We arrived at KVUE at 8:10 am. When we got there, we were taken to the break room where we met up with the Jones Family. The Jones left shortly after for their interview, which we were able to watch on a TV in the break room. After their interview was over, it was our turn. All our kids did amazingly well---I was pleasantly surprised at how well behaved they were while we were on air! The last TV interview we did they were throwing toys and running away. I'd like to say it is because of our fabulous parenting that they did so well this time (ha, ha), but the truth is I think they were fascinated by all the lights, microphones, and cameras. Also we didn't have to sit on the couch for very long before the actual interview started. Following our interview, they brought the Jones family back in for a final shot with all of us together (unfortunately, that shot is not on the web version of the story).
Seeing the Jones quints brought back lots of memories of when our quints were one. It also made us grateful to be in the stage that we are in. Two and a half is hard, but one was soooo much harder! I love that my "babies" can talk and do more things for themselves now.

The real reason my kiddos behaved during the interview was because we bribed them with breakfast at McDonald's afterwards...
So many fun things to climb on and what does Ryder go for? The broom left out by the workers. I sure hope his addiction to brooms and vacuums sticks around until it he is old enough for me to put it to good use!
