My takeaways from the Zero to Three conference 2016

In 2015 I attended the Zero to Three conference for the first time. I was inspired to be in the company of 3000 other practitioners who devote their career to benefitting the care of babies. You can read about my biggest takeaway from that conference here. I walked away from the conference saying to myself – I want to present there … Continue reading My takeaways from the Zero to Three conference 2016

Happiness in a Minute

My groups have been more intense lately. In the last few, weeks as a result of world events, I have entered rooms where parents are already teared up, feeling overwhelmed, seeking community and connection with others. Normally in my groups the discussions revolve around challenging and joyful moments parents have had with their babies. We … Continue reading Happiness in a Minute

For the NON-CHEF (/working+distracted+couldn’t be bothered/parent)

I am not a chef. I admire and envy those people who feel so utterly comfortable in the kitchen. Usually it is because they have been watching their mother (father?) cooking in the kitchen since they were kids. There was no scene like that in my house. My parents both worked a lot and I … Continue reading For the NON-CHEF (/working+distracted+couldn’t be bothered/parent)

Helping Them Connect the Dots

My 4 year old did something terrible and unthinkable. He choked his 1.5 year old sister, enough to make her cough. He has pushed her before, grabbed from her, or given her a too-hard hug. But this felt alot different. I was terrified, mortified, and so angry. After making sure she was ok I sent … Continue reading Helping Them Connect the Dots

How I Survived an 11 Hour Flight On My Own With 3 Kids and Other Musings

Not sure how I got myself into it. A day flight, with three kids, on my own, including a 1.5 year old lap-baby. Is this what hell looks like? Let’s back up. I spent a great month in Israel. Grandparents galore! And we did it right this time – the boys went to camp and … Continue reading How I Survived an 11 Hour Flight On My Own With 3 Kids and Other Musings

The Third Baby

The third baby feels like a gift that the world offered to me and I selfishly took. Did I just write that? A gift? How about when she is crying at 3am or is having her 5th tantrum of the day? And Selfish? What about all the selfless giving that it entails? A gift, because … Continue reading The Third Baby

Creativity

For the last few months I have been thinking a lot about creativity. Mostly because I’ve had a hard time connecting to my own. Not to say that it has ever been that easy for me. It’s always been a struggle on some level. But this last year has felt especially dry. I know I … Continue reading Creativity

How Serena and Venus inspired my songwriting

Watching the game between Serena and Venus the other night was emotional for me. I was on the edge of my seat. Would Venus be able to stand in the way of her younger sister achieving a Grand Slam this year? Would Serena be able to get out of her younger sister role and beat … Continue reading How Serena and Venus inspired my songwriting

Back to School – For Me

Maybe it’s that back to school feeling in the air, maybe it has to do with my baby reaching her 9-month milestone, or maybe it is a reaction to last year, which was a year of production (CD, videos, a baby). Whatever the reason, I am feeling a strong need to fill up my cup … Continue reading Back to School – For Me

The screen we call Grandma

I know this looks familiar. Our kids have a pretty strong relationship with this screen that is both touching and heartbreaking. Every day I ask myself why I live so far away from my parents. I know so many of us do. In my case my parents live in Israel, and a life there at … Continue reading The screen we call Grandma

All I Want

Mother’s day is around the corner. What would I like for my present? Sleep wrapped up in a bow. I knew going into this that sleep wouldn’t look pretty. Three kids, two grownups, 2 bedrooms. So this is how sleep looks in our home at the moment. All of us but one 6 month old … Continue reading All I Want

Hello My Baby is getting some love

So far “Hello My Baby” is being received fantastically. Thank goodness. I have to say, I was a little nervous about it. I felt like I was taking a huge risk. Sure it has some light tunes like Hello, Cooking, Changing, and Peekaboo, but it also has some heavy ones, like Something Other Than a … Continue reading Hello My Baby is getting some love

Dialing in the Lullaby

Those of you who have taken my workshops know that one of the first things we talk about is how to use music to establish your routine with your baby. What would that look like? For one, singing the same lullaby every time you put your baby to sleep. By doing this you are helping … Continue reading Dialing in the Lullaby

The Kickstarter Campaign is Launched!

You guys probably know that making an album costs a ridiculous amount of money. Truly ridiculous. But it makes sense – I like to work with the best of the best and bring my songs to life in the most beautiful way I can imagine. On this album I am working with a Grammy winning producer named Dean Jones, the Babes, Jon Samson, Saul McWilliams, and other amazing musicians and technicians. And that can get costly.
