MONDAY, MAY 18, NOON EST… the ladies of Looking Glass Lane reconvened our online discussion following our talk with Ayelet Waldman’s about her memoir and latest book, Bad Mother: A Chronicle of Maternal Crimes, Minor Calamities, and Occasional Moments of Grace.
Listen to the RECORDING! Um… yes, the rumors of [a__ slapping] are true! Thank you, @MissIve!
But I guess I shouldn’t be all that surprised considering the color of last week’s conversation! Evidence of “bad mothering” ran rampant, including Morgan’s swollen-belly-with-no-ring and Ayelet’s Dead Baby Club, and “acts of service” that keep marriages alive!!!
Ayelet says, “People bring everything of their own experience, of their own life into [what I write] and they end up responding to their own anxiety rather than to me.” So what are YOU bringing? You can still download the FREE chapter from her book here. You can watch our segment… click more!
If you prefer audio only, click HERE! We have only just begun. This week, @MissIve, @Fleurdeleigh, @RiaSharon, @ModernSingleMom, @ZenMommy are reconvening to go deeper into the discussions we started today. We want you to join us. We’ve collected your comments but… we’re greedy so leave MORE! We can’t engage if you don’t. And we’re engaging, aren’t we?!
Check out the official launch page of the #badmother brigade, Looking Glass Lane. It’s a place where we will continue to discuss our passions, fearlessly.
