When it comes to my tribe, I am so lucky.
I have said it before and I will say it again.
I feel so grateful that my best friends, with whom I speak to regularly, send me texts saying,
“You NEED to publish a new episode of the podcast! I miss your voice!”
They know my stories. They do hear my voice, over the phone and in person. They are just amazing and supportive and tribe: I love you!
That said, I love having this Podcast. It is so much fun. So much so that, if you have listened to (or listen to) Episode 3 you will hear that I had to record it twice, as I lost the first take.
All of my podcasts are recorded on my iPhone in one take, off the cuff, with no script or plan. I just talk, which is basically the perfect job for me. Because, if we have ever spoken, you will know how I tell a story.
Instead of going from A to B I go from A to Q to R to an explanation of how Q brought me to R and as an aside did you see this episode of TV show X and then to F and then, finally, maybe, I arrive at B. Oh, and this story will have been prefaced with my saying, “To make a long story short…”
Brevity is not my strong suit.
The most recent podcast from last week is based on a blog post that I wrote two years ago, entitled, Never. In it I invent a verb and in the podcast I talk about how life has changed in so many ways, and how it has also stayed the same.
Why am I telling you this? Because the next episode is going to be the long-awaited “Birth Story” story.
Birth Story #1 that is, when I had my daughter and first became a mom. The story that brought me here, today.
I am publishing this episode this week because my baby–the amazing, beautiful human who made me a mom–is turning seven. Is that even possible? I mean…
The best thing I can do is to point you here, which takes you on our journey. It links to when I wrote about planning her first birthday when she was six-months-old. And now she is turning seven?!?!?!??!
Also, my best friend is asking for her birth story to be on the podcast…even though she knows the story. She was there.
See? My tribe is the best tribe.
And so, if you want to listen to The Never Podcast (episode 3) or catch up from the beginning, you can:
click here The Podcast
go into your phone and look for my name or “Mommy, Ever After” in the iTunes podcast section
or google it.
However, with the last option, I caution you…you never know what you might find. I once had someone find my site because they searched for “Jeff Lewis baby unibrow“. So, actually, that could be fun!
In the meantime, I am going to go play with the little girl in donut pants who has asked me to do Just Dance 2017, teach her yoga (ha!) and snuggle.
Much love to you, my tribe and babies with unibrows,
