    Much Ado About a Dog Bed

    Much Ado About a Dog Bed

    In This Episode of People with Parents…
    I made the executive decision to throw away an old dog bed, which is not as easy as it sounds. (It never is, is it?)
    Watch the video, here.
    I've started the physically and emotionally arduous task of cleaning out My Parents things. It's not just clutter. It’s making decisions about the things that they thought were important. Or things they never got around to throwing away and now I have to. So I’m clearing the clutter and finding the funny.

    Escaping the Sentimental Trap... This Time

    Escaping the Sentimental Trap... This Time

    In This Episode of People with Parents…
    Was originally done as a YouTube video. Watch it here.
    I've started the physically and emotionally arduous task of cleaning out My Parents things. It's not just clutter. It’s making decisions about things that they thought were important. Or things they never got around to throwing away and now it's my job. But I’m also managing to find the funny.
    Cleaning out the garage I found a treasure trove of tire irons, an empty box, and yes: my 10th grade geometry math homework. So, if you enjoy the audio in this episode, please be sure to check out the video.

Always Deep & Funny!

Great podcast, so much I can relate to. I really appreciate this show. Leighann is super funny!

This is the best, and very much needed

I was already a big fan of Leighann Lord and her comedy. After coming across her podcast and hearing her story of the surprise role reversal of children and parents, I instantly started crying because I was never able to fully articulate how and what I was feeling from my own similar story. Thank you Ms. Lord, first for the jokes and now for the podcast and letting me know that I am not alone in being a caregiver for my mom.

Simply wonderful

This podcast is a necessity for me. It enters spaces and places in aging not discussed openly with an excellent blend of hilarity and sobering poignant thoughts. It’s transparency and resonance are refreshing. Thank you for sharing these elements of yourself and your experiences.
