I try very hard not to buy into the SuperMom myth…that constant pressure to do and be everything to our kids and families. We all know it’s impossible to attain and counterproductive to set those ridiculous expectations. That said, when my 7-year-old son puts a cape on me, by God I’m gonna wear it proudly.

The last few weeks have been crazy-busy. I spent a weekend at the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop, where I got to hang out with wonderful and talented writer-pals from all over the country, plus be inspired by some incredible speakers. Camp Erma was everything I hoped it would be.

I’ve also been preaching the Listen to Your Mother gospel every chance I get. I even did a TV interview without throwing up before or after!

Tomorrow is the big day for Listen to Your Mother Austin. If you haven’t bought tickets, there are a few left. Hope to see you there. I just might be the one in a cape.


  1. How sweet is that! Your son is a talented artist and I am pretty sure I would frame that picture in my home…probably over the mantel! ;) Good luck with your show today! I have no doubt it will be amazing!

  2. OMG- Have a fantastic show!! No doubt it will be amazing. Can’t wait to see the videos!

    And it was so lovely to see you at Camp Erma! As always, I never feel like I have enough time to chat with my favorite people, but I really enjoyed the time we did have.

    Break a leg!!!
