An honest take on life and parenthood

Hear ye, hear ye! Come to #LTYM Providence 2014!

on April 24, 2014


I’m interrupting my regular blog programming to share wonderful news with you: I will be appearing in a live ninety minute show on May 10th in Providence, RI! Called Listen To Your Mother Providence 2014, it features 12 women offering different perspectives on motherhood.

Listen To Your Mother (LTYM) is a series of live staged readings in 32 cities nationwide in celebration of Mother’s Day. In Providence, I will present a short piece along with several other Rhode Island and Massachusetts writers. The show aims to take the audience through a journey that celebrates and validates motherhood in all its complexity, diversity, and humor.

Each piece is fresh and original – as unique as everyone’s experience of motherhood – and there is sure to be at least one story that hits home for you, if not more. Prepare to laugh, cry, feel, and think. (Psst: Bring some tissues. You might need them.)

I went to my first rehearsal last week, and was blown away by the quality of the stories as well as their hilarity and poignancy. You will never forget the hour that you spend with us. And you don’t have to be a mother to appreciate and enjoy what you hear.

Here are the details on the show in Providence:

Date: Saturday, May 10, 2014

Time: 6 pm

Place: RISD Auditorium, 17 Canal Walk, Providence, RI (corner of N. Main and Angell St.)

Parking: Parking is available via on-street meters (very limited) as well as in fee parking lots. Leave enough time to find parking and walk over.

Ticket purchase:

Tickets are $18 per person and can be purchased via the link above.

The performance is also raising money for The Tomorrow Fund (, a local organization which provides resources to families with children battling cancer. Ten percent of our ticket proceeds will be donated to The Tomorrow Fund, and there is also the option to give more at the time of ticket purchase if you wish.

If you are in Rhode Island or the greater Boston area, we would love to see you in the audience!

If you are not in the area, you can look for a listing of the other 31 shows across the country via this link: . Just click on the “local shows” tab at the top of the page to find your city.

Tickets are on sale now in all cities. This year’s season officially kicks off this weekend in Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Milwaukee, and Nashville.

On a personal note, I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to be included in the show.  It’s been two years since I started this blog. While I may have aspired to someday appear in a show like this, it seemed like a faraway dream.

I couldn’t have done it without your encouragement to keep writing. For that, I have to thank each and every one of you who reads this blog. And of course the Pooh, my tiny muse.

Finally, I’d like to acknowledge and thank our two LTYM national sponsors: Blogher ( and Chevrolet ( #FindNewRoads, which are making this year’s show possible across the country.

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!
