Hi, I’m Koseli Cummings. I’m a writer and mom living in the Bay Area. I love talking about creativity, motherhood, tech, and home and how they fit together. This is the podcast for women who never want to stop learning.
Every once in a while, I read a personal essay on motherhood and creativity. This is one of those episodes. Enjoy! Find the original published essay on my personal blog, blog.koseli.co
Make Mother's Day What You Want It To Be
Talking about moping during pregnancy, natural deodorant, chocolate olive oil cake, I am America, and making Mother's Day exactly what you want it to be. (Because you can.)

Reading an essay on motherhood I wrote three years ago and published on my blog. It feels like a lifetime ago. At the time I had two kids 3 and under. Now I have 3 kids 6 and under with another one the way and I feel 1/100 the stress and anxiety I once did. :) Let me know if you related! You're Here Now http://koseli.squarespace.com/original-archiving/youreherenow
You guys wanted to know what we're having, so I'm sharing! I went to my 20 week ultrasound today, ran back to my car, and recorded my thoughts while it rained cats and dogs outside. It turned out to be a really special few minutes for me to reflect. Hope you enjoy!

Today I'm talking about taking a month-long break from freelance, wishing my kids could go to school on the weekend (not all, just some. :)), and the most beautiful tweet thread I've seen in a long, long time. It's a short and sweet episode. Hope you like it!

I talk about my beloved writing group, exciting potential freelance writing clients, my love of Trader Joe’s and turkey sandwiches, and two of my favorite recent YA reads. I tried out exercising and big surprise, it felt amazing. Can there be anything better than a SNL Skit making fun of The Bachelor?
