Lauren is a former political journalist who worked in TV and radio in the federal Press Gallery before taking a break to have her children. Having dealt with tantrums, meltdowns and hissy fits from the people who run our country, Lauren thought dealing with one small baby would be a breeze. She was wrong.
As she struggled to find her way in this new, isolating and confidence-crushing world, Lauren started to write: and people started to read. Her award winning blog, The Thud shares her sometimes raw, sometimes hilarious, always foul-mouthed observations of surviving motherhood, warts and all.
