Booster Seat Bean

1 Jul

She’s called Bean and she’s a booster seat demo queen. Well, maybe not a queen but she did get featured in two Atlanta television news stories about the new booster seat law in Georgia. Our Public Relations team at work needed a child her age to help the news stations spread the word about the new law and we were glad to help. It also meant that Nia would get to spend some time with me in my cube that morning. It was fun for her to meet my work buds and draw a beautiful window scene on my dry erase board. (I can’t wait to see it again when I’m back at work.) She also got to watch a movie on my phone (thanks, Netflix!) while I worked in the chair next to her. She loved sitting in my swivel chair and eating the crackers I have stashed in my drawer.

Before her busy tv/work morning started though, I joked that I hoped she wouldn’t make silly faces or spontaneously scream during the live interview. I mean, you just never know with kids (or many adults for that matter). Of course, she didn’t. She did exactly as they asked her to do and even planned out an answer to the anchor’s question. (The question was supposed to be, “How does riding in a booster seat make you feel?” She told me she was going to answer, “I feel comfortable in it.” If you watch the live interview below though, it didn’t go as planned. I think she still rocked it with that head nod though!)

You can see her in the stories by clicking the links below:

  • FOX 5 Atlanta – She was used as the demo child for the morning live shot and did fabulous, darling.
  • WSB-TV – She was used as b-roll for the story and buckles up beautifully.

I was able to capture a few pictures from her experience. The last one melts my heart. She woke up so early that day and was such a good sport during all the running around and buckling and unbuckling. My sleepy super star.
