Rosie's TV Debut
Last Thursday I sat down with the KTV 13 Morning Anchor Elizabeth Alvarez and had a nice conversation about being a stay-at-home mom in Albuquerque. That conversation and some extra footage of me playing with Rosie have been boiled down to a few bits of background for their morning show, which ran today.

Stay at home parents may save some cash: krqe.com

My particular quote didn't necessarily fit with the way they were billing the story, since my earning power is much more than what it would cost us to put Rosie in Daycare, but I think I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

My second comment, btw, about having that relationship with Rosie, had to do with breastfeeding. I was trying to fit some messages in there about how much easier it is to breastfeed if you are not working, but alas, that context got cut. In case you don't know, currently only about 15% of American moms exclusively breastfeed for the American Pediatric Association's recommended minimum of 6 months. The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding for at least a year. We also talked about what advice I would give stay-at-home parents, and beyond "Get out of the house!" I discussed programs at area libraries, the Explora Museum, and the Zoo. I may do a blog entry later on the "advice" topic, though I still think I could use as much advice as I might have to offer.

Ms. Alvarez was unable to give me a heads-up before the piece ran this morning, so we were unable to have someone DVR it. Does anyone know how to capture and save it from this online clip?

Nice! You look and sound great, and Rosie's just a bundle of cute. I love that they used your holiday card too.
