Introducing… Side Effects of Motherhood


This space has been a tremendous platform for me – it’s been my root system while allowing me to branch out in so many ways.

Sometimes I forget that I started off over five years ago blogging anonymously – not wanting to be seen, but so desperately wanting to be heard. A year later, I came out of the identity closet… three years later, I started doing YouTube videos.

This place will always be my touchstone… the place where I hope my words have weight. Video has satisfied an entirely different creative need for me – it is the soaring… the fun… the humanity in the fluff.

I’m happy to tell you about a project I’m working on that is launching today.

It’s a short video series for called Side Effects of Motherhood.

This will be a series of super short videos (because I know you guys are busy).  I think most of us who are parents knew some of what we were getting into – the lack of sleep when they’re young, the poop, the tantrums, the all encompassing love…

But it’s the little things that I had no way of being prepared for. You know, the side effects – although common, not everyone will experience all or any of the side effects. If they become too bothersome, talk to your doctor… or bartender… or masseuse.
