Parenthood teaches you some hard lessons about time and patience. You always have less time than you think to accomplish your goals and you always need tons more patience than you ever thought you were capable of. My son, Deco is almost five and I have definitely found it challenging to balance motherhood with my creative pursuits, but I refuse to give up. To keep my creative spirit alive I have spent the past year creating content for my YouTube channel Super Cali Listic where I document the fun, precious, crazy and fleeting moments of parenthood. Thanks for watching, laughing and crying with us.
Happy Halloween from Super Cali Land. Halloween is not complete with out a visit to a pumpkin patch.

Since I’ve left Super Cali Land for wintry London I’ve enjoyed shooting whatever happens to catch my eye in the moment. From construction workers outside our flat window to watching BBC with baby, here are some of my favorite moving pictures so far…
This week it’s back to Super Cali Land to confess the details of my double life as a succulent thief:
While Jesse works on American Psycho, I’m in London with mum and Baby Deco in a neighborhood called Islington. Today we wandered around, spying on the fashionable locals and admiring the old architecture.
Colorful umbrellas through a kitchen window.
“Chim Chim Cher-ee” is what we started singing when we turned the corner and saw row after row of chimneys.
When I heard the cheerleaders from my school were organizing a breast cancer awareness, pink, cowboy themed alumni cheer event at my high school’s football game. I was like, “You had me at PINK!” But when I strolled up to my alma mater with Gramsie and baby and saw the other girls that showed up to practice the cheer routine I realized that maybe they meant “if you graduated in the last five years alumni cheerleading event”. But it was too late, I was there. So I learned that routine and worked it on the field. SuperCaliListic representing for baby mamas everywhere.
I like so many new moms think we can cook, clean, bath, burp and still manage to have time for our own endeavors. The truth is you need help, and even then you’re working overtime. And now cue the cliche “But it’s the best thing I’ve ever done” and it’s true it is. I LOVE my little man. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t have moments where I go completely bonkers. Like this week when I TRIED to shoot a video about my trip to YouTube Space LA…
I’ve been organizing a lot of video files recently and I found this gem today. Living in southern California I have developed a fascination of the freeway overpasses. I filmed this one when driving in Los Angeles from the north bound 110 onto the north bound 101. I kept the sound file as a news program covering life in Syria happened to be on the radio as I was recording. Every time I hear about Syria the situation seems to get worse instead of getting better. Sending my love to the beautiful people of that beautiful country. I’ve never been there but hope to see it some day.
