It has been an intense two weeks.
I find being a new mom is like
being on stage with no script.
Pure improv 24-7. There have
been beautiful moments and other
moments where I feel painfully inadequate
as a Mom. I'm learning.
These are my four favorite things that have
helped me during these past two weeks:
1) Fisher Price Newborn Rock -n- Play.
Jacob loves this. So do we. It is bright,
cute, lightweight to move from room to room.
If anyone is pregnant or just had a little one
this is a must have.
2) Raising Hope which comes on Tuesdays, 9:30 pm. It is
a hilarious show with a sweet tender side. The premise is
Jimmy Chance unexpectedly finds he is a father of a
six month old girl after his one night stand with a
serial killer. Yes, I did say serial killer. His mom and dad,
along with maw maw all pitch in to help Jimmy raise Hope.
3) The Actor Within: Intimate Conversations with Great Actors by
Acting has taken a back seat for a while. Reading this book
filled with interview with Ruby Dee, Hector Elizono, C.C. H. Pounder
Joe Mantenga to name a few made my acting heart sing.
4) My husband, Sean.
His experience of taking care of his little brother when he
was a baby along with his calm and laid back nature. Makes
me feel at ease all the time. One of the many reasons why
I married him.
What is your favorite things. Please share, I love
to hear them.
