Hi there, I'm Laura! I am a working mom of 2 little ones, married to my best friend, John, and living in the suburbs of Chicago. I have a 3 year old daughter, Ellie, and an almost one year old son we lovingly refer to as Baby John, as this nickname helps to clear up otherwise confusing statements like, "well, John just shit all over his clothes, again." Now people no longer think I'm referring to my husband. I have a job I love, teaching high school biology for 11 wonderful years. I have been kicking around the idea of starting a blog like this for longer than I care to admit. I often find myself looking for a real world look at other working moms, you know, to make sure I'm doing it right, or that I'm at least going in the right direction. I have a hard time finding that out there, so I figured, why not put myself out there and see how it goes.
