The videos from 2011 Listen To Your Mother are online! Here's me reading my piece at the Barrymore - if you have the time, click on over and watch the whole show. (90 minutes total, split up piece by piece. The Madison show runs from Confessions of a Cribaholic [hilarious] to 35th Trimester and is followed by a tear-jerking rendition of Lily Allen's Chinese sung by a Madison girls youth choir. Oh, my heart.)
This is a piece I wrote a year or so ago about an experience I had about a year before that. I'm no longer in that same place, at home full-time with three little kids, but I think the core message still holds.
We need each other, mamas. We really do. Hat tip and a thank you to my friend Maria for summing up the heart of my story so succinctly back when I first wrote it. I grabbed her comment and wove it in to the out-loud version, to hit home the moral of the story with a little more clarity and strength.
