Lights, Camera, Action!

This Wednesday, Barrett and I will be filmed for a Children's Hospital promotional segment!
Movie Star Baby

This is Barrett's second foray into Hollywood -- he was also in a health segment with his cardiologist for the local news. 

The promotional segments will be advertisements for the annual Children's Hospital fundraiser -- the Children's Miracle Mansion. Barrett's cardiologist recommended our family for the spot, and after a quick phone interview, we were selected! Barrett was in pediatric ICU at the Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital, so this issue is close to our hearts. I'm supposed to be ready to tell Barrett's story and explain why the Children's Hospital is so important for the community. It will be hard to tell such a serious story -- in only 30 seconds -- without sounding overly dramatic or cheesy. Hm.

Anyway, wish us luck on Wednesday. And guess what? They also want Barrett's story in a separate 30 minute special broadcast! I don't have any details on that yet, maybe Wednesday is a trial run :)

No autographs, please.


  1. Oh how exciting! Please let us know when it will air. Hmmmm...maybe these spots will jumpstart his acting career...first up Children's Hospital, next stop, Gerber!

  2. Yay Barrett! That is so exciting!

  3. Thanks y'all! I hope I can catch it when it airs...we missed the news segment last time, but they gave it to us on DVD so we could see the final product. I think it will be a commercial, like the other OLOL commercials, that just play whenever. Hopefully, I'll find out more info soon!

  4. Well he looks like he's just taking it in stride - no big deal, right Barrett? Let Mama do all the stressing!
