A couple of years ago, my good friend, Steph, hosted Listen To Your Mother in her then-home town of Valpariso, Indiana. I was intrigued. What was this? I knew of Ann Imig (National Director of LTYM) through a small blogging get together that a lot of my Midwest friends had attended, but beyond that, I didn’t know much about this endeavor that has become a force in the blogging world and in 24 cities around the US.
Blogging is a weird and wonderful thing. Particularly in the “olden days”, blogging is a community, and some of these community members were, and still are, dear friends, although we have always been spread far and wide throughout the country. Listen To Your Mother, to me, brings this community together, in each city that is participating, and to the blogging community at large. It’s a night where we can hear one anther’s stories of motherhood, and share laughter, tears, and those “Me Too” moments.
Erin and I are new to the LTYM scene, but we are passionate about our community, our words, and those of our cast. Bringing this show to Kansas City is a labor of love. We are looking forward to sharing this night with you.
