Checking in.

When I'm away or taking a break from writing or driving or cleaning up kid-sick in the middle of the night, that is when I want to write the most. I wish I could have an accompanist on guitar playing while I move, and a narrator for my thoughts. And that I could write it all down.

You know?

Listen To Your Mother auditions are tomorrow. The whole process of the show is an absolute thrill ride. I kind of can't believe I get to be the curator of these incredible stories put up on the stage. All my other work has been slow and good lately- the anxiety that felt like it would never go away is controlled or non-existent. I am happy I figured out what I can handle for now - not so surprisingly as long as I keep doing what I enjoy, I feel great. (Although I get a pang in my left side each time I hit publish and I don't really know what that means. Is it blogging dangerously? Or is it a sign of something else?)

Speaking of which, I haven't mentioned it here yet but the videos I do daily at Mommalogues have been an unexpected joy, and it's a job free of stress and one that I'm so grateful to have. My latest favorite questions are probably what would you tell your 16-year-old self? and what does your family think of your life as a blogger? You can see some of my other videos here.

And I promise I'm not a stage mom (even though Ivy is still loving dance and has a RECITAL! in June!) but I did record her telling the story of the Three Little Pigs. She performs it better than anyone I've ever seen, that's all I'm saying...

  1. Watched this on FB... what a doll. She's so much fun. This reminds me of my Eli when he was this age and his awesome rendition of Three Billy Goats Gruff. So glad I have that on video somewhere. Thanks for the reminder to dig it out. :)

  11. I wish you had a guitarist, too. It would be like your own intro to the show of your life.
