Meet Lauren. She’s a mom. Lauren has been there for her children every step of the way. There was that time her 2 year old got into his poopy diaper at quiet time and played in it for 30 minutes before he was discovered- poop was in every crevice in that room. Or how about the absolute agony she endured pushing her way through breastfeeding all the kids? That first month was excruciating with each kid (by month 3 she could have slammed her breast in a car door and not felt it). Lauren dealt with monumental tantrums patiently (most of the time) that included head slamming, protest urination and stuffed animal decapitations. She skillfully navigated the first heartbreaks as well as she did the fifth heartbreaks. And she gave three talks about the birds and bees, bless her heart. She made spaghetti 2,378 times and has cut up more apples than any one person could count. Best snuggler and safest haven on the planet. She is the number one champion of all her children and will be until her last day.
