Debbie Slaughter has been a mom for over twenty years and was actually asked “Is that all you do?” She had a hard time finding a way to sum up in words all that she does.

Debbie shared a bit of her story in last year’s LTYM: Southeast Texas show, “There are many moments that stand out in my 21 years of being a mom — sweet moments of mommy bliss and sorry moments of mommy losing her mind.”

In LTYM: Portland‘s 2014 show Meghan Yow shared her humorous take on how being a mom to a third kid is a lot different than mothering the kids before him. “It’s not that I don’t want to capture all of his sweet moments — I really, really do. It’s just that it’s so much harder. Where is my phone? Does the two-year-old have it?” Watch the video below or on the Listen To Your Mother YouTube channel.

Attention All Auditioners: How LTYM Casts Our Shows

February 5, 2015

IMPORTANT! LTYM casts based on how stories fit together, not on how much we love your (or any) individual piece. Think of a playlist or a quilt; it comes together because of how the pieces compliment one another, not based on the awesomeness of one singular piece. Your story may find itself into this year’s playlist. It may not. Your story is awesome because it is YOUR unique story, regardless of whether or not it’s right for this show, this year. Thank you. We are honored you’ve chosen to share your story with us. We can’t wait to listen.

In the 2014 LTYM :Twin Cities show, Nina shared about her choice to move to this country fifteen years ago. That choice made her children a minority even though — despite his brown skin — her son thinks he is white. “This country does not come with a parenting guidebook. But it does come with something even better — Google.  But there are questions that are not as easily answered. Decisions about giving up my culture and my upbringing for a different one for my children. And there is no Google for that.” Watch the video below or on the Listen To Your Mother Show YouTube channel. Listen To Your Mother auditions are happening now! Find a show near you.
