MOTHERHOOD AND MUSIC HIGHLIGHTS
BY The Conversation Team
We hope you enjoyed Amanda’s chat with the amazing Brody Dalle. They chatted about her life after having a baby, her biggest regret and how she’s finding herself to be more like her mother everyday.
We also had two excellent must-read articles on the site from our wonderful contributors: The Music of Motherhood by Dr. Juli Fraga and a look at raising a child with music by first-time father Aadip Desai.
From this week came some great comments and tweets from our viewers, that we’d love to share.
Our viewer, Danna, had some really wonderful responses to the follow up questions after Brody Dalle’s conversation. We really enjoyed her answer to the question, “What did you find most surprising about Brody?”
Danna said, “I wouldnt say surprising, but she seems really “grown up” now the way she speaks and conducts herself is really proper and eloquent…I really admire that about her…She is a bad ass singer and a true “Punk rocker” but still is pretty educated.”
SusanneNYC gave a beautiful answer to our site post Are You Like Your Mother?:
My mother is deceased, having died when I was 13 years old. Growing up without her, I didn’t get to experience what most women do in being able to have a relationship with her as an adult. Because of that, whenever someone tells me that I remind them of my mother, it is a positive attribute for me because it gives me a connection to her that I wouldn’t have otherwise and makes me happy that she is remembered by others.
On Twitter, we asked what the “best lesson you learned from your mother” was and we just loved what @Caitlindios‘s mother told her:
“There are hoops in life you have to jump through in order to get to where you really want to be. Just get through them.”
We always look forward to reading your comments and suggestions because you are all so inspiring and full of fantastic ideas. Thank you for being such insightful and amazing people!
