Getting to Know You: Great Day Houston

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

We had a great experience this morning at Great Day Houston. I did ask myself several times "what in the world are you doing taking 3 kids to a TV show?" but I decided the experience would be priceless. By the time we made it to the studio (we were the last ones to get in I believe), they welcome you and we went to the bathroom. There was also a giveaway so we filled out a form (we didn't win this time). Here is an excited photo of the kids. Really and truly we didn't know what to expect.

We made it face :)
They set us at the side that was kid-friendly, meaning, you can step out if need be. They gave us a little time to post on social media that we were going to be on Live TV. I had no idea it was going to be live so we kinda buckled up for the whole experience. 
The majority of the show was a parenting panel. I'll post the link here as soon as I can. The great thing about TV is that there are breaks. During the breaks I told the kids to stand up and stretch out, which helped. I don't think they'll remember this show but I will and I told them how thankful I am that they came along and behaved well. This outing was more for me than for the kids. Many moons ago I earned a B.A. in broadcast journalism, so being in a TV studio brought me some cool memories. We got to take a photo with Mrs. Deborah Duncan, who is the kind host of the show. 
We also got some swag from one of the panelists, which I thought it was a nice bonus. I actually told my husband last night "I hope they give the audience something." I'm thankful.

Being part of Great Day Houston is a 2 hour and 30 minute commitment, not counting driving time. It is a free show, so if you want to go, I'd totally take advantage of this opportunity. I had a great time because I just so happen to love television production. I also wanted to give my kids a look into an area they might want to study in the future. 
This was a super fun outing and I'm glad I had the courage to go. Thanks for reading friends!
