  1. WOW! I’m so excited to read that you have a new podcast up! I was coming here to see if you knew about the Toys for Iraq drive. I’m chatting about it over on Material Mama:
    SPREAD THE WORD: Send your used stuffed animals and toys to children in Iraq
    They are in need of gently loved stuffed animals, dolls etc. to hand out to the orphans and children in Iraq. I have five large boxes sitting by my door and am ready to sew up some more.
    I thought your listeners might be interested. It would be cool to get a whole mama podcasting movement going with this!

  2. That was a fantastic podcast! When I heard your son say “I’ll always be your little boy mama” my heart just melted – my own son is 7 and we are very close. (BTW, we did the bowling party too last year – it’s a stage they go through it seems!)
    The stories too about Jack and the quilt made of baby clothes were really touching. Thank you so much for such an inspirational podcast :)

  3. I’ve just found your podcast through Faith of the Knitting Cook and I’m so glad I did! I find it interesting, informative and love to hear your sons introduce each segment. Your stories have touched me deeply on many occasion as I listen through all your back catalogue. Thank you for taking the time to podcast.
