Baby M is going through stranger anxiety.  She doesn’t like her Dad, her babysitter or her grandparents anymore.  ONLY MOM.

In other news, she is becoming more verbal and likes to “talk” to me.  We have a slew of conversations here and there.  She becomes more and more adorable each day.

Tuesday night I got a call from my manager that I had an audition for a pilot at NBC.  My heart sank a bit because I had my solo class the next day and I hadn’t written my homework.  With Baby M’s newfound  hatred of strangers, it stressed the babysitter out.  I had no idea how I was going to swing this.  Here’s how it went:

-Call husband to freakout.  He says:  “Is it worth it?”  and I angrily spew  “Are you freaking kidding me!”  and hang up.
-I call mother in law and arrange for her to watch the baby.
-I cancel the babysitter.
-I print out sides and read it for a few hours.
-Dinner is not cooked, husband is understandably grumpy.
-I fall asleep around 9:30 and vow to wake up to work on the script in the morning.
-The next morning I wake up around 5:00 AM and work on the script.
-Then slowly pack:  Portable crib, toys, blankets, diaper bag, stroller, bouncy seat, milk, breast pump (just in case)
-Screw a shower, I use dry shampoo.  Doll myself up while playing with the baby.
-Pack car.
-Baby M’s poops up her back.  Need to change entire outfit.
-Decide to change my outfit twice.
-Drive to mother in laws.  When there is a lull in traffic, I read my lines.
-Unload car.  Set up all the baby gear.
-Feed baby twice.
-Change baby.
-Feel REALLY bad about leaving baby…

I walked to the subway, got to Manhattan and felt thrilled about going to 30 Rockerfeller for an audition.  I’m a huge fan of 30 Rock so it felt really special to run around the building where my idol, Tina Fey, saunters.

I get to the casting room.  There are a few beautiful girls.  I go out to the hall and rehearse.  I get called in.  I read for Jennifer and Tre.  Tre asks if I want to read again.  I do.  He says:  “Good job!”

When I get home, I asked my husband:  “Babe, why did you ask me if it was worth it?  I don’t need that from you!  It’s so hard already!”

He said:  “Well, if you want it bad enough, you’re going to make it happen.”

And THAT is why I love my husband 😀
