Listen to Your Mother (and me, too)

A couple months ago, I threw caution to the wind and submitted a piece to the San Francisco Listen to Your Mother show. Then, a couple weeks later I showed up in person and read my own writing out loud. It was fairly awkward in that “do one thing that scares you” kind of a way. Those two steps in the audition process were as far as I ever expected to get. I was proud to simply have “put myself out there” for judgement and consideration.

Chickpea burgers from Chef Dayna McLeod

It’s meatless Monday and while we usually mark that with a veggie soup recipe, I’m mixing things up a bit with a great new recipe and interview with a good friend of mine, vegan chef to the stars Dayna McLeod.

DailyBuzz Moms: Thoughts on my mama pride

Me and my girl, about the same age, a lifetime apart. In many ways, Emerson is my mini me. Her little toddler body resembles the one my mom remembers -same chubby knees, same feet and same buddha belly. Sure, she’s got blue eyes and red hair thanks to some mighty strong recessive genes, but her physicality is mostly mine. And until recently she possessed the same painful shyness and uncertainty in new situations that shaped my earliest memories. It’s been hard to watch her struggle through the first hour of any play date, birthday party Read More →
