I never expected to have a child. Never. But then I decided maybe I wanted to.
Can’t remember when we met, how rude. Doesn’t know how long we’ve known each other.
But I remember her in my uterus! I made her!
She and I are very close, it’s just the two of us.
We weren’t a religious family, but enjoyed the traditions. Loved participating with Bubbie (My mom) and loved being fed ice cream at nine months.
“Do you think you picked me out before you came?” – Lisa
“Was it embarrassing that I was a comic?” – Lisa
“I love being able to say I slept in a lot of backs of theatres when I was a kid”- Becca
I’m afraid she inherited my “artistic, sort-of let’s make things all the time,” and it’s hard to make a living when you’re making art all the time.
Becca dislikes that she spends money like I do.
“Neither of us know how to use what we do to make money” – Becca
Why does shopping make us feel better?
“How we picked out all this stuff, nobody knows” – Becca
“We are insane at manifesting clothing, but not the money to buy the clothing” – Lisa
Selling your clothes at wasteland, and crossroads, and how it feels like selling your soul.
The Thrift Mission – They have a Becca collection! Email to find out how to donate to them.
“If us buying clothing, in turn made someone else happy, then I am so okay with that” – Becca
“My friends line up at my back door to go through my clothes before I give them away” – Lisa
My friends get so much joy out of my old clothing. We are extremely gifted at manifesting clothing, we help others find things!
The moral of the story: JUST TRY IT ON.
We are so open to all the different opportunities and options, and we know that we would love to be surprised by joy. This is manifestation, just give it a try!
Did my daughter suck me into the yoga and spiritual life?
And I mean, really sucked in because we are both obsessed.
But we have such a close relationship, and we do fight, it happens. But we’ve traveled all over the country, and been to Paris together. (with all kinds of gauntlets. Sick for days, bank blocking our funds…)
How does she feel about me dating?
She wants me to be happy.
“I really hope she finds someone before I get married, or this will be depressing” – Becca
Don’t hide your emotions and problems from your children.
I passed on my sensitivity to my daughter.
You’re not over-sensitive! We just have a better alarm system.
Does it scare you that I might live with you in her old age?
My daughter is a full on believer in all this spiritual stuff. I am way more skeptical.
She feels as though she was born with belief in spirituality.
“Will you do all 40 days of the meditaion?”- Lisa
I would want to do it, I would plan on it, do five days and take two off and then kick myself for not making it.
Becca moved home after college for six months and I got her the most uncomfortable (BUT SO STYLISH) monk bed. I didn’t want to make her too comfortable for fear of becoming Grey Gardens.
Deepak and Oprah 21-day Meditation made Becca have a vision of the future and to stop messing around. It’s a really forgiving and gentle meditation program. (They offer free ones every few months!)
Becca yoga studio hopped all over town. She never paid for a class all summer. And that was a great idea!
I kicked her out because she needed to go live her life in her way.
Are you embarrassed of me still being in show business?
“No— You’ve been doing this a long time” – Becca
“Should I feel self conscious around your boyfriends family?”
No, more and more weird hippies show up, so you’re not alone.
I’m asking my daughter what she thinks I should be doing with my life
Making people feel comfortable with themselves and making people laugh.
“How do you feel like you can give the most to people, in the most natural way possible, what is your most natural way, of giving people joy or comfort?” – Becca
We are learning that we are lucky in our world we can do what we do.
Becca would have dinner with Jean-Luc Picard. Not Patrick Stewart, who Lisa sees at her local ice cream shop all the time.
“I don’t want to be cliche, but I really want to talk to Jesus” – Becca
Thinking about how my mom died 20 years from now. Does it scare Becca that I die?
No, she believes in technology.
What does she think of my boyfriend? “you’re both so youthful in spirit”
Is it weird to smoke pot with my boyfriend?
“No, it’s a comfort level thing”
What about my old boyfriends?
Being with someone because you both just really need someone.
“He has secrets, and I don’t like that.”- Becca
Becca yelled at my ex boyfriend through text message when he accidentally texted me. I thought we were getting back together!
Saying goodbye to my mom (Becca’s Bubbie) when Becca was away on tour.
We wondered if she never felt accomplished. We are both carrying on the support torch for her.
What does waking up feeling like a different person feel like?
We can shift and change those stories we tell about ourselves.
Kyle Cease, a comic that became a self-help guy.
How does she see herself dying? Bicentennial man, dying at home in my sleep with many cyborg body parts.

This is terrible
