Expressing Motherhood Boston Is Tonight. Also, San Francisco Promo, 2 for 1

I can’t tell you how much it has made my week to see photos from the Boston Expressing Motherhood rehearsal rolling in via social networks.


I have never not been at a rehearsal or show but I can tell by the smiling faces the women are having a great time and I know Local Producer and ExMo Alum Robin Maxfield will be a wonderful leader.

Tickets are still available for the show. Don’t miss out on something special.

It is hot here in Los Angeles, I’ve been spending most of my time trying to help out my good friend who lost her husband, a beloved friend of our families. I’ve been bonding with my old neighbors and despite this atrocious heat I’m making soup and trying not to lose my sanity because Fall in LA will make you do that.


The glimmer of excitement and happiness I felt in my kitchen this afternoon when I saw part of the Boston cast at the rehearsal gave me a burst of joy.

Break a leg Boston cast!

The Boston Marathon Explosion-Insight From My Mother-In-Law

My husband is from Boston.

So I hesitated a second before reading him the breaking news today.

I can only imagine if a place where I was from, say Des Moines, Iowa had similar breaking news, how I would react.

My husband’s mom is 71. She wrote about today in her Facebook status. Her eloquent words speak loudly. I have actually rarely seen her post a Facebook status, perhaps never?

She helps at nearly all of our shows so if you have attended an Expressing Motherhood chances are high that you have seen her.

Here are her words about today:

You have to live near Boston to know how unique and wonderful Patriot’s Day is here in Massachusetts. Patriot’s Day is a holiday that is celebrated in no other state in the US. By 5:30 am thousands of people have crowded into Lexington to watch the enactment of the Battle of Lexington, with men dressed like Minutemen and British Soldiers confronting each other on the town green. The Red Sox play baseball starting at 11 am so the game will end just in time for the crowds to empty out of the ballpark and cheer their friends and neighbors who are running the famed Boston Marathon. Families take their children to favored spots all along the marathon route to support these dedicated runners, many of whom are raising money for a charity dear to their hearts. In downtown Boston, family members wait near the finish line to congratulate their loved ones for a job well done. Everyone who runs the Boston Marathon says that the crowds are the best anywhere. Today in Boston the unbridled joy of Patriot’s Day has been changed forever. Our hearts go out to all those innocent people who have been wounded or who have died.
