Cliff Notes: Mother’s Day

 In Blog

Mother’s Day is a holiday that everyone can relate to and share stories about. It’s in the storytelling that the magic happens. You can deepen your character on the show and allow your audience to share their lives, experiences and memories in a truly authentic way. Who doesn’t have a story about Mom?

With only a few days left in the week, it’s crunch time. So here are some ideas you can execute easily with the time remaining and add layers to what you already have planned.

Have your webmaster create a scrolling text banner across the page that will display messages from your listeners to their moms. “Tell us why you have the sweetest mom.” Website covered: check.

Record your mom (or another team member) saying all the cliché lines moms say. Edit them together and play back the bit. Great character defining bit for you: check.

Have your mom or a collage of moms read the following and produce it over an appropriate music bed. Adding the “What Else” factor we advocate at The Randy Lane Company, you could shoot video of various moms each saying a different segment and post in on your website. Going viral: priceless!

Before I Was A Mom…

Before I was a Mom…
I made and ate hot meals.
I had unstained clothing.
I had quiet conversations on the phone.
Before I was a Mom I slept as late as I wanted
And never worried about how late I got into bed.
I brushed my hair and teeth every day.
Before I was a Mom I didn’t worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.
Before I was a Mom I had never been:
Puked on
Pooped on
Spit on
Chewed on
Peed on
Or pinched by tiny fingers.
Before I was a Mom I had complete control of:
My thoughts
My body
And my mind.
I slept all night.
Before I was a Mom I never held down a screaming child
So that doctors could do tests or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
Before I was a Mom I never held a sleeping baby just
Because I didn’t want to put it down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
When I couldn’t stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.
Before I was a Mom I didn’t know the feeling of having My heart outside my
I didn’t know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn’t know that bond between a Mother and a child.
I didn’t know something so small could make me feel so important.
Before I was a Mom I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
To make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth
The love
The heartache
The joy
Or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn’t know I was capable of feeling so much
Before I was a Mom.
