I am so proud to be part of the Listen To Your Mother 2013 San Francisco cast. It's an honor to be able to share my writing in this way with so many women I admire, and I look forward to an amazing show.
I started CityMama 10 years ago to document the "urban mother" experience. Being a new mom in a big city came with challenges (like trying to haul a baby and a stroller and groceries onto the 22 bus) that I wasn't reading about in other parenting blogs at the time.
Over the years CityMama became many things—part love letter to my children, part documenting of the recipes that I cooked for them, part commentary on child-rearing in a media-intense world. This blog has been my rock over the last 10 years—a place to share my feelings and to find community.
The past two years have brought many changes to my life, and the CityMama chapter, in some ways, feels over. A new chapter has already begun and while I have felt it too precious to share (there are some thoughts and feelings that I do want to keep just for myself and my loved ones), lately I have been thinking about writing again. When and if I decide to do it, I will let you know. It won't be here.
In the meantime, welcome to CityMama. Take a look around. If you need pointing in the right direction, you can start with a few of my favorite posts:
