Never have I missed my “little man” more nor the rest of all our kids than being away from them for nearly 20 days of shooting for my latest feature, “Elena Undone.” While I’ve been set-bound (and having a glorious time, I might add) — Deb, my dear biz partner, has been keeping www.PreemieWorld.com running smoothly and preparing for the launch of our new book as well as our Baby Safe Pack which I’m very excited about. Since Nicholas uses Hallcrest’s Thermostrips I’m really thrilled about getting a special PreemieWorld version of these into the hands of other parents who simply want to keep their children safe from spiking temps and more.
Probably one of the greatest comments I got during shooting, is that for the most part I look like a haggard graying mess – (2-3 hours of sleep a night will do that to a girl!) — And I came out of Nicholas’s room one afternoon (we shot at our home the first 8 days — never again!) and my producer, Jane Clark, commented, “My God, what just happened to you? You’re radiant — there’s a softness in your face and it’s the first time I’ve seen you look stress free this entire shoot.” I remarked, “I just saw Nicholas.”
If there ever was a tonic, it is truly my “little man” — He simply fills me up, rejuvenates me and makes me always, ALWAYS realize what’s important.
Now off to editing!! Hope everyone’s keeping warm this crazy winter season.
