Hang onto your hats because we’re about to go on adventure! I’ve written a detailed account of our 6 hour flight home to CA and I am bringing you along for the ride. This is a sneak peek into part one of the story which is making its way into my book. What do you think of my voice over skills? My mom says I have a real future in it, so you know it’s got to be true, right? Lol And this story you’ll hear seems like planning ahead for vacations and changing tactics when things go wrong, determination, excepting help from strangers or setting boundaries with unhelpful strangers. Above all staying ..read more

After 10 long months in Rhode Island, we finally returned to our home in California. And while it was nice to be home again, it didn’t feel as much like home as I thought it would! I had changed so much in the last year that my home needed to reflect that. Little things like moving my shoe rack to the hall to create a little “closet recording studio” have big meaning. A challenge we tackled with Charlotte this week was going to the dentist. Things like this are always a lesson in letting go of control and just trying our best. I surprised myself by my mama bear coming out. In the end we were a ..read more

Today I’ll share with you the moving story of Charlotte’s womb song “Charlotte,O Charlotte” I’ll even sing you the song along with a quick reprise when Charlotte makes a surprise appearance in my closet! This is a very special story and I’m delighted to have a way to share it with you today. The “traveling closet” brings us to a closet at my aunt’s house where I took a night off from the family. I needed time to decompress after many days with my extrovert husband. I took the opportunity to record in their closet! Thanks Julie, I hope you didn’t mind! I put everything back the way it was I swe ..read more

Ep. 6: Trash talk, skinny dipping and a never ending book.

In this episode I share my highs and lows from a typical day with Charlotte. As a special-needs mom it’s amazing the little things I celebrate sometimes! The simple act of seeing her throw away her own trash can bring me to tears of happiness. Our lows come from moments where I can’t get Charlotte to budge, and she’s so big and strong now that sometimes I am helpless to do anything about it. I give myself a gold star for climbing my way out of self doubt by the act of journaling. Doubt and fear is often my stumbling block and I need lots of tools to get myself back on track. I hope you’ll indu ..read more

Hello Mama! I created this episode as another bedtime chat: a way for hard-working mamas to wind down at the end of the day. Perhaps you can listen to it as you’re waiting for your child to fall asleep beside you. Or maybe you are in your bed, waiting for your busy mind to slow down and let you sleep. If you drift off during this episode, I have done my job well! In this episode I reflect back on the day and give myself a gold star for a small success, and acknowledge where I stumbled. I move onto my main story… Why is Rhode Island like Gilligans island? You’ll get to hear a bit of audio from ..read more

Today’s episode has a different mood. I recorded it late at night in a more contemplative space. I share with you two poems I’ve written in the last few years. The first called “new yarn” is a love letter to motherhood and to the theater. The second one “pretty” talks about how as women we can both crave and feel trapped by attention about our looks. I hope you find meaning in them, and perhaps they inspire you to write a poem yourself today! I attached the text below. Until next time, take good care. ~~~~~~~~~ New yarn Now a mother I have been unraveled and knit back together My child's sweet ..read more
