Welcome Becky Vieira:
We’re joined on the Starline by a former publicist, then writer with motherhood stuck in the middle. Her latest project “Enough About the Baby: A Brutally Honest Guide to Surviving the First Year of Motherhood” is now out. We welcome Becky Vieira.
Becky, let’s go Beyond the Mic. How does a Sigma Kappa from California State Chico survive the PR world?
This book is filled with your own experiences and those of other moms. Why was it important to show that parenting is a challenge we all face?
My wife, mother, ex-wife all make that face when another mom has their child go temper tantrum crazy with a nod that says, ‘we feel you sister’. Why is it so important for mothers to realize that there is almost nothing that they are going through that someone else hasn’t been through before?
You say in your book “The concept of moms valuing themselves and their children at the same time is slowly starting to take hold, and, frankly, it’s about time.” Why has it taken so long?
