Becoming a Mother: From Party to Parent

Kristen Chase, host of Motherhood Uncensored welcomes author Rebecca Woolf to BlogTalkRadio for a discussion of her new memoir.

RockabyeMotherhood Uncensored hosts Becoming a Mother: From Party to Parent tonight at 9pm ET (click to listen), featuring author Rebecca Woolf and her new memoir “Rockabye: From Wild to Child.”

Rebecca makes the transition from life as an odd-job doing commitment-phobic, chain-smoking, irresponsible party-girl to life as a work-at-home mother with a different kind of social life. Throughout, Rebecca doesn’t relinquish the token qualities of her free-spirited, pre-baby self; rebelling against both the “soccer mom,” and “young mother” stereotypes, challenging herself to grow up without outgrowing her dreams, and most importantly embracing motherhood without a map.

Sound like you or someone you know? Join Kristen and Rebecca tonight for a lively chat about motherhood, uncensored.

As a side note, Kristen was recently featured and interviewed on The Today Show. Congrats on that achievement, Kristen.
