Let’s jump in!
“One of my favorite memories with my mom actually just happened a couple of weeks ago while I was visiting home. She and I made supper, had a few glasses of wine and just talked and talked and talked about music for hours on end. From Fleetwood Mac to Roxette to George Harrison to Joan Baez to not really liking AC/DC that much over to Led Zeppelin, we covered a lot
of bases. In that moment that night I realized just how proud and happy I am that I’m her daughter and that I’m *hopefully* at least a little like her because she’s so COOL.” - Stacie, Ms. Rockabye
“My mom and I created a lot of hilarious memories together, especially when I was little. She has been a drama teacher for most of my life, so you might be able to imagine it was a bit . . . animated in my house. One of my favorites, though, was when she was putting on a production of The Emperor’s New Clothes
and it was part of a touring program that went around to different schools. One of the younger, male actors couldn’t do one performance and she asked me to step in. Oh, and I was about SEVEN years old, BTW. The part wasn’t big, but she put a lot of trust in me to memorize the lines and figure out the blocking in, basically in an afternoon. It was crazy and a total blast and hilarious and I will never forget it.” — Sarah, Rockabye Grrl
“My mom and I share the same birthday, September 12, so when I turned 30 and she turned 70, we told everyone we were celebrating our 100th

My mom always played The Beatles for my little sister and I before bedtime. She passed away when I was 13 but will always remember those nights.
