Go Eva, It’s Your Birth Day

September 19, 2013

Photo by Bellies to Babies.   I’ll admit it. Part of me secretly hoped Mike would show up for baby girl’s delivery heaving with sweat in his Pumbaa costume, perhaps with Nick (in Timon greenery, of course) in tow for good measure, with some backup singing, lamaze coaching, and general hilarity. Just for fairness sake! […]

(Baby) Showering Us with Love

August 13, 2013

Often, people are incredulous that we travel full-time, as a family, on tour with The Lion King. What a logistical nightmare, they say. Where do you live? How do the kids go to school? Where do you call home? Does it ever get lonely? No, we say. We travel with plenty of people who are […]

18 weeks pregnant: Pickles and Parking in Detroit

March 3, 2013

After several days of hibernation and ennui in our luxe Detroit condo due to freezing temperatures, wind and snowfall, I finally worked up enough interest in the outside world for an afternoon out — to run some errands in Allen Park’s expansive shopping center.
