Tis the Season

by admin on November 21, 2013

You’ve heard of basketball season, football season and baseball season. There’s even strawberry season, holiday season and a hurricane season. Our favorite around here starts NOW:


A common thread around Listen To Your Mother Chicago are the infamous “Melisa and Tracey conversations.” (or we think so, anyway.)

And so it begins:

Tracey: EEEeee!!!! (giggle. Snort)

Melisa: SQUEE! OMG YAY!!! HAHAHA! *tossing confetti*

Tracey: Huh. I never took you as a squee‘er.

Melisa: Not as much out loud. More when I type. But I’m definitely an all-caps’er. Sorry.

Tracey: ME TOO. And I like to use funny auto-corrects as a part of my regular vocabulary.

Melisa: Yes, but we don’t want to scare everybody away with THOSE stories. Yet. Anyway, aren’t you really, really excited that we’re officially starting preparations for LTYM Chicago 2014??

Tracey: I am. I REALLY, REALLY AM.

Melisa: So let’s see. What do we want to tell the people today?

Tracey: How about we share the date? That’s kind of an important detail.

Melisa: Yes! Okay, give me a drum roll first. I like to sound important when I announce things.

Tracey: Oy vey. Fine. baddaaddadddaadddabaaddaaaa…..(Note that I actually made the noise out loud so that I knew how to type that.)

Melisa: (She did.) Please reserve the afternoon of Sunday, May 4, 2014 for LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: CHICAGO 2014! More information about the show itself as well as how to become a part of our cast-family will be available after the holidays.

Tracey: That’s not to say that we won’t still be on this site with our wit and adorableness! Stay tuned for regular updates. Maybe even a funny auto-correct or two.

Melisa: Wait! What if people don’t know what LTYM is all about? Is there something they can do?

Tracey: IF that possibility still exists (not sure how) then let us direct them to the links for the 2012 and 2013 Chicago LTYM shows!!

Melisa: Good idea. You’re always thinking.

Tracey: Ditto.

Please check out our 2012 and 2013 shows on YouTube! If you still want more, there are hundreds of LTYM videos from the shows across the nation.

Thanks for reading, and get pumped up! It’s LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER SEASON!!!

I’m laughing at that conversation because although I haven’t met either of you, I could picture it! Welcome back Chicago!

Thanks, lady! 🙂

Tracey November 25, 2013 at 4:34 pm

It’s what we do. Thanks!

Can’t believe how fast we are growing and it’s already your 3rd year. Wow. YAY!

I know, right?? Time flies when you’re having fun! 🙂

If I can, I will be there this year. I cannot miss another LTYM Chitown show.

We’d love to have you!
