Time sure does fly by, doesn’t it??
Those were exactly Lisa Loeb‘s thoughts when she realized her baby boy Emet was already a year old!
The guitar wielding mommy has put another 12 months of parenting behind her, and she recently opened up about what she’s learned in the past year!
Lisa says that she and her beau Roey Hershkovitz were much more prepared for Emet due to the practice they got with their first daughter Lyla! However, there were certain things they decided to do differently, such as celebrating his birthday:
“We had a really sweet birthday party for Emet on his actual birthday. Instead of the larger, sometimes overwhelming parties we├óΓé¼Γäód had for Lyla along the way, we decided to keep it more intimate, including the grandparents and friends who├óΓé¼Γäód spent a great deal of time with Emet through the year. Like Lyla├óΓé¼Γäós first party, this was a backyard get together, but it was Emet├óΓé¼Γäós birthday, so we included some of his favorite things: balls, music, and meat! A singer brought her guitar, some instruments and puppets and led the kids in a sing-along.”
Wait, Lisa Loeb hired a singer for her kid’s birthday party??? SHE’S LISA FREAKING LOEB!!!
Anywho, the singer also talked about being on the road a lot while she promotes some of her newer music, and she says the touring hasn’t been easy on her:
“The kind of touring I do isn├óΓé¼Γäót really great with young children: too much moving from place to place, strange hours, and if I brought them along, because of the strange hours of early morning promotion and later night concerts and everything in between that, I wouldn├óΓé¼Γäót get real quality time with them. I├óΓé¼Γäóve found that keeping them in their regular routines with familiar beds is a better plan. That being said, my work is partially on the road ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£I did several two week long tours, which were very satisfying as a performing musician with a new album out, but not so satisfying as a mom. I saw lots of photos messaged to me and called home to check in constantly, but was bummed to miss their everyday lives.”
Luckily, she’s found a solution to her problem and says she’s finding ways to work at home by doing voiceover work and hosting her own radio show!
We’re glad to hear Lisa and her family are doing well and it definitely sounds like she’s got this whole parenting business all figured out!
