toed socks just so I won’t feel so inadequate. And then I can sit there and flaunt my toes at the screen Tuesday morning and say to no one in particular, I knew her blog before it was televised.
Someone MUST youtube this segment for me. I have to be at work so I won’t be able to see it live…
But I’d love to you and all you DYM glory, with or without the 4 double chins.
J. Fergie says
Yes! What Shalee said. I have a 7:30am dentist appt. (so I can make it to work at a decent time) so PLEASE youtube for me!!
So excited for you!
Tivo is set 🙂 Can’t wait!
It will be either day 1 or 2 home with The Cupcake so I’m sure I’ll be up and nursing at a horrid hour. Thanks for giving me something to look forward to!
You can see lots of the Today show segments on their website — hopefully we can replay the daring glory over and over.
Thanks for the reminder. But really, smoked oysters and artichoke dip… ewwwww!
Jennifer B. says
I’ll be watching!

I was on the Today Show 4 years ago today… The subject was juggling a busy life….and Matt Lauer said my name 6 times… 😀
When the show finally came on, I was amazed at how many shots my big butt was in… so I can relate to what you are talking about with your double chins.
This is the first that I’ve been to your blog… I made my way here through Shannon…. but I’ll be back… 🙂 And I’ll be watching today!
Ok. I went to bed really late last night….and so this morning, I had every intention of watching, but when I flippped on the TV this am—-I fell asleep! So I missed it!
So after searching on the Today show webpage….
I SAW YOU!!! Your vid is up at http://www.thetodayshow.com under the story
“Has Motherhood Changed?”
You look good and your kids are adoreable!
