The Boy Mom Podcast with Monica Swanson and Friends

October 20, 2020

Ep. 76 : Q&A Birthday Edition {Luke Swanson interviewing his Mom}

To celebrate my (50th!) birthday, my son Luke is the interviewer, firing me a bunch of questions sent in by listeners. Some more serious (difficult tweens, keeping toddlers in bed…) some just for fun (how is my bang-grow-out process going?) but all good conversations with my son Luke, adding his wisdom and humor along the way. Thank you for helping me celebrate my birthday week on the podcast, and I hope you’ll all join me for the Perfectly Imperfect Parenting Event on October 23-24th online.

About Monica Swanson

My husband Dave and I have been living in Hawaii for nearly 18 years. We arrived on the island with one son, and have had 3 more since. We moved to Oahu for my husband’s (3-year) medical residency training, and never left. (That seems to happen a lot around here.) We live on the North Shore on a hill in the country overlooking the “7 Mile miracle” — 7 miles of some of the best surfing beaches in the world. We grow tropical fruits, and in between surf sessions, I homeschool my 4 boys. Actually just 3 now — our oldest just took the long-dreaded-but-obviously-healthy-launch to Westmont College in Santa Barbara, Ca. I’m thrilled to report that he is very happy and adjusting well. We’re all trying to do the same.
