Last night was the finale of Stars Earn Stripes, the competition which paired celebrities with military to win money for troops, first responders, and veterans. WWE's Eve Torres was the big winner, and I congratulate her and all the participants for taking part in such a worthy cause and showing respect to those who work so hard to keep us safe.
Todd Palin remained until last night's show and was indeed a strong competitor and a force to be reckoned with. I was impressed and pleased for Todd. I was even more pleased, however, by a comment he made during a recent interview which Governor Palin linked to in a Facebook post yesterday.
Apparently, Trig, the Palins' son, spoke his first words as Dad was competing on Stars Earn Stripes. Trig is four years old, has Down syndrome, and is the apple of his family's eyes.
You can read the full interview here, but I will share the part about Trig's progress:
Zap2it: How is your son, 4-year-old Trig, doing?
Todd Palin: He's doing good. When we were filming, he said his first words. He told his older brother to quit picking on him, or something like that. And when J.W. went back to New York on one of the dark days, he said his name, so that was pretty exciting.
Congratulations to both Todd and Trig.
