I get the privileged of getting to be on Rogers Cable 20 out of Kitchener/Waterloo, Ontario area, on the show ‘daytime’ with Susan Cook-Scheerer. The show airs LIVE at noon and then re-air at 3, 6 & 11. This show will also be on their Family Day Special on Monday Feb 21st.
WOW, this was very different for me. First off I was to pre-tape the show on Thursday the 17th but due to some needed changes Rogers TV contacted me Tuesday afternoon to see if I could come in on Wednesday day. “OK”. Right after I said those words I wasn’t sure why I did. I wasn’t ready, I planned on taking Wednesday to prep for the show, now not only did I need to get a lot of regular blog work done I have to get my prep work done. On top of that I had to scramble to find another company to review as one of the companies I was going to work with had some problems and wasn’t able to get me their item in time. So with all that I felt in over my head.
So I dug down deep, and went to work. I was up to only 1AM, which is only an hour past when I usually go to bed, so not bad. But then I couldn’t sleep, “was I going to forget something? how do I say this again? what is the name?…” All thoughts running through my head.
Well the show was today. I think it went really really well. I wasn’t as nervous. My whole family got a chance to be on it as well. Hubby sat on the stage with Moo & Lee while the kids played (Lee was coloring pages from the Nightmare Nibbler site).
I got to talk about three items. The first was the Nightmare Nibbler. He’s a little guy your child can take to bed to help “eat” their bad dreams. I also mentioned that they donate a portion of each sale to “Sleeping Kids Around the World” organization. Susan had heard of them which was really cool. The next item I reviewed was the clutch ball from Crafty Baby. Susan really thought it was an interesting shape and loved it was made by a mom.
The last thing I talked about was the Super Sprowtz books, I love these books and was so excited to share them with the viewers. Super Sprowtz also so kindly donated a set of books for ‘daytime’s’ Freebie Friday. I’m excited to see who will win.
I’m not sure if you will be able to tell but in the middle of talking about the clutch ball I kind of go blank, I don’t hear anything except something that happened behind me for about 30 seconds. I felt bad because i missed a part of what was being said. I got home and was like, I have no clue what happened and why I went so blank. Hope it doesn’t show.
Again, I had soooooooo much fun. Feels like I’m in a dream and I don’t want to wake up. Doing reviews, running this blog, having the privileged of being on TV- this all seems so unreal. And I’m loving every minute of it.
Thank you Rogers Cable 20 and Susan Cook-Scheerer. Also a HUGE thank you to Super Sprowtz, Nightmare Nibbler & Crafty Baby.
My segment below (freebie Friday segment will be posted after Friday)-
I was not paid to review these items or to come on this TV show. All opinions are my own and may differ from yours. (Just wanted to add I have never been paid for a review or for doing ‘daytime’ Rogers TV)
I also wanted to thank Follow Me I’m Canadian and Little Village Naturals for connecting me with the people at Nightmare Nibbler.
