Expressing Motherhood

The Big Issue That Moms Should Be Talking About… But Aren’t

I am passionate about car crashes. Did you know car crashes are the #1 cause of death to young people? That 40,000 kids are treated each year in emergency room for pedestrian-car accidents?...Read More

    We Have A BIG Announcement

    Co-creating, producing and directing Expressing Motherhood since 2008 has brought me immense joy.

    There is such power when people are brave enough to get up on stage and share their intermost thoughts. I sit backstage under a blue light and am in awe of the experience. READ MORE

    Strong Enough

    Recently I was at a city park and I saw a tall, strong man dressed in all black and wearing some clunky jewelry put his 4 year-old boy into a tree. The boy started asking to be let down.

    People started to look at the man and the boy.


    The dad did not let the boy down.

    The boy started to cry, he was pleading with his dad to let him down.

    The dad seemed ashamed his boy was crying and he left him there for too long. READ MORE

    Expressing Motherhood On Stage Helped Me Find My Normal

    Normal.

    What is it anyway?

    When it comes to motherhood, normal is… well, anything but.

    You might think you have it all figured out before that first baby comes. Heck, I’m sure we think we’ve got it all figured out before we even conceive, or attempt to, anyway. You make your birth plan, the nursery is perfectly set up in a way even Pottery Barn would be envious of and you fantasize day in and day out of the lovely strolls up and down the neighborhood you’ll take with your new wee one, teaching the child about the pretty leaves on the trees.
